Distinctive Images is for photographs only. That said, it is open to any subject with the exception of nudes. If you think it speaks to the viewer, please submit the image.
Please submit only one image per day. And make sure it is of high quality and some of your best work.
A special hello to collectors, potential buyers, window shoppers, and those that simply love to see the work of excellent photographers.
This gallery has been carefully, and very selectively, assembled so that you may see the work of a variety of artistic photographers without being overwhelmed by the sheer number of images placed in many of the more popular galleries here on Fine Art America.
For the members: I have posted a message regarding what makes a Distinctive Image in the group discussions. I would urge anyone considering joining the group to read this post first.
Photographs of other works of art by other artists---statues, sculptures, murals, eta all...will not be included in the gallery.
If I feature one of your images please post such thanks as you will in the discussion topic so labeled. You may, as well, post them in the comments under your featured photograph. (This helps keep the discussion page from being clogged with new threads simply offering thanks. While the thanks to me for featuring photographs is appreciated, I believe the discussion page should be held open for discussions.)
I am looking for Outstanding Photography. And this does not always mean * slick * “Madison Avenue type” Commercial photography.
Nor does it mean clean, near perfect, macro images captured in their “bird studio”, or “butterfly garden”.
That said: All photographic images will be considered, and some of these advertising type images, and the macro shots may very well be included. I encourage all members, and prospective members to visit the discussion page here to both learn more about the vision I have for the group, and join in the dialog.
Addendum: Just to let the members know... While there is certainly nothing wrong with pet photography, or photographing animals at the zoo, these images do not conform with the vision I have for this group.
While I have, and continue to receive images of toys, and miniatures---and I have great respect for such---I must say that they play no role in keeping with the criteria for this group. Please do not submit these to the group.
