Submissions Policy

Members may submit only one photo per day per folder.

What we are looking for:
- Correct exposure, the image is neither underexposed, or overexposed.
- The areas the need to be focused are in focus, not blurry.
- The subject is not too far away nor is it lost as the subject of the photo.
- No motion blur, such as from camera shake.
- The photo has proper color cast (proper use of white balance).
- The colors of the photo look true to life, not oversaturated.
- The noise and grain are not overpowering.
- No dust spots on the sensor.
- No dust spots, scratches, or other types of interference patterns from scanning.
- There is enough contrast, not too flat or overdone.
- The orientation is in good shape, vertical objects are vertical, horizontal ones are horizontal, the image is not crooked.
- Retouching and corrections are not noticeable and the photo still feels natural, details aren't smoothed out and lost, image is not over sharpened
- Any post-processing looks natural (no overdone HDR images)
No images with excessive amounts of glare (like those taken in underwater viewing areas)
- Attention to composition, good use of position of elements in a photo.
- Please keep in mind, that while these are good technical aspects to keep in mind, sometimes artistic vision abandons them to make your point of view.

What we are looking for:
- Wild or captive marine mammals
- We do not mind humans in the photos, but make sure they are an active part of the photo, not a distraction.
- No images with excessive amounts of violence, gore, or overly sexual imagery. Predators and prey photos are allowed, as long as the photo is not too graphic.
- No photos of toys, plushies, jewelry, and other inanimate objects.

- Please submit images to the correct folder.
- Feature folder is invitation only, DO NOT submit photos to the features folder.
- Photographs only. Drawings, photo manipulations, and anything else that isn't a photo won't be accepted.
