Welcome!



What is SpecificPhoto? It's kind of like a photo challenge group, but instead of a general theme we give more detailed descriptions of what we want. So instead of "fruit" we'd say something like "sliced apple on a saucer" and then the fun would begin! Don't you think it will be interesting to see how differently everyone interprets the idea?

Visit our blog for more information.



RULES AND FAQ CAN BE FOUND AT THE LEFT OF THIS PAGE. I STRONGLY ADVISE THAT EVERYBODY TAKE A LOOK AT THEM. THANK YOU.

RULES

Our rules?


1. No photomanipulation. This is a photography group. Basic editing is fine, but nothing drastic, okay?

2. Your submission must be a new photo taken after the challenge was issued.

3. You can only submit one photo per challenge, so make sure you have THE ONE before you submit it.

4. If your submission doesn't fit the challenge description, it will not be accepted. However, we will allow you to fix the mistake and resubmit your photo.

5. Any deviation that does not relate to the challenge in any way will be rejected. This is called "deviation dumping," and it is very much frowned upon. If one breaks this rule three times, they are kicked out of the group and banned from it with no chance to rejoin.

6. Any submission sent to us during the voting phase will be rejected, regardless of its relevance to the challenge. The voting phase starts the moment the countdown timer runs out.

7. Nudity, etc. is fine by us. Anything that doesn't violate dA's rules is welcome here.

We are very lenient people, and we try to be fair to everyone. These rules are pretty solid, but there is still some leeway. We will make exceptions depending on the situation. Just talk to us if you're not sure about something.

FAQ

Q: How are we supposed to decide on who to vote for?

A: However you want to! Whichever one you like the best for WHATEVER reason deserves your vote.

Q: Do you have set times for submissions and voting to close?

A: Yes, we do. We will always have a countdown at the upper left of the home page so you'll know exactly how much time you've got left.

Q: Do you take challenge suggestions?

A: Of course we do! They're welcomed with open arms. If you have one to offer, send it to us in a group note and we'll add it to our big hat full of ideas!

Q: How much editing is too much? What do you mean by basic editing? etc.

A: This (iluvbee1990.deviantart.com/art…) is an example of what is okay. These (fav.me/d2nay17 fav.me/d1guc42), while lovely, are examples of what is not okay to submit here. All we're really asking is that you don't drastically alter the scene. There are probably special cases where we'll accept more manipulation, so if you're not sure whether or not it will be okay send Altitudes-Butterfly a note and she'll let you know if it's okay to submit. We understand that the line isn't exactly clear.

Q: Can I vote for my own submission?

A: Yep!

I believe the countdown was accidentally set to end early.
