  1. For posting and critiquing avian images. The images may include hand of man elements. If your subject is captive, please disclose that fact. If you have attracted your subject or subjects into photographic range with food, water, audio, or by any other means, please let us know in your original post. If you have significantly altered your image by adding or removing elements of the composition, we ask that you let folks know that as well.

  5. For posting and critiquing images of landscapes and scenery, including panoramic, stitched, and HDR images. Images with hand of man elements are obviously fine as are both color and black and white images. If you have significantly altered your image by adding or removing elements of the composition, we ask that you let folks know what you have done.

  6. Not every image adheres to the so called 'rules' of traditional photography. This forum is dedicated to breaking out of the box of conformity. Post Avian, Wildlife, Macro/Flora, Landscapes and other Natural History images with or without hand of man elements that will expose us to new ideas and new ways of thinking. This forum is for Out-of-the-Box images made in-camera (including infrared) or those modified using a variety of post processing techniques including but not limited to Photoshop filters and plug-ins, toning, de-saturation, and hand coloring among others.

  8. We are proud to introduce the creation of a new BPN Forum: “Story Sequences.” In this forum members only will be able to post no more than 5 images of the same subject or scene that tell a story. Rather than offering critiques on the individual images we are seeking comments on the story, on the effectiveness of the photographic sequence.
