Welcome to the Australian Bush Group!
This is a Group for you to show & tell about where you went bush (out of the Urban Jungle & into Rural Australia) and what you saw and did when you got there!
This is the second Time Paula has been a Challenge winner!
☼BRAVO Paula! ☼
☼ Please keep an eye on the Australian Bush Heritage site! ☼
Bush – _The Bush, a term used for rural, undeveloped land or country areas_ according to Wikipedia
IE no Urban Suburban or City shots!
Composition of artwork for this group should be predominantly landscape oriented (We are trying to portray pictures Of “The Bush” not that the bush just happened to be where you were!)
Only art from publicly accessible Rural areas – no Urban Development & European looking back yard garden shots please (Native Vegetated Reserve Parks or gardens within the urban areas are acceptable at the discretion of the moderator)
People and people created things can be considered “out bush”, but please remember Rule 1 when submitting artwork of this type – predominantly landscape orientated. _Shots must have a predominant element of “landscape” to it!_
- Please remember Wikipedia’s definition – rural, undeveloped
(Including but not limited to: people, birds, insects, & animals; huts, lodges, cabins, & houses; campervans, caravans & tents; farm-buildings, industrial buildings & equipment; roads, tracks, pathways & railways; bridges & buildings; gates & fencing; personal vehicles, trucks, tractors & boats; etc – all can be rural things and as such can be in the shot but not the main body of the shot This is so we don’t get, for example, a photo focused mainly on a tractor even if it is rusting away in a paddock somewhere all it is really, is a picture of a tractor!)
In the description box there needs to be location information of where images were taken / made / writings were influenced by (In the case of writing – if not included within the piece, the area influencing the written piece described [and pictured if possible] in the description box)
With a desire to keep the focus on accurate impressions of the Natural Australian Bush, If not set in predominantly bush landscape settings, this group will not accept:
a) close ups on animals, birds & insects – please see the Australian Wildlife group
b) close ups on florals – please see Australian Native Plants
c) and please keep HDR and other computer generated effects to a bare minimum (Subsequent to the discretion of the moderator)
Journals are to be about the Australian Bush and your experiences within it and your experiences of this group (Other journal entries may be refused)
Please keep an eye on the Group News to be involved in the group action!
(Forum discussions do not necessarily have to be limited to bush and rainforest issues. These entries help us get to know the diversity of group members’ interests!)
Please limit your uploads to 2 images per day per person
(and be aware that we will [sadly!] remove incompatible work)
