So many today insist on living in the ‘NOW’ ……………well call me a doddery old woman ,but I happen to love yesterday and all of the rich glorious visions that are created from history ! I have been wanting to create a Permanent Feature Gallery around images from yester year ,( well todays images of what was created prior to ‘NOW’ ), however when Polly Wally Doodle all the Day came along with her inspiring title it was just enough to kick start me into action !!! As you can see by the number of images I have hung on the walls of our Special Room , this sure is a real pleasure and joy for me to have the honor of collating these ,LOL! Thank you all so much & an incredible special “Thank you dear Polly for the Title of this Permanent Feature Gallery ! "


Thanks Guys! No doubt about it ,YOU ARE THE BEST OF THE BEST !

FYI: All images are chosen for their image quality…not by Artist names. Artists may receive more than one feature at a time, if their image meets the theme & judging requirements.
Warmest wishes to you all !
Lynne

A Little PS
For those of you whom would love to have an 800×800 Feature of your image ……….
These are the things to look for & NOT HAVE
1) Crooked Horizon or subject
2) Name across the center of your image
3) Over Saturated Image
4) Noisy Image ( one which has pixilation in excess)
5) I adore Bokeh but NOT 99.9% out of focus macro
6) High Key getting to HOT SPOT images
7) BUSY images (I like to see a focal point )
8) Borders or frames unless within a textured context (That is part of a nicely blended texture )
Other aspects
I also am very aware of those members whom take the time to congratulate and encourage other featured members of our Group,I APPLAUD YOU , you are the members that make this group SING BEAUTIFULLY & there are many of you , I adore you all !!! I am well aware so many of us have extremely busy lives ,however when viewing the feature page it takes half a minute to leave a CONGRATULATIONS All on the bottom of the feature page , I know a number of our members actually personally congratulate every featured Artist , but that is a huge commitment to do that .
I dislike Takers (People whom are very happy to accept all comments and accolades without giving anything back) I am a Giver and I very much like to mix with people whom are of similar ilk as myself …..as a Host of this very large Group , a Group that I am extremely proud of …….I am searching through some 2500- 3000 images constantly ……….I have come to know you all personally through your work and ways ……….I hope that you have all also come to know me a little better through these Feature Galleries in our Special Room …….I always like to encourage WIN WIN situations …………………………..

and for those special Angels that write me messages of encouragement here , you are so appreciated and thanked
Bless your Beautiful Hearts & a big Thank you from mine
Lynne

Oh Lynne, I’m so so delighted that you have featured Polly’s wonderful “Pensive Stork” as your first image in this FABULOUS collection – when I first saw it, it sent shivers up my spine, it’s just so so perfect! Thank you also for featuring TWO of my works, I’m so so thrilled when I see the HQI Banner appear on my images.

I always consider it an honor to get a Feature, no matter in what Group. But to be included in this amazing Gallery is more than an Honor. I see some folks I know, many I don’t, but the quality of work is outstanding. Most of all, thanks to YOU for the time (a LOT of time) that you put into this gallery. I know I congratulate all the artists who share it, and we all thank you for caring so much about US!
