!!*Photography* Challenge Group!! Happy Holidays :-)

This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges


This challenge closed about 4 years ago.

The Challenge

Too many birds, too few challenges. Let’s see your flamingos. Adult or baby, one or many, captive or free… just flamingos. If there is ONE other bird in a group of a lot of flamingos, that’s ok. If there is one flamingo in a group of a load of other birds, that is not ok.

Any evidence of cruelty to animals/birds is not ok. Enclosures are fine as long as it does not look like a cage. For example a large bird park enclosure with a lake and a lot of room is ok. A cage by these terms is more restrictive and distressing so not ok.


As close to straight out of the camera as possible please. No composites at all. No superimposed images. This is the photography challenge group NOT the photoshop challenge group. Thanks!

WORK THAT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A PHOTOGRAPH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, even if it originally started as a photograph!!


  1. as usual, please, no insects, arachnids, reptiles or butterflies – thank you!
  2. also, nothing that requires a safe filter, nothing that you wouldn’t show to your grandma or to a 5-year-old (I shouldn’t have to say this for this subject, but we had some surprises…)
  3. no writing on the images, this is still a photography challenge group, keep images with writing on them out of this, thank you (unless, of course, the writing is part of the subject)

Note: Please don’t be disheartened if your image is removed from the challenge, you can always ask us why that happened, but the usual answer starts with the challenge description – please read it :-)

Judging / Voting Criteria

Please vote for your favourite(s) that fit the theme, as many as they are. Every vote counts!!
