Nothing worse that ruins a picture with farm animals is the fences. Leave fences out.

When insects are taken as a micro (very close up) they are more likely to be accepted if the background does not detract from the insect.

Birds look better in trees, on branches, grounds, flying. But not food or water bowls, to atttact birds, fences, homes, hummingbird feeders, telephone poles, wires, streets. That is the surroundings that take away the greatness of a picture.

Please no humans in the images of under water images.

Please a full image of animal not just eyes, a nose, tail, let, color, stripes, ears.

Painting of animals are great and should look like the animal. If there made to look to much of a cartoon then they won’t be accepted.
Example of good art work were they look almost like there real
