Hi,

I was wondering if there is some sort of policy concerning quality of underwater photography. I believe there is a market for it, but because of the nature of such photography keeping up with some of the technical standards that are typical for other types (landscape, portraits, macro, etc.) is very hard or even impossible.

I’m asking, because I’ve had submitted around 40 photographs, and all but one has been approved, and was wandering if I should bother with uploading another batch.

Thanks in advance.

There’s certainly a market for all styles of photography. If it’s a strong image, it doesn’t matter where it was taken. The same standards of quality will apply to every image.

Of course, I first read your post as ‘underwear photography’, so take that as you will :)

So it will be almost impossible to pass review from that topic, or there will be option to downsize to mask some of the flaws of this type of photography – that’s sad.

Thank you for clarifying.

Hi Lukasz,

We don’t currently have a specific policy for this category of imagery but, considering the differing technical limitations, it would be good to develop.

I will have our team look into more details on this area and develop a more clearly defined policy for it.

Thanks!
