Flowers as a separate category,

Flowers need to be its own group with things like "water flowers. roses, lilies, bouquets, spring flowers, macro centers, etc."
As an example: Yesterday there was 597 entries in "nature up close". Of these entries 293 were "flowers".
It doesn't seem fair to the other sub-categories.

Lets hope Pixoto also consider taking Birds out of Animals and giving them their own category as well.

It will be nice to be able to compete in Nature Up Close without the avalanche of homogenous water lilies and dahlias. Now, if you could just do something about the "photographer of the year" being won by someone who takes these shots incessantly and repeatedly. It's just a production line, it is not art...

Nice, now there is a new category Flowers, with subcategories
- Flower Arangements
- Flowers in the wild
- Single Flower

So Nature Up Close is filling with photos of animals http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra... , artistic waterdrops http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra... , slices of food http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra... , people http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra... , but there is not welcome to put a photo of daisy. No comment!

There is a category Artistic Objects with several subcategories, among them is
Still life

I have a question - is "flower arangement" a part of Still life or not?
The same dilemma is about food - shouldn't all the artistic photos of fruits (apples, lemons, oranges, etc.) stand in category Artistic Objects - subcategory Still Life?

The category "Food & Drink" is filled with artistic photos such as http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra... - why? It should be placed in Category Artistic Objects, subcategory Still Life.

Hello Babica, sometimes photos can fit two categories. I will have to check this, but I think flower arangements (when there are two or more objects in an unnatural setting as the subject) can be posted both in Flower category and in Artistic objects category/Still life subcategory.

If you see photos in wrong category, please report it.

As for photo of 2 bell peppers you posted, correct category is Food and Drink ("If you can eat it or drink it put it here." - from category description).

Hope this helps.

Hello Babica, I have chacked, and flower arangements should go to Flower category, not Artistic objects category.

Dear Jasenka,
Thank you for your nice answer. I appreciate it.

About wrong categories, forgive me but I continue to believe that this can be done by official Pixoto stuff twice during the day hits daily photos and remove intruders. Much better than waiting for reports.

After all, in my opinion the http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra... does not belong to Nature up Close, but in Still Life or in Food.

Have fun!
Best regards,
Babica

I like the new flower categories but I don't think its fair that they recategorized my picture and took my badge away that I entered in the nature up close flower subcategory BEFORE they added the new categories.
