Great Royaldevon 2019-01-09 2:01

Hello Jorge,

Did you query the removal of your photograph?
I have posted photographs of wild birds, as have many others.
Maybe there will be an explanation forthcoming. We all need to know if something is outside the accepted terms.

This is a very attractive bird with a beak which seems to be somewhere between that of a finch or a parrot! It has lovely plumage and a very long tail. It certainly appears to be searching for some non-existent food!

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Default To Royaldevon: fruits


flowers, fruits and many other things are prohibited in this site. for me removal of a photo is a kind of violence.
my explanation didn't have result.
sometimes I have intention to abandon this site because these sort of things, many others did the same before...

take care

Studio-like, staged or posed

These are Some of the reasons for removing a photo.(TOS rule 6 / Photographs)
Jorge did not post a photo of a bird, which has never been removed, but a rather close photo of bowl of fruits on a table in his own house. The rule was added long ago because we didn’t want photos of baskets of appels in your kitchen.
If the fruits had been photographed on the tree or on a market basket in your village it wouldn’t have been a problem at all...

Thank you for understanding,

Viviane / Porteplume TE moderator

Default Removal of photograph

Hello Jorge, Viviane has offered an easy to understand explanation as to why your photograph was removed.
I know it hurts our dignity sometimes, when a photograph we like is removed but if there are rules about what is acceptable, I suppose we all have to abide by them.

Never mind, your most recent photograph is lovely!

Bev :-)
