Landscape should be a category on it's own.

Have you thought about having landscapes as a separate category (incorporating seascapes of course) as the landscape and nature category is currently huge as it covers a large spectrum of subjects. Plus I feel that landscape photography is a genre of its own and should be distinct from the rest of nature photography like flowers etc.

    Richard, if they take Flowers and Plants out of the Nature category, where would you have them put it?

    As for Cities, Towns and Villages, it may not be nature, but it is landscape, so again, where would you have them put it?

    Personally, I think if one subcategory didn't duel against a different subcategory, there wouldn't be an issue.

    I tend to agree with the Flowers and Plants being put in their own category. A majority of those are shot in studio environment, and they tend to be like cats and dogs and bug photos, a bunch of them. I think it was P.T. Barnum who said, never try to compete against a baby or a puppy, you will always lose.

    I agree it's better for landscape to have a separate category. And why not make pets & wildlife into one? They have similar sub-categories.

    Also, I think that 'Towns and villages" should be a sub-category of 'Architecture'. I often see pictures in the category 'Landscape and nature' that show neither landscape nor nature and it is quite weird.

    Enlargement of Categories

    i think what adibudojo had proposed is a good way to categorize the pictures.

    and would it be also possible to put subcategory by default (if people don't choose the subcategory where his/her pictures are to be placed, then he/she would not be able to post their pictures)

    i frequently get confusion (and usually end up with 'skip') when i am to compare thngs that do not belong to same category.
