What's non-real?

Showing the world in an unexpected way. This can be caused by choosing non-usually perspectives, by pattern of objects or scenery, by presenting unreal colors, by taken pictures in a special focus or by showing the obscurity of life, nature, objects, people itself.

I want this being a place to share art which is not only photomanipulated, heavy edited but I also want this to be a place where we can share the "tiny" curiosities of our world and life.

The Featured folder will not be opened for submission.
It's a special folder, where we move art, where we think it's extraordinary. This selection will change from time to time. In this journal you find a collection from this folder Randomized News 4.9.


  • In the Featured folder of the favourites you can submit pictures where you personally are the opinion that it's non-real. The suggestions here are automatically approved and you can submit there one picture per day.

  • To the Affiliate Submissions folder of the favourites can be submitted art from any member of our affiliate groups. The suggestions here are automatically approved and they can also submit there one picture per day.


Members are rightly concerned about their work being copied and stolen and many people will put a signature or copyright mark on their work. DA provides such a mark that appears on full size images, but not on thumbs. However, the DA mark is large, obtrusive, and in most instances spoils the viewer's pleasure. We usually decline such images. However, we would encourage you to develop your own mark or signature if you so wish.

Additionally here my intention and background of building this group, because this happend more or less by accident.

Here is the story. I have had often pictures which are in my eyes not enough abstract to submit them to a "abstract"-group but too curious or obscure for submitting them to an "all-art" or a "themebased" groups.

It happened that this pictures were declined because they didn't fit to the rules or
fulfilled not the quality standard which was wished in this groups and this underlines my feeling that there is no home for this pictures.

One evening I thought about this circumstances and had an idea of a group name. I checked if this name is already in use ... and it was free ... and I've taken the chance and opened this group.

If you sometimes have the same feeling like me, please feel free to take a view or to join and share your art. I would be glad to see you here joining and sharing.
