Nature (N) 

Nature photography is devoted to displaying natural elements such as landscapes, wildlife, plants, and close-ups of natural scenes and textures. A stronger emphasis is put on the aesthetic value of the photo. Human elements should be avoided unless they enhance the nature story. The presence of scientific bands on wild animals is acceptable. Digital enhancements are allowed that could have been done when the image was taken but do not change the truth of the original nature story. The addition, removal or combining elements from separate images or cloning are not acceptable. Images may be color or black and white. Electronic borders are not allowed on Nature images.
