Subject definition for Nature is…
Nature photography depicts living untamed animals and uncultivated plants in a natural habitat, geology and a wide diversity of natural phenomena, from insects to icebergs. Photographs of animals that are domesticated, caged or under any form of restraint, as well as photographs of cultivated plants are ineligible. Minimal evidence of humans is acceptable for nature subjects such as barn owls or storks adapting to an environment modified by humans, or natural forces such as hurricanes or tidal waves reclaiming it. The original image must have been taken by the photographer, whatever photographic medium is used. Any manipulation or modification to the original image is limited to minor retouching of blemishes and must not alter the content of the photograph.
