|Hello dear fellows!
I just had my second photo inactivated since Iīv signed TN.
The first one was inactivated last may, and I didnīt agree with that because it was a picture showing a landscape with many interesting things on it, but since there was a cammelia in the FG and cammelias are forbidden here like all cultivated plants, after almost 50 points (so it was approved by many members!)the site take it off my page. In that picture there is a nice cloudy weather, some mounts a nice araucaria and the typical view of the second plateau of my state, named "Campos Gerais". So, I should cut off the cammelia to be ok for TN, because the cammelias are forbidden.
Now Iīve posted a dewy lemon, a few hours ago. Well, I donīt know who had cultivated it, but I agree that someone had cultivated it before and I just take my picture when I found it with that dew morning drops on the fruit. Inactivated. Ok.
The question is: How many members had posted so many garden flowers? And what about that botanic garden flowers we have seen? Well, I canīt forget that Iīve seen a papaya tree from the US Botanic Garden! Wild in the botanic garden? This is not cultivated?
Well, I would like to say that I understand TN's reasons and I sincerely respect TN's decisions about inactivations, but I just would like to complain a little bit, because I really donīt understand why people can post garden flowers, zoo animals and suddenly my cammelias (with all that nature on BG) and my close up dewy lemon are cultivated and forbidden.
I donīt know if you understand what Iīm trying to say, but flowers, fruits or animals can be cultivated by the man's hands and even cultivated, everything belongs to nature and needs nature to grow up.
If the manīs hand on it (cultive) is the real problem, so I canīt understand what are the zoo animals doing here and not living in the nature.
When the aquarium's pictures are for TN the same that are the underwater photos... when the daisy flower in the garden with a bee on it is the same of an unknowed name flower founded in the amazon... when the zoo parrots or the park ducks are the same that the wild hawks flying on British Columbia... why not the lemon could be the same of the botanic garden papayas, or garden flowers?
Iīm so sorry for all this complaining words. I really understand that TN is just trying to have some good rules to their nice site.
I just donīt understand the criterion, the standard, the common-sense to decide whatīs nature...
A few hours ago Iīve posted the forbidden dewy lemon. A few minutes ago Iīve posted some papayas, just because there are some already posted from a picture taken in US Botanic Garden...commom-sense!
All the best!
