Whytake is an amazing online resource to see and share quality Nature images, it is a purely Nature based place, so no captive animals, composites or manmade elements allowed, but multiple image creations of a naturally represented scene (including HDR, Focus Stacking and "Blending") are very much embraced!
In my opinion Whytake.net is very different from many of the photo sharing websites and forums that can be found on the web these days, it is very unique in it's emphasis on the IMAGES, rather than a fake popularity contest.....and for this it is most definitely Alone (but certainly not Lonely) in it's unique conception and presentation!
Whytake is all about the photo's doing ALL the talking (which is surely what photography should truly and only be about!!!)
Whytake has eliminated the bullshit that can be seen on some other forums (thanks to it's creators), which can make certain photos more popular because of the person rather than the photo.
Whytake also eliminates the sometimes unfriendly Elitist vibe that can also be found on some forums....which is a HUGE and refreshing contradiction, simply because Whytake showcases many of the very top of the TOP nature images that can be seen today........and if you look a little further you can find all kinds of other resources that are so helpful to Nature Photographers.
Whytake.net is owned and run by Alister Benn, Rafael Rojas, Juanli Sun and Anca Minican.....and they all have great taste in photography (including their own!), they have created a very friendly and neutral community (and again, their emphasis is totally on the images).....a great place to participate, that has (maybe most importantly) been created by professional Nature Photographers who have a passion for nature (sounds obvious?, but it can sometimes be a rare thing these days).....and this passion shines through, just check it out to be inspired! http://whytake.net/Inspire
