Natural History 2016

NATURAL HISTORY: Depicts living, untamed animals & uncultivated plants in a natural habitat, geology & the wide diversity of natural phenomena, from insects to icebergs.

Photographs of animals, which 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 enviroment modified by humans, or natural forces, like hurricanes or tidal waves, reclaiming it.
