What is a portrait?

Wikipedia defines a portrait as "a painting,
photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its
expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the
person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of
a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the painter or
photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer."

Merriam-Webster's definition is,
naturally, a little more succinct: "PICTURE; especially : a pictorial representation of a
person usually showing the face"

is this group dead?
Not quite! The admins are just very overloaded. We appreciate your patience. :)

If you've got a submission that's expired, you should be receiving a request from us to include it in the galleries. Thanks!

Thank you very much for accepting me to justportraits. Wishing you all a creative and joyful holiday season, and beyond into the new year.

My submission was left expire, twice in a row now.  Is the group now being maintained anymore?
There are a couple of us admins left, but please keep in mind that the holidays are quite a busy time of year for most people. We're doing our best to keep up, but there are a ton of backlogged submissions.

Once we figure out our admin situation, we'll send out a journal about the submissions. For now, if you would be willing to post me a link or thumb to the artwork you submitted, I can request it into the galleries for you so it doesn't have to wait in the queue. :)

Sorry for the inconvenience!
Cyril-Helnwein Dec 28, 2013  Professional Photographer
Thanks for the info.  Sounds like you need more (active) admins.

I'm not sure I remember rightly which submissions they were, but I think it was these two:……

The first one is already in our galleries, so you're set there. :) Unfortunately, we seem to be having a running problem with the submission of deviations. I'm getting an error that submitting your work would exceed the two deviations in one week limit.

Would it be all right if we waited a week to see if things work themselves out and then try again to submit that one?

Apologies for the inconvenience!!

Each time I try to submit a piece it says I need to wait seven days.  But I never see it say it will be reviewed.  I don't mind it being declined, I don't pretend to think my art is worthy of more than you judge it to be, I just don't understand why I am always getting the same message when I try to submit?
Which piece are you trying to submit? We are having a rough time going through all the old submissions, so it's possible that yours is buried among the hundreds of others.

I'm not sure why you're getting that message, but if you post me a link or thumb in this comment, I'd be happy to request your image into the galleries since you've been having so much trouble.

Hope this helps! :)

Thank you for responding...

Here is the message:

Submission would exceed the global limit of 1 deviation every 7 days.
I get that every time even if I wait a couple of weeks to try to submit.  I am not sure if I ever got anything accepted.
Here is the last one I tried:Beck for Rebekah--Leigh by Legrandzilla  
It is very kind of you to offer; but I am not looking for special treatment.  I just was wondering if I was doing something wrong, or if my work was not good enough.   I am seeing other people get things in the gallery so I know it isn't a problem with your submissions or ability to take them..
