This photo will probably not be selected for Google Earth according to the Photo Acceptance Policy but it is very beautiful.

I would recommend you don't upload full size photos. It is much better to use 72 dpi resolution an 500 pixels maximum. Large enough for a standard monitor.

Best regards

Could you please direct me to this policy. This is one of my most favorite images for both aesthetic and personal reasons. The place where it was captured is no longer in business and has not received the recognition it deserved.

Yes, of course. You should read the whole Help File to understand the purpose of Panoramio. There you will find the Policies. Notice there are two different policies: The Panoramio Photo Acceptance Policy and the Google Earth Photo Acceptance Policy. Panoramio is a website itself and many, many users interact (leaving and receiving messages in their photos) and in that way photos are actually seen despite the fact they may not be selected for GE.

Best regards

Draken I forgot to thank you for your kind comment about the picture. After reading the Google Earth Photo Acceptance Policy, I hope the reviewers will accurately recognize that the swans are in their natural environment and in no way could have been posed like that. For many reasons, the stars were shining on me that day. Thanks for all your assistance. Warm regards
