Hey there everyone,

Happy new Year! I hope you all had a good start to 2013! And to all of those new to AMPt Community: Welcome, great to have you here!

Have you already had a look at all the groups here on AMPt Community waiting for your participation? Groups are the perfect places to get together mobile photographers with same interests. Groups are communities within our great community.

We're from AMPt Architecture: Multifaceted architecture photography. City Portraits. Photo features, interviews, discussions, tutorials and more. There's a lot to come. So if you're into architecture photography of any kind and want to meet other mobile photographers with similar interests feel free to join us at AMPt Architecture.

Some of you might have already seen the changes on our group‘s main page. For those who haven’t seen it yet: We added a new Page called AMPt Architecture CITY PORTRAITS.

What is it all about? Well, our goal is to create complex and multifaceted galleries of cities all over the world. We want to build a portrait of each city consisting of your architecture photos. People coming to this site can discover the featured cities and see them in all facettes you offer with your great photos.
This whole thing works tag-based. So if you want your architecture photo to show up in a city’s gallery, you need to use certain tags. As for now, this is a bit tricky because the tags differ between small letters and uppercase. To make this easier we decided to use only small letters! To make the magic happen please tag your photo:


Whereas the ccc stands for the city (or a shortcut). Please have a look if there’s already a tag for your city. The city may either already have a tile on the CITY PORTRAITS page we created or you can have a look at the discussion area in our group. I created a discussion in AMPt Architecture so that you can reply there which tag you used for your city. Before creating a new tag please have a look here if someone already created a tag for a city, it’s important that we all use the same tags.

As soon as there‘s a reasonable amount of pics for a city, we will create a tile so that you can access the gallery easily from the goup’s CITY PORTRAITS page. I hope all of you are fine with the fact that we could use one of your photos for such a tile.

On top of our group’s main page you can also find a link to all our architecture shots tagged ampt_architecture. This gallery will also be the base for our photo-features we’re planning for the future. So we encourage all group members to tag their architecture photos ampt_architecture!

If you have any questions feel free to ask us.

I noticed that I have to be a member of the group to add to the discussion where we list the tags we're creating. Will the tag still work if I'm not a group member? 

I want to start a tag for New Bedford, MA. It's very historic and has the country's largest fishing industry. I am planning on taking a lot of photos there this winter and would love to add these old buildings to your galleries.

Barcelona is up now. Thx a lot Nei for tagging your amazing photos of this beautiful city. In my opinion Barcelona is one of the most underestimated cities worldwide. It's so beautiful, cultural and it's feel is without comparison.

@Nookie & Neal: Thank you very much, we're glad you like it! Much appreciated!
