Starbursts are created through the phenomenon of diffraction. Not only limited to the sun, any light source can be used to create this effect. Whether it be street lights, car lights or even reflected light it can create a great focal point in an image. In this contest I’m looking to see starbursts from any light source and any genre. It could be a landscape shot with the sun, a night shot with streetlights or even a Macro shot incorporating the theme. So let’s see your STARBURSTS.
Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.
Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
