Less is sometimes more when it comes to showcasing the wonders of nature. In this case a single flower is our focus, shown in all its glory, against either a plain background, or a background of other flowers and foliage but where the single flower is clearly the main subject. If shooting close up then it could be interesting to play with depth of field, and to spend time really exploring the compositions that are available.
This Premium Contest is worth 1.5x the standard points towards your Leaderboard ranking. It’s Expert-judged AND crowd-rated, with your score from each combined. Find out more about ranking points here. Our Experts are some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best images, and provide valuable feedback to help you improve.
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.
