Abstract Plants and Flowers

In association with Photocrowd

Open Judging Results

This contest is open to photographers ranked between 251 and 1000 in this week’s Leaderboard.

Plants and flowers make wonderful and rewarding subjects for abstract photography. It usually, but not always, relies on getting closer to the subject and removing surrounding distractions. Shot on a still day, their inanimate nature means that time can be spent exploring different angles, distances and compositions. Some images will be recognisable, others will leave the viewer disengaged from the subject, and focussed more on the colours, forms and textures. All plants, including trees, are fine for submission.

Ranked Contests are a weekly chance to compete alongside photographers of a similar Leaderboard ranking. Three contests with the same theme run at one time - for photographers ranked 1-250; 251-1000; and 1001+. They open Saturday morning after that week’s leaderboard has been updated, and are open for 5 days. They are Premium Contests, Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote, so are worth 3x the standard ranking points.
