Water has always held a fascination for photographers, but creating abstract water shots by adding other elements such as oil or soap introduces colours and shapes that can take it to a whole new level. There are technical steps in taking these shots, so be sure to do your research. For expert tips and inspiration, check out our article on creating abstract oil and water images here.
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.
