Abstraction in nature

Open Rating Results

Open to photographers with a bronze ranking. There are two other 'Abstraction in nature' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.

The word 'abstract' comes from the Latin word 'abstractus', meaning 'detached'. In terms of photography, this can mean detached from context, leaving room for the imagination to make its own impressions or for the eye to simple enjoy what it's seeing, without applying meaning. Nature is such an intriguing setting for abstract photography because, in nature, patterns are everywhere, and the level of detail goes beyond anything a human could create.

How it works

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.
