An Open Door

In association with Photocrowd

Open Rating Results

As an invite to move forward and look beyond, does anything work quite as well as an open door? The house within, the next room, the outdoors and an escape from confinement. Or maybe nothing, maybe it’s better in here, or maybe it’s a ruin, and the door now leads nowhere. The open door is an interesting construct and aid for us to play with in our photography. From a technical perspective beware of different levels of brightness on either side of the door, although software nowadays does allow for an easier balancing of these light levels.

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.

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.
