Buildings take on a completely different character at night. Lit not by the sun but by streetlights, and the glow of the town, and maybe lights from within the building showing us some of what goes on within. For the architectural photographer it is a bigger technical challenge, and getting the correct exposure, the correct balance between the different light sources, can be a case of trial and error at first, and then eventually experience. We are focussing on the exteriors of buildings, not interiors in this contest.
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.
