Please share your colour photos of astronomical observatories. The purpose of observatories is to house telescopes with which to observe the night sky, celestial objects and beyond. There are many astronomical observatories around the world, often located on high ground to avoid clouds and ground level light pollution. Examples are Mauna Kea Hawaii, ESO Chile, GTC Gran Canaria to name a few. In the UK, some are situated at ground level or in the roof of a building, eg the Royal Observatory at Greenwich. External or internal images are welcome and people can be in the photograph. Please only enter colour photos.
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.
