Open Judging Results

It’s tripods and manual mode at the ready, as we point our cameras to the heavens and photograph the night sky. Astrophotography tends to involve a decision on whether to go for a long exposure and shoot dynamic star trails, or a shorter exposure and show off the glory of the Milky Way. Both approaches require a lot of patience, and trial and error, but when mastered produce some of the most impressive images you’ll see.

This Premium Contest is worth 3x the standard points towards your Leaderboard ranking. It’s Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote. 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.
