Astrophotography is a vast and varied genre, but far too often photographers stop at imaging star trails and the Milky Way. In this contest I want to challenge you to do something different.... Imaging photographing the surface of one of the Solar Systems planets? Or how about vast star clusters, or clouds of dust and gas known as nubula. Huge galaxies await your discovery, the moon, sun (be sure to photograph the sun safely!), aurora, shooting stars, comets - the list is endless.... You don't need a telescope, just a camera, tripod and a lens! I hope you have fun discovering and photographing nature's awesome wonders.
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.
