Backlighting or rim lighting, sometimes known as contre-jour lighting, can produce the most beautiful effect with the right subject. Please enter your best photos which have been taken with the camera pointing towards the light source, so the subject is lit from behind. The subject can be anything you like, such as nature, portrait, landscape, macro, still life etc. Images can be in colour or black and white. I look forward to seeing your entries.

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.
