A bayou is a small body of water, usually brackish (partly salty), that is an off-shoot of a larger river, bay, or lake. These can be quite picturesque and, in the southern states of the United States of America, is usually a place where boats are kept in lieu of a marina. I would love to see your photos of bayous, photographed in any part of the world, whether in colour or black and white.
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.
