Black and white architectural photos are expressive and an effective means of capturing a timeless image with plenty of drama and mood. Colour can draw attention away from certain elements of an image and cause distractions. Black and white, on the other hand, accentuates dramatic architectural elements, drawing out their features with shadow and shade.
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.
