This contest is all about the bleak and starkness that some landscapes can offer. Where I live there can be miles of open expanse with nothing to disturb or interrupt the landscape, add to this the huge skies, then the sense of bleakness can really be quite daunting. This contest is for images which show the beauty in the emptiness and bleakness of the landscape. Any landscape is acceptable but try to capture the essence of the stark and desolate. Colour, sepia, as well as black and white are acceptable as is post editing, but try and keep the editing to a minimum.
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.
