For many, blue skies still rule when it comes to taking jaw-dropping photos with maximum impact. That rich blue, often boosted with the cunning use of a polarising filter, and the accompanying direct sunlight that can bring a scene to life in a burst of colour and contrast. We’re not just looking for blue skies in landscapes. They’re present in many genres of photography, but for this contest let’s make them a key feature of the scene, and not too incidental.
This Premium Contest is worth 1.5x the standard points towards your Leaderboard ranking. It’s Expert-judged AND crowd-rated, with your score from each combined. Find out more about ranking points here. Our Experts are some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best images, and provide valuable feedback to help you improve.
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.
