Some wonderful abstract and semi abstract images can be created by intentionally creating blur in an image. Intentional camera movement (ICM), or use of a slow shutter speed on a moving object, or zoom burst during an exposure, are all methods of creating an artistic one-off image. In-camera effects will be favoured over post production effects, and new work is appreciated. I look forward to seeing your creations.
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.
