Open Judging Results

This contest is open to photographers ranked between 251 and 1000 in this week’s Leaderboard.

The toning of photographic prints was a commonplace practise that lent a different colour to the print, usually either a brown/sepia or blue tone. It was also thought in most cases to improve the archival quality of the print. It worked by replacing the metallic silver in the print’s emulsion with a different silver compound, such as silver sulfide in the case of sepia toning. Nowadays of course a tone can be applied more straightforwardly, and with less potential health impacts, using our post processing software. It can be a fun way to play with your imagery and create a completely different look and feel. Images submitted to the contest must be black and white images that have had a single tone applied to the whole image.

Ranked Contests are a weekly chance to compete alongside photographers of a similar Leaderboard ranking. Three contests with the same theme run at one time - for photographers ranked 1-250; 251-1000; and 1001+. They open Saturday morning after that week’s leaderboard has been updated, and are open for 5 days. They are Premium Contests, Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote, so are worth 3x the standard ranking points.
