Strong composition is essential for most photography, and when played well one of the strongest and most intentional compositions is the dead-centre horizon. It doesn’t always work, depending as it does upon what’s above and below the horizon, and both halves of the image need to be well weighted in relation to each other. This is another contest is our ‘Composition…’ series where we’re exploring a variety of common compositional approaches.
Our Premium Contests are judged by some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best submitted imagery, and provide valuable feedback that explains their choices, and helps you improve. Judges are confirmed towards the end of a contest. Premium Contests also carry more ranking points, so if you’ve got your eyes set on climbing the leaderboard, they’re a great way to achieve that.
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.
