For this contest I would like to see your photos composed using the golden ratio. There are many interpretations of how we can use the golden ratio in photography, one of the most common compositions being the Fibonacci spiral. Using the golden ratio in photography is a great way to achieve a strong composition and also allow the viewer to be circuitously guided around your photograph. The viewer’s eyes will move along the line, resting on the end of the spiral. Photos can include people, buildings, and other subjects or objects. This rule of composition is great to tell a story.

How it works

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.
