For this competition I want to see your best architectural shots without linear distortion.

Linear distortion occurs when you point your camera at an angle at an object, such as pointing upwards to capture a church spire distorts the sides of the building so that the walls lean inwards. This can sometimes be used for dramatic effect yet often makes the result seem unnatural. To correct this you can raise the point from which you take the photo but this is often impossible so some photographers use shift lenses or correct it in software such as Photoshop cc. No straight up shots of ceilings please.

If you are unsure about this brief then take a look at this article from "Discover Digital Photography" .....

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.
