Open to photographers with a ranking outside the top 1000. There are two other 'Forests and woodlands' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.
Forest photography is one of the most challenging sub-groups of landscape photography, for the simple reason that the scene can so easily feel cluttered and steeped in unpredictable light. For best results, visit your scene either very early or very late, when the sun is low and the light not too hard. Woodlands are places of colours, contrasts and shadows; all things that can make a composition truly spectacular!
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.
