Open Judging Results

This contest is open to photographers ranked between 1 and 250 in this week’s Leaderboard.

Our gardens often offer a wildlife haven that is easily overlooked, even when we live in a town or city. Photography offers us an opportunity to explore our world more closely, and there can be great joy in being confined to a small area in which one must find interesting imagery. It’s a discipline that teaches us to make the most of what we’ve got, and that often it is enough, The same can be said of looking for wildlife in one’s garden or local patch of green. It might require patience for a bird to land, or a fox to pass by, or a macro lens that makes the bugs a bit bigger, but wildlife gets everywhere, thank God, and we’ll be there to take interesting pictures of it.

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.
