Most cameras these days can do High Dynamic Range (HDR) or allow you to bracket exposures to later blend in software. What I am looking for in this contest is well composed HDR Nature/Landscape shots. Use HDR to pull detail out of the shadows and restore bright blown out areas. The key here is natural - no need to set your sliders to 110%.
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.
