Landscapes Without Sky

In association with Photocrowd

Open Judging Results

An interesting sub genre in the world of landscape photography - a deliberate tilt of the camera downwards, or a strong use of the crop tool, to remove any trace of sky from the image. It’s fun, it often works really well, and if you’ve got the right vantage point then it can focus the viewer more on the interplay of the various features of the landscape. Submitted images must have no sky showing at all, but water features in the landscape, and indeed seascapes, are totally fine.
