In this contest I would like to see your colour photos of countryside or forests, which have had the colour saturation reduced to become more muted. Experiment and find an image that works well with this technique, maybe playing with texture to compensate for using low amounts of colour, or choose a minimalist scene; both work well with muted tones. Small man-made structures may be present but countryside or forest must be foremost in your composition. Images must retain colour throughout, but the saturation level of the colours should be low and muted. No people or animals in this contest please. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
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.
