Macro abstracts

In association with Rocky Nook

Open Rating Results

Macro abstract photos tread a fine line between the artistic and the scientific; one that leaves the viewer thinking "What exactly am I looking at?". These photos have an intriguing and mysterious quality due to the fact that, instead of showing a complete scene, the photographer uses macro elements to create a pleasing (albeit confusing) whole. Mastering the art of shooting great abstract photos can be a challenge, but the results are more than worth it.

The winner will receive $50 store credit at Rocky Nook, and the crowd's favourite will take home a L.Type by Lumejet print.

How it works

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.
