In this contest, I am looking for your best moon rising (or moon setting) images with some foreground interest (rather than just a moon in the sky on its own).

For those unsure or unfamiliar with this area, a hint would be to use a telefoto lens and pick an item of interest a bit of a distance away from you. Zoom in on that item, and with the moon rising alongside or behind, you can then get a compressed down photo where the moon appears larger as its taking up more of the photo. You can also use software like photopills to plan in advance aligning the moon with your chosen scene. Good luck.

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.
