Harnessing light is easily one of the most difficult aspects of photography. How you manage and direct natural light will dramatically change the mood of your photos, and can be one of the biggest obstacles to its overall appeal. You don’t need expensive equipment to fine tine natural light, but doing some prior research on techniques is definitely advised.
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.
