The brief is simple, each image submitted must contain one or more church or cathedral windows.
The window or windows do not have to be the main focal point of the image, indeed what I would like to see are creative images which include other features of the church in addition to the windows. The windows may be relatively small or large in comparison to these other features but the image when viewed as a whole should be balanced and compositionally pleasing.
What I specifically do not want to see are straight record shots of stained glass windows where the window fills the frame and the photographer includes no creative input of his own. I shall be ignoring such images during my judging process and I would please ask the crowd to do so too.
Colour or black and white, HDR or not, anything goes and creativity will be well rewarded.
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.
