Open Rating Results

Open to photographers with a ranking outside the top 1000. There are two other 'Panning' contests currently open to other ranks. Take a look at the leaderboard for more information on Photocrowd rankings.

Panning is the technique of using a deliberately slow shutter speed while tracking a moving subject. Ideally, the subject should appear sharp while the background has a slight blur. Panning gives great results and doesn’t take too much practice! The secret is balance – too fast and the subject won't have moved far enough to give you any blurred background; too slow and it'll be impossible to accurately track the subject the whole time, resulting in a fuzzy subject.

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.
