This contest is open to subscribers (members on the Challenger, Pro and Master subscription tiers). However if you're not a paying subscriber you can still purchase entries for £2 (GBP) per image.
Photographing with pastel tones can either be achieved in the composition of the image itself, or in the post-processing stages where primary colours are de-saturated or muted. Generally, images with pastel shades are considerably softer and have gentler connotations than shots with bright and lively hues. Try pastels for yourself and find your own style.
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.
