The use of shadows and/or silhouettes in photography can be a subtle but powerful way to convey drama and mood. They have the power to capture the viewer's imagination and draw them into the story that your shots are telling. Have a good think about the effects of lighting and light placement before you shoot your winning shot...!

The winners of the crowd-vote and the expert-judges category will be offered a plug-in of their choice from the amazing Topaz Labs collection.
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.
