Use a long exposure to take a photograph of some silky-smooth skies. All the clouds should be blurred together, but make sure that some of the picture is in focus, or it will look like you just took a blurry picture of the sky. For example, setup your camera on a tripod to feature a nice building, but make sure that you include a lot of the sky. Then, use a long exposure to blur the moving clouds and the blue sky together for the perfect shot.
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.
