Open Judging Results

This contest is open to photographers ranked between 1 and 250 in this week’s Leaderboard.

Twisting smoke and bellowing steam can bring wonderful atmosphere to a scene, create fascinating and ethereal forms for our compositions, and generally add a lovely random element to an image. For the avoidance of doubt, this ranked contest is not for images of fog, mist and clouds.

Ranked Contests are a weekly chance to compete alongside photographers of a similar Leaderboard ranking. Three contests with the same theme run at one time - for photographers ranked 1-250; 251-1000; and 1001+. They open Saturday morning after that week’s leaderboard has been updated, and are open for 5 days. They are Premium Contests, Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote, so are worth 3x the standard ranking points.

How it works

This contest is expert judged only with no rating by the crowd. You will be able to find out how you did when the judging or rating period has closed.
