Open Rating Results
This contest is created and judged by a member of the Photocrowd community. Want to run your own? Find out more >

Enter your best photos of a starburst effect created by the sunlight. A starburst effect is created when sunlight passes through or around an object near the photographer, such as a mountain or a tree. The more light that enters the camera the less chance of getting a starburst, so these are best captured around sunrise or sunset and to get the best starburst you need a minimal aperture opening on the camera. No artificial lighting of any type should be seen in the photos.

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.
