Swallows, house martins and swifts are wonderful to watch, but capturing images of them in flight is a challenge because of their sheer speed. For this contest, I would like to see your photos of any of these birds in the air, whether singly, in pairs or larger groups. Please no images that only include birds on the nest or perching, although perching birds may be included as part of your image, so long as birds in flight are the main point of interest. Both colour and black and white images are welcome, so long as you are capturing the grace and energy of swallows, swifts and house martins in flight. I hope you enjoy the challenge.
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.
