Symmetrical subjects offer many opportunities for the photographer. They have an intrinsic intrigue all of their own, especially when they occur in nature, such as the wings of a butterfly. They also offer an interesting compositional challenge - they can be shot ’straight on’ so as to emphasise their symmetricality, or at a more acute and playful angle that may require a little more skill to pull off successfully.
This Premium Contest is worth 1.5x the standard points towards your Leaderboard ranking. It’s Expert-judged AND crowd-rated, with your score from each combined. Find out more about ranking points here. Our Experts are some of the world’s finest photographers, who select the best images, and provide valuable feedback to help you improve.
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.
