In this contest I want you to try to convey in an image how something feels to touch, whether rough, smooth, soft, prickly ...... You may wish to move in close for a more abstract view, or show a wider scene. Either way, concentrate on the texture of your subject. Images could work equally well in black & white or colour, but please remember, in this contest you need to concentrate on physical textures, not visual patterns. Through your use of tones, focusing, and control of shadows and light, enter an image which leaves me in no doubt how the subject would feel, if only I could reach in and touch!
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.
