In this contest I want you to try to convey in a black and white image how something feels to touch, whether rough, smooth, soft, bristly...... The subject can be any textured item you like, from soft silky fabric to coarse, rough rocks. You may wish to move in close for a more abstract view, or show a slightly wider scene of the subject in its setting. Either way, concentrate on the texture of your subject. Please remember, this contest is for black & white photos only, and 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!

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.
