This contest is open to all lovers of trees, forests and woodland. There are few environments which present greater opportunity (and challenge) to make beautiful images. Maybe you see the finer details and like to concentrate on certain aspects (leafs, moss covered trunks, foliage/plants, streams, micro habitats etc) or perhaps you like to take a step back and shoot lone trees and dense forests from afar. The key to this contest is to submit your best photos that capture the true essence/spirit/atmosphere of woodland. What stories/messages do these environments convey to you? Will you be the one who can share this through your image making? Be creative, spiritual, arty in your interpretation of this brief. Utilise colour, b&w, light, weather, seasons, technique etc to maximum effect. The winning image will be the one which connects the viewer to some deeper feeling or meaning. I will select and critique my two favourite images - which may differ from the crowd ratings! Good luck
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.
