What is the purpose of putting a vignette into a photo with Photoshop? When or why would you do it? The best photos are the ones with purpose that are composed intelligently. Vignettes were originally undesired effects of camera settings, but these days they can be applied to photos for artistic purposes. What is the purpose of yours? Show us an effective vignette in your submissions for a chance to win.

To find out more on how to use vignettes to enhance your photos, and when they should be used, start by reading this Light Stalking post.

Winners and highly commended finishers will gain LumeJet prizes worth £30, as well as exposure across Photocrowd.

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.
