I would like to see your best photos showing the dramatic effects of light painting by spinning wire wool. Wire wool spinning is a form of light painting where an implement such as a kitchen whisk is filled with fine wire wool, ignited, and spun around whilst turning on the spot, to create an orb. Images can be captured using a long exposure in any safe location where it is dark, such as tunnels, lakes and beaches.

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.
