For this contest I would like to see your photos taken using the zoom burst effect. This is a technique performed by zooming a telephoto lens in or out while using a longer exposure, so the photo blurs from the centre of the object, as though it is moving towards or away from the camera. Any subject may be used and the photo may be in colour or black and white. I look forward to seeing your submissions.

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.
