Recently Digital Photographer Magazine ran a Summer Landscapes competition on Photocrowd. Entrants were encouraged to “make use of shadows” and “look for striking but natural colour contrasts”. I entered one of my recent images from Mam Tor in the Peak Disctrict and I’m delighted to say that I finished in the top 10%!, finishing 272nd place out of 3483 entries. That’s actually in the top 8% – but Photocrowd award a badge for being within the 10% bracket.
It’s really encouraging, and I feel like my landscape photography is definitely going in the right direction. My next goal is top 5%!
