Land ho! This week, we’re asking you to go for the wide shot and capture stunning landscapes.
Landscapes are really about capturing the beauty of the world and making us pause and contemplate what a magnificent place this planet is to explore. No matter how familiar and commonplace the land around you may feel, it is beautiful in its own special way, and landscape photography is about capturing a slice of earth at the pinnacle of its glory.
Of course, there are a few general ways to push your shot over the top. Getting outside at either sunrise or sunset is sure to provide you with optimal golden lighting, as is having the patience to wait for clear skies… unless you think your landscape might be at its best under a sheet of rainfall (and sometimes it is!). Picking times of the day or week when people aren’t around is another safe bet for letting the land itself take center stage.
Whatever your approach, be sure you tag your shot with #wppLandscape to enter the contest!
About the Weekly Photo Project
This contest focuses on pure photography instead of edits. The subject of the photograph needs to take center stage. Submissions with minor edits (such as tuning contrast, brightness, etc, filters, and HDR) will be accepted. Submissions with clipart, intensive edits (such as mirroring, warping, drawing, shape masks, text, and stickers), or that do not include the requested subject, will be rejected.
How to Enter the Contest
Submit an entry by tagging it with #wppLandscape or by submitting it in the Contests section of the app. Submit a maximum of three photos between today and 11:59PM EST on Thursday, January 14th.
How to Vote
Voting begins on Friday, January 15th at midnight, immediately after the submission period ends, and closes at 11:59PM EST on Monday, January 18th. Vote in the Contests section by selecting your favorite entries. All entries in the Contests section will be displayed in random order. No new entries are permitted once voting begins.
The top 10 photos with the most votes are the contest winners and will be featured in app. The PicsArt team may also make selections in addition to these votes.
