Billed as the world's greatest photo game, GuruShots is an online platform that provides a fun, structured way to showcase your images while gaining global exposure for your work.
By competing in epic challenges against millions of photographers, you can get instant feedback from over three billion monthly votes and increase your ranking from Newbie to achieve the ultimate status (and bragging rights) of Guru.
GuruShots' challenges are voted on by the platform's Gurus and the wider community, and there’s a fresh challenge every day. Winners can receive prizes from GuruShots' sponsors such as Adorama, Kodak, Lowepro and Lensbaby.
Flowers are a natural subject for photography; full of color, texture, patterns, and personality. With The Power of Flowers Challenge, we wanted to see a bunch of flower photos that stood out amongst the rest!
The winning images didn't disappoint, and we enjoyed seeing everything from blooming buds to still life studies. We recommend scrolling through the images to see how all the top photographers interpreted the brief.
The 20 highest ranked images will be published in Practical Photoshop Magazine, and we're pleased to showcase these images below, along with the rest of the top featured photographs in the gallery that follows.
