The 4th DLR Photography Competition – Urban Landscape

Today we’re launching the 4th Digital Lightroom Photography Competition.  The theme this time is Urban Landscape.

We will be posting articles in the coming weeks about the urban landscape and how best to capture it suffice to say for now that, urban landscape photography

  •  Describes a city or a town in some way.
  •  It attempts to capture in image form, our experience of city or town life.
  •  The urban landscape concentrates on structures and architecture rather than people although urban landscape photographs often contain people.
  •  The photographs may deal with the inner urban landscape, the closer view or may take a much broader view.

This is a very exciting theme and we’re very much looking forward to your entries. To get a real feel for the theme, type Urban Landscape into Google images.  You’ll find lots of ideas.

We once more have some fabulous prizes on offer from Topaz labs including copies of Topaz Clarity, a new product in the line-up of plugins.  Topaz will be joining us a guest judge this time and we’re very much hoping that entrants will make use of this new plugin when processing their entries.

Topaz clarity is particularly well suited for use in processing urban landscape type photographs so if you’d like to get a taste of what Clarity can do for your entries in this competition, just click on the link  for a fully functional 30 day trial.  Having tested this plugin extensively I can say that Clarity adds a great deal to your processing workflow.  It is very effective in micro managing contrast and will help make your photographs ‘pop’ by greatly improving image definition.

Topaz Clarity works with a variety of hosts including Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.  You can get trials of both of these programs here if you do not have them.

Please let us know if you’ve used Clarity to process your entries and if so, tell us a little bit about your experience using the plugin.

Closing date for the competition is Friday, 28th June.

All entries should be emailed to and should include your name, a title for your image and your website/blog address.

It’s important to include ‘Photo Submission’ in the subject field of your email.

Please read the rules page carefully before submitting your entry.
