Hello, CRPhotography members! :eager:
This month, the photography category
that will be spotlighted this month will be: Urban and Rural.
If you entered May's contest, be aware that the winners will
be announced in the middle of the month!


:heart: What's the theme?

  • Urban And Rural, as in DeviantArt's photo category.  Urban and Rural photography covers different subcategories on DA and allow any of us to contemplate our environment, whatever the place on Earth... If you'll have to cherish one particular category of photography, I guess Urban and Rural would be the one you choose due to the fact it may allow you to travel and have the greatest trips possible by contemplating the richness of our world.
    the different categories you can apply for in this contest for this category are:
    :bulletblue: City Life
    :bulletblue: City Scapes & Skylines
    :bulletblue: Country Life
    :bulletblue: Gardens, Parks & Cemeteries
    :bulletblue: Industrial
    :bulletblue: Other
    :bulletblue: Urbex
  • Some examples are:

Gardens by the Bay by eduardj Perspective by Deadcam Love Tunnel by MarsiaMS


  • You can check out these useful journals with tips to introduce you to this category and some beautiful examples throughout excellent curated journals:
  Urban and Rural PhotographyGalleries month
The Urban and Rural Photography Gallery here on DeviantART has several sub-categories which can be explored in order to promote and expose your work in the best way. There's a folder within the projecteducate gallery that already includes some Urban and Rural Photography information and we hope to bring you another PE week towards the end of the year focused entirely on this area. For more info visit this folder.
City Life
Photographs of specific urban and rural areas, life in those areas, skylines and urban exploration.

Cityscapes and Skylines
Photographs of skylines and (parts of) neighborhoods, such as skylines, city blocks and aerial photos of urban areas.

  Urban and Rural Interview - PunkdivaThis interview is with daniellepowell82
daniellepowell82 is the founder of Stand-Out-Shots and has some beautiful urban and rural shots in her gallery.
Firstly, thank you for agreeing to take part in the interview!
:bulletpurple: I'd like to start by finding out a bit more of your part in Urban & Rural photography. Within Urban and Rural, there are sub galleries consisting of City Life, Country Life and so on. Which do you prefer and why?
Cityscapes and skylines- I like this type because I love to see the city lights reflecting on the water I love how you can go to the same spot on different occasions and take the same shot but due to lighting and clouds you can get a whole different photograph. I never thought how beautiful buildings at night time could be.

:bulletpurple: What first prompted you to explore Urban and Rural photography?
I got into Urban and rural photography due to a friend who invited me o

I thought I entered an image into Urban and Country contest and saw it in the gallery after that but now it isn't there...so I'm wondering if I've been dropped out for some reason or if I should resubmit it?
