Lensball photography involves using a crystal ball which acts as both an external wide-angle lens and a photographic tool that inverts images inside the lensball due to the magic of refraction which occurs. This transpires due to the lensball's spherical shape and the bending of light when hitting the object of denser mass, in this case the crystal. The wide-angle and refraction can result in stunning creative photography in a variety of areas whether it be landscape or street photography.

How it worls
Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.
Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
