GuruShots: Winning images from the latest Golden Sunsets photo challenge

GuruShots - Golden Sunsets.

One of the greatest photo games you will ever play,  GuruShots is a super fun and competitive online platform (and app) that provides photographers with not only a place to showcase their images, but a chance to gain unmatched global exposure for their work and bag themselves some prizes and bragging rights in the process. 

There's no harm in a little friendly competition, and Gurushots will allow you to compete in epic challenges and daily battles against millions of photographers worldwide, and you can even become part of a team, too, and take on other groups together while sharing skills and connecting with other photographers. 

The idea of the game is to gradually increase your ranking from a Newbie to a Master, and then finally achieve the ultimate status of becoming a Guru. There are opportunities for your work to be exhibited in a physical gallery, published in magazines, and of course - be featured here on Digital Camera World too. 

With the latest Golden Sunsets Challenge, we wanted you to capture the magic of the golden hour and frame your subject in the perfect twilight moment. This challenge is a crowd favourite, and we want to see your best examples of the sky painted with hues ranging from orange, yellow, and golden to those pretty cloud formations in pink and purple. 

It's fascinating to see how other photographers might interpret a photo theme differently from you. The idea of the timed challenges is to enter images that not only fit the brief but are also unique and might give you enough of an edge to earn a Guru Pick from the creator of the challenge and votes from other players.

Winners can be in with the chance to receive prizes from GuruShots' sponsors such as Adorama, Kodak, Lowepro, and Lensbaby. The highest-ranked images from this challenge will be published in N-Photo Magazine, and we're pleased to showcase these images below, along with the rest of the top-featured photographs in the gallery that follows. Also, check out GuruShots’ newest app AI Art Master to compete against others with your own AI-generated images.
