🎓 @quantumg's fourth course is now available in the LMAC School! Enroll today and learn how to add shadows to your collages.

Welcome to Round 54 of Let's Make a Collage!

I have no eclipse in my photo collection but I thought a sunset would also be quite suitable for the first LMAC challenge broadcasted from the HF24 side of the Hive. What do you think? Hope you all had a good transition into our new home. Let's do what we can to show it to the world!

The LMAC keeps growing, now counting 454 LMACians! 29 original collages were submitted to the last challenge in which a total of 120 HIVE was distributed to all winners!

Thank you all for supporting the LMAC and thus the Hive! Whether you are a collage contributor, LMAC trail member or stakeholder who supports us with your upvotes, the LMAC's success is owed to every single one of you!

Before we get the next round started, the usual reminders:

  • Please make sure to set the LMAC community (-> account @hive-174695) as 20% beneficiary in your entry posts. Only then you are eligible to receive the community bonus if you make it to the TOP 10! A growing LMAC community will thank you for it! 100% of the proceeds will be added to each round's prize pool.
  • ❗️If you contribute 5 times to the community bonus during a three month period, you become eligible to receive the new LMAC Contributor Badge for prize pool supporters. This badge comes with its own benefits as described 👉 here.
  • A curation trail has been registered on hive.vote to further support all valid submissions to the LMAC. By following this trail you will support all LMAC contributors but also receive a decent boost on your curation rewards by frontrunning a vote by me (@shaka). Find all details about the LMAC curation trail 👉 here.
  • Entries which fail to unambiguously document that all collage elements used are free of any copyright protection can not be shortlisted! It's up to the contributor to proactively provide all sources in their entry posts.
  • All entries need to be posted to the LMAC community to be considered for the challenge. To help increase the visibility of our community please avoid cross-posting.

And now, let's kick-off Round 54 of Let's Make a Collage!

Hi @shaka. I have a post ready to go but it won't load on Peakd. And Hive will only accept letsmakeacollage as beneficiary. I don't want the rewards to go to a deadend account. I've got both windows open, ready to post, if you will kindly instruct me on what to do. Meanwhile, here's the collage--just because I'm impatient to put it up:). Thank you!

Edit: I'm posting on Hive and naming you as beneficiary. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Good luck to all. As always is the case, amazing collages!

Dear @agmoore, sorry for getting back to you so late. I got swamped with RL obligations and thus wasn't able to engage with the community as I had wished. Hope things will clear up a bit in the next weeks.

Everything has been pretty bumpy since the HF no matter the frontend. It seems most were able to set the community account as beneficiary though and I therefore speculate that you would need to switch nodes. For me the api.hive.blog appears to work fine. At least for now.


@agmoore switching nodes is the best try

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to cautiously look into that.

Hi @shaka,
Thank you very much for answering. I know how busy you are. I looked at the node settings (never knew there were node settings!) and imagine I will have to set the same nodes for Hive blog and Peakd so these will be in sync. Maybe I'll just wait a few days until things are working better and then I won't have to tinker with settings. It's kind of intimidating. Afraid I'll do something to mess up the navigability of the site.

Meanwhile, Hardfork or not, you managed to get another LMAC round underway. Good going! Creative sparks were flying on the blockchain all weekend :)

Your enthusiastic lmacian,

I look great, @agmoore. I really like the games of representation within representation. They make us rethink reality and its planes. Good luck!

You are very kind. Lift my spirits with your generous words :)

Hi @shaka, I just read @muelli's blog and concur 100%: the madness around us in corona land has at least one sure fire tonic: #LMAC. Imagining a collage, tweaking a design, discarding mistakes--these are all peaceful, restful exercises. What a welcome departure from those things we can't control. I'm still at it. Will not let the collage go until tomorrow. And I will enjoy every tortuous moment of the process.

It's truly relaxing to think about making a collage and doing it!
In these days I have felt exhausted but art (reading and drawing) has helped me balance out the stress. I still can't write stories because I'm a little blocked. I have ideas but haven't been able to develop them. So... Long live Collage!

Long live anything that gives me the courage to have an art adventure. Very grateful for #LMAC, and the people I 'meet' here :)

Hello. I was wondering if anyone felt the same as I did of late. I haven't written a story in over 2 weeks. And I haven't really been able really to accomplish anything this week. I still get error messages when trying to vote/comment.

I published my LMAC over 20 minutes ago. It flew straight into the Twilight Zone. Couldn't see in on my Blog page or All Posts page. I see others voting on it. I'm not even going to get upset. It's par for the course this week. I'm going to switch to still a different node and see if that helps. Be back later if it shows up so I can enter it here.

Hope things get better for you the coming week.

Its showing and it’s in so you are safe and in time I guess

I've been at it for hours. Finally I posted on Hive and that worked. We'll see if it keeps. This is a transition phase. Frustrating, but it will pass and we'll get back to 'normal' again. Can't imagine how hard it is to get all the nodes (whatever they are) working in sync. Going to look at your 'ghost' blog now and see if it actually exists :)

It's on Hive, for me anyway. Very, very nice :)

*Dabbing off the sweat*
Aaahh, just in time!!! I dawdled a little this time. :-D

Lovely landscape! Only the Smurf family was missing! ;-)

Why do I have to think about Hobbits? 😎
Great work.

What a beautiful job, @Quantumg! All that smooth and warm light creating a comfortable climate. I'd love to be able to visit that story and watch from the window of the little house/fungus. And that magnificent crow! Beautiful!

I loved that touch of abandoned paintings! Good Imagination!👍

Thank you, @mballesteros! I'm very excited because I had to fight very hard with the program, because I didn't understand anything... Until I followed the wonderful classes of @Quantumg. Thank you for your kind words.

The sun transformed into a flower

I'm glad you liked the collage. greetings and good luck in this round.

I really liked this collage, @elcorrecamino. Everything in it transmits a beautiful energy. The lion, of course, reminds me of Aslan. The sun transformed into a flower is a very remarkable achievement. The colouring is beautiful. It would make a perfect illustration for a story.

What a fun week it is with the serene provided picture
Here is my entry



Thanks and rock one community


Are you swallowing the sun? Oh!
I like very much the composition and the message that the elements that occupy the whole space of the image build. It is strange, something violent and very singular. And, finally, the aliens appear! Wow!

What a great compliment thank you I hope it’s enough

My participation...

My dearest winter!
