Upvoted and resteemed. I have never had a problem with that ☺️

The honorary mentions are fabulous too. Congrats to all!

This look amazing very good photos nice job. image

@customnature's my favorite out of these!


OMG third place, I'm so happy.

Your picture deserves even more. The atmosphere of transition between the ramshackle window and prosperous city is amazing.

Very very nice e image you had there

Upvoted and resteemed ....

WOW the photography is amazing , Upvote your post :)
Follow you too, Keep posting this type of great post (y)

The next theme should be makeup

Β 7 years agoΒ (edited)Β 

This might seem ridiculous at first but then it becomes apparent that models usually wear makeup for photoshoots.

Shots of the products, the process and the end product could then qualify.

This is such a great contest. I do not know if my skill set matches. Since I am new, I missed the animal portrait contest. I would have participated with couple of my wildlife entries. Sighhhhhhhhhh...


I have posted a funny blog with Giraffe photos I have taken and a blog on tigers. It would be great if you can take a look when you have time. Your comments will enrich my Steemit experience. Thanks

Upvoted and restreemed!

@jamtaylor Suggestion for next theme:
black and white
Left alone (busy district with only max 1 person in the pic)

Another suggestion maybe create a new category for amateur, like only for photo taken with smartphone and perhaps no editing?

Honestly I want to participate but looking at the picture I know I don't have a change compared those professional photographer.

The competition is kind of tough! There are some real pros on here, but not all of them are professionals. It would be hard to distinguish who are considered amateurs and who are considered professionals.

I will try to come up with some things to include a wider range of users

Upvoted and resteemed ! Nice contest.

I imagewant to win this because i want to buy a nikon d800 i repost yor post

I'll check it out

Thanks, my compliments for your work in sthe steemit photographic community

Congratulations to all winners!

Upvoted and Resteemed! πŸ™ƒ

I have a photographer friend who I have been trying to get to join Steemit.


He hasn't yet. Probably doesn't see the benefit.

Is it okay if I post and enter his photos on his behalf and with his permission so that he can see the potential rewards?

That 10 SBD could also be used to convince him...

He would need to confirm that you have his permission on his instagram or something otherwise you may be accused/downvoted for plagiarism by the teams that check for that sort of thing.

Why not just send him a past SPC, see the winners, see the prizes :) See the rewards on Photography posts!

Β 7 years agoΒ (edited)Β 

I will post photos not anywhere else online.

I have also sent him this link and will wait too see if he joins.

Another option would be to create an account for him (with his email and mobile number) and post for him from that account. Once he is convinced he can take over.

Suggestion for the next theme: friendship.

Up voted n resteemed. Cheers!!!

Upvoted, resteemed.
