COMBINATION PHOTOGRAPHY WEEK 16 - YOUR CHANCE TO WIN SBD! - OVER $700 USD IN PRIZES LAST ROUND!

2년 전

Let Week 16 begin!


So, @papa-pepper enjoys plants and animals from all around the world, so what better photography contest could I run than one where you get to photograph plants and animals together, in some combination photography?

EXAMPLES

Before I get into who won the contest last week, I’ll quickly share with you again what I am looking for by featuring some photos of mine. In the cover photo, I combined a box turtle with some dried oak leaves, with the turtle being the animal and the leaves being the plant. Both a plant and an animal were in the photo, hence the combination.

Please understand, by combination photography I mean that you should combine two elements; plants and animals. At least one plant and at least one animal should be featured in your photo to have it qualify. If your photo does not qualify, or if you do not provide the proof, you will not qualify. Here are two examples.


Black Rat Snake with mixed vegetation

Cricket Frog with mixed vegetation


Besides simply providing the images, I also require that those entering this contest provide a proof photo as well. Two main versions of proof photos exist. One kind features the same combination of plants & animals with a written paper in the photo with your username, the date, contest name, etc. to prove that you took the photo for the contest.

The other type of proof is just a selfie with the animal and plant. Here are my examples for the photos featured above.

Based on the proof photos there should be no doubt in your mind that I actually took the photos I shared above.

WEEK 15 WINNERS!


This was a big week! The post from Week 15 paid out at over 78 SBD, which are still trading at over $9 USD each on Bittrex, so the prize pool is technically over $700 USD this week! How cool is that?

Choosing the winners is always tough for me, especially with some much money on the line, but I have finally made my decisions. The Winner gets 50% of the liquid post payout from the Week Fifteen Post and the two runner ups each get 12.5% of the same, which is pretty good considering the high SBD value right now.

THE WINNER


@andesign

39.206 SBD (just over $350 in USD right now!!!)

FIRST RUNNER UP


@okylxx

19.603 SBD (just over $175 in USD right now!!!)

SECOND RUNNER UP


@soymanu

19.603 SBD (just over $175 in USD right now!!!)


There were so many excellent entries once again. I love that this contest allows me to catch a glimpse of your local flora and fauna. Also, though the official way to enter this contest is by including your entry photo and the proof photo in a reply to my post, I strongly encourage others to make an actual post featuring their entry as well.

Even if you do not win the contest, you could still get something for your effort if you turn it into a post as well. @Matthewtiii once hit the jackpot on a post about his contest entry. His post paid out at over $200 total while he has trying to win 5 STEEM, LOL! Link here.

ON TO WEEK 16!


By now you should have a clue about what this contest is and how to enter, but here are the official rules just to make sure. Enjoy, and I am looking forward to seeing what you can come up with.

HERE ARE THE OFFICIAL RULES:

  • Photo entries must be placed in the reply/comment section of this post.
  • Submissions may also be made into posts, but it is not necessary.
  • A proof photo will also be required. This can be in the form of a selfie with the subjects from the photos or in the form of your username written on a piece of paper in a photo, etc. Basically, you must prove the originality of your work. Therefore, your entry comment should include two photos.
  • Users have between now and the time of the post payout to enter this contest.
  • I will personally select one winner to award half of the liquid SBD payout from this post to and two runner ups who will each get 25% of the same.
  • Enter as many times as you like!
  • Depending on the interest in this contest, I may have it be ongoing.
  • By entering you are giving me full permission to use your entries as I see fit.

IMPORTANT: Please make sure to include both your entry photo and proof photo in your reply.

TL;DR

If you reply to this post with a photo of a plant and animal together and include a proof photo before the post payout from this post, you may win a portion of the post payout.

LET THE 16TH WEEK OF THE CONTEST BEGIN!!!

LOL! - Too funny!

Wow the price pool is very high the was you had post your photos is just awesome. and I do congratulation to all the Winner.

A good contest!

·

I think so too!

·

Oh look, the snake took a photo with a genuine endangered animal from the human species, so it could make it's entry to the competition ! ;)

Joking aside, this is beautiful. Does the snake have a name ?

·

Wow nice pic @diay28.

Too bad, I cannot submit the pictures. I gave the racoon my drivers licence and told it to hold it up for the photo, but then it just ran off with it. Now I have to walk home. :)

@papa-pepper , I'd like to congratulate you because you're the true champion. Thru this concept of yours, you are not just inspiring us but helping other people to earn. We just don't know how much it helps to their families, it could save lives or save them fro their financial problems Continue your good work!

I shot this photo of a juvenile deer browsing on some trees back in 2009 at the Maine Wildlife Park in Gray, ME. Unfortunately I don't have any shots of me with the photo since it was taken long before this contest, but if you look at the link to the photo you will see that the domain name is photography.barriault.net, and my username here on Steemit is @barriault. You'll also notice that the photograph has a watermark with my name, barriault, in it. And just to prove I own the website, here is a recent photo of me I recently uploaded to the site.

Very fantastic.. I resteem this post ! Thanks my friend :)

Nature is everything. it is the most beautiful natural thing of all. The most beautiful colors are the colors of nature. The greenery of the forests is the blue of the sea ... These are the most harmonious and meaningful colors. I think this is the most beautiful photo I think of nature photographs ... If this photo is accompanied by the animals living in the nature, the result is spectacular. I think it's a very nice sharing. thank you for showing us these beautiful things 👍👍 @papa-pepper

·

Thank you. I like it because it gives everyone a chance to share some of their local flora and fauna.

Love it 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 Resteemed

Incredible work by these Steemians! Congratulations!
and Merry Christmas to all!

·

They sure did a great job, and there were many more to choose from.

I love the example you have there. I'd better head out and start taking shots for this awesome contest.

A few context pictures and story first:

This is Kay, named after my deceased grand-father.
you'd have to know our family history, and a children's show with a frog named Kay, to understand, but suffice to say this is a compliment to my grand-father's memory that we name a toad after him XP

He's been visiting our garden for at least 3-4 years now, every summer, and we always, somehow, manage to catch a sight of him, though only once or twice have we managed to take a picture of him.

Here's an old photo with greenery and Kay, to satisfy the Combination photography.

And here's a pic from Facebook of me and Kay !

It is so sad there wasn't the slightest bit of greenery in the above photo... it'd rock as the official entry, while the actual combination photo isn't nearly as good looking XD

Great contest, thank you! I am new and just entering some:)
I am wondering, since it is winter here if I can still enter? The plants would just be in winter mode in the pic, not much greenery though right now!

wow a very savage animal i am very afraid of snakes,

Proof of Original Content

I know, they're grown in the proof photo, but for more proof I posted an article with some more pictures showing them growing up here, Duck! Duck! Duck!

How about plant, animal, and proof all in one photo? This is one of my barred rocks who needed some attention this afternoon while I was out collecting eggs. I think the tallow trees in the background add a nice touch.

a very fun contest, but this is a bit dangerous comrades,
my friend is careful little with the snake.
I think look very dangerous snake @papa-pepper.

I haven't played along in quite a while, but I'm trying to get myself motivated again.

Such fantastic photos from everyone. Thanks again for running this contest @papa-pepper!
I'm on hols in the Scottish Highlands so thought I'd visit the shore for a seaweed combo. In truth I was looking for eels but alas they are much much rarer than when I was a child searching under the seaweed at low tide. Found this little crab though :)

Also can't resist sharing this little robin with you all. Taken through the window on a cold, rainy morning. Isn't it gorgeous all puffed up against the cold? Its colours were showing beautifully.

......and I couldn't zoom in on the tree outside and focus on the bit of paper so I'm hoping the green lichen is clear enough to show it's the same tree!

How to proof it? This is my old photo. Could I copy a selfie on it? I think that's not a good idea.
