PAPA-PEPPER'S COMBINATION PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST - WEEK 27

2년 전

This was another excellent week!


It's been a lot of fun to see so many incredible entries each week, and not quite as much fun to have to choose winners. It is great to be able to see all of different animals and plants in your areas, in some wonderful combination photography! These entries are getting tougher and tougher to judge, but I am glad that you are all still enjoying the contest!

EXAMPLES

Before I get into who won the contest last week, I’ll once again review what I am looking for by featuring some combination photos of mine.

When I say “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. Here are a few examples.


Prairie Liard on Tree Branch


Speckled Kingsnake with Grass & Dried Oak Leaves


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.

Once you see the proof photos there should not be any doubt in your mind that I actually took the photos I shared above, because you can see me right there! The written proof works in the same way.

THE WINNERS!


There were so many excellent entries once again that I struggled to make the decisions, but in the end I had to, didn’t I? The Winner gets 50% of the liquid post payout from the Week 26 Post and the two runner ups each get 12.5% of the same.

THE WINNER


@natz04

4 SBD

FIRST RUNNER UP


@arul01

2 SBD

SECOND RUNNER UP


@otage

2 SBD


Thank you everyone for all of your efforts and entries! It has been a blessing to check them all out! Although 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. Sometimes people who don’t win get paid more for their post than if they had actually won!

ON TO WEEK 27!


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.

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 27TH WEEK OF THE CONTEST BEGIN!!!

As always, I'm @papa-pepper and here's the proof:

congratulations to all of them. These photographs are really cool.

I've asked you before @introvert-dime why you vote up all your own replies at basically full strength all the time, but the post itself at VERY low power (around 7% usually it seems) and here is the deal.

It is considered pretty scammy here to do that.

And you have been doing it a long time and it is time to address this poor behaviour.

Once in awhile is fine. Not all day, every day for weeks on end.

That is garbage behaviour here.

You seem to pick high profile posts, or users to do this on always and then vote your comments to the top increasing your visibility and you do this all day long, every day, all the time.

That is frowned upon here, not like you need someone to tell you this behaviour is scammy and poor.

I think I might start pasting this reply into your scammy replies to people, since your replies are all self-voted to the top for VISIBILITY. ALL THE TIME.

-- here is the proof just for today , the last few mins, on SteemD.com which I encourage everyone to check out on the blockchain.

This Reply posted April 3rd, 2018 to @introvert-dime, as I have done with them before..... without reply.

Good job guys.
it's classic to my eyes.
Having fun and keep on steemin'

Helloo papa-pepper! I'm so excited to finally participate in your contest. Today I was walking in a park and found this beautiful sloth and her baby sloth in a tree.

SAM_1460.jpg

But I remembered too late the proof photo and I managed to take this one when the (surprisingly quick) sloth was climbing the tree. It's the only one I could take before she left. I really hope it works :(

SAM_1461.jpg

Anyway, I'm really happy to participate. Thanks for such a fun contest. Greetings from Venezuela.

·

Wow. This is awesome.

It is right? Sloths are beautiful. Thanks!

Wow, some really impressive photos.

Interesting contest of unique and cool guy. Come on our friends enliven!!!

I love this competition!
I have to admit, the quantity and quality of submissions has increased so much! Its a little daunting to try and enter, but that is a pretty lame excuse. I need to make time and get some more shots...

·

You are right, that is a lame excuse! Next round is about to go up!

Fine...
sigh
Stomps off to go find camera, along with a plant and an animal, in an attempt to be less lame...
