Hello fellow Steemians!
It is my great pleasure to announce the winner of 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge - North American Friday. I would like to say huge thank you to all the participants for their great entries. The number of entries yesterday was very good with many high-quality images so it was extremely hard to decide on the winning one. I encourage you to check the entries as they really were all stunning.
You can see all entries and participants in this post: 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge - North American Friday week #42 - the absolute winner takes 200 SBD!
Please give a huge shout out to the best ten competitors for taking part in the challenge and sharing their photos and experience with all of us here on Steemit:
It would be great if you can visit their blogs and appreciate their awesome photography skills with some upvotes.
However, the winner is only one and that is for me picture posted by @phortun with the following entry:
Panoramic b&w view of southern Manhattan from the Brooklyn Bridge. Started in 1869 and completed fourteen years later in 1883, the Brooklyn Bridge is one of the most iconic landmarks of New York City, connecting the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn while spanning the East River.
What a great contribution from @phortun to the photo challenge! I have visited @phortun blog and upvoted his post called: Street Photography: beautiful historic buildings on the Masaryk Embankment, Prague. @phortun amazing entry from New York is qualifying for the weekly challenge where it will be competing against the previous and upcoming winners of the week:
@jpphotography Asian Sunday entry:
Railay Beach Viewpoint, Thailand. Located near Krabi, Railay Beach is a popular spot for rock climbing. I do some rock climbing myself, but in Railay I went on a different kind of climbing trip when I scrambled up a small trail to reach this beautiful viewpoint - covered in mud.
@bluebottlefilms Australian Monday entry:
It's whale season again across the south east coast of Australia. Keep an eye out for those spurts, especially around dawn. The low position of the sun makes the spurts glimmer on the surface during this time, making them much easier to see.
@mata.lensa Tuesday of Antarctica and World´s Oceans entry:
The sea that surrounds the world has become an important role for all the living beings that exist on earth. Even the sea counted larger than the mainland. And below is the ocean located at the western tip of the island of Sumatra (Aceh). This area is also a silent witness to the Tsunami disaster in 2004 that destroyed Aceh and is now the best destination point in "Banda Aceh".
@extremejogging African Wednesday entry:
Hi Tomas. Long time now see. While I'm sitting here in the beautiful Victoria, Canada, I saw your post and missed my local trails! Here Deryck and I am exploring a single track high up in the Jonkershoek Valley, near Stellenbosch in South Africa. During spring time the typical plants of this area, called "fynbos", grow beautiful little flowers, as far as the eye can see! Keep exploring...
@davedavis91 European Thursday entry:
Rome, Italy. A place filled with History, cultural heritage and great motives for cityscape photography. The Colosseum, probably the most famous of all the sights. Listening to all the incredible things that have happened inside the arena, I tried to capture the entire Building with the ultra wide angle. Not that easy. Did you know that they flooded the entire place to have dramatic sea-fights with ships and co. Show-business 2000 something years ago ;) (Nikon D5300 Sigma 8-16mm)
The winner of the weekly challenge will be selected by you based on the dollar value of this post and then entered to a monthly and possibly yearly challenge on the way to win the price of 200 SBD in total. You can give @phortun your support by upvoting this winner announcement post.
My next challenge is coming shortly: South American Saturday. Get your pictures ready! :)
