Тravel Photo Contest, Edition #5 - LANDMARKS

in contest •  5 months ago 

Hello, photography lovers!


I am happy to invite you all to participate in the #5 edition of the #TravelPhotoContest!

Let's have fun, share our visual memories from our voyages, enrich the STEEM community and earn some prizes along the way!

What is Travel Photography? It is that type of the Eight Art where we capture culture, people, landscapes, cityscapes, customs, events, history, etc. and we express our feeling of the time and the place we visited. We all love it, right? ;)

The topic of this edition is:


How to roll in? A.k.a. "rules":

  • Create a new post with your photo:
    • Use ONLY your own original work, photos will be checked and plagiarism will be flagged and reported
    • No NSFW images
    • Use the hashtag #travelphotocontest
    • Mention me in your post or title, for example: "This is my entry for the #TravelPhotoContest by @lightcaptured"
    • Adding your personal touch, a short story, the location, EXIF data, etc. is not obligatory but will definitely make your entry much more appealing and increase its chances of success ;)
    • If your post contains more than one image I will consider only the first one.
  • Comment under this post with the photo and the link to your entry post:
    • Only one entry per participant
    • Deadline is next Friday, 23:59 GMT
  • No Upvote, No Resteem, No Follow required. Of course, all the help and support you give is greatly appreciated and absolutely voluntary.

Prize Pool:

There will be 4 prizes: 3 ranked and 1 random!

Total # of SBI shares given: 10!

Prizes are 5 SBI for #1, 3 SBI for #2 and 1 SBI for #3
One randomly selected contest participant will receive 1 SBI. The draw is absolutely random so even one of the winners could get that additional SBI. Luck is luck as they say. :)

If you are not familiar with the SBI initiative, check out their blog @steembasicincome. Generally, it is upvotes on your posts for life, a great concept indeed!

The winners will be announced after the post payout and the prizes paid shortly after that.

Thank you, good luck and good day to everyone!

Not posting everyday at the moment but @dboontje reminded me of this so I created a post about the landmark that is playing a big role in my life at the moment during my daily walks.

Yeah I went MIA there for a bit... but I'm back. So much has changed, so many people and comps have gone which is really sad to see.

Looks very interesting, a great concept, thank you for your participation! 😏💐📸👍

Thank you for your entry and for sharing this intimate story with us!

Posted using Partiko Android

You're welcome. This is the first thing that comes to mind for "landmark" unfortunately.

Thank you and good luck!

Posted using Partiko Android

Thank you kindly! And thanks for hosting this competition!!

Thank you and good luck!

Can you please explain the topic in a few words?
Not sure I understand it 8)
May be I'm not alone 8))))

Of course :) According Cambridge dictionary, a landmark is "a building or place that is easily recognized, especially one that you can use to judge where you are". I think that's the perfect explanation and just to mention it isn't only about places that are famous. It's all about distinctive places ;) I hope that helps?

Sure, thanks!
When translating the name of the topic into Russian, a more vague concept was obtained. 8))

Да, "ориентир", это намного шире! :D
I understand and read Russian, but my writing and talking is very, very rusty....

Это здорово! Мой английский, к сожалению, тоже далек от совершенства 8)))

Я думаю он не так далек! 😉👍💯

The Calmness of the Dead Sea

The lowest point on Earth - The Dead Sea in Israel. Almost 400 meters below the sea level. Other side you see the coast of Jordan. Very interesting place with some low mountains around and with very special flora and fauna.

Enjoy the scenery :)
