PAPA-PEPPER'S COMBINATION PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST - WEEK 22

in contest •  2 years ago 

This has become so much fun for me!


It's been amazing to see so many incredible entries, and to see how much fun some of you are having! It is great to be able to see all of different animals and plants in your areas, in some combination photography!

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.


Painted Turtle with Leaves


Squirrel in a Tree


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 Twenty One Post and the two runner ups each get 12.5% of the same.

THE WINNER


@jasonmunapasee

12 SBD

FIRST RUNNER UP



@minene

6 SBD

SECOND RUNNER UP



@andyfishman

6 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 22!


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 22ND WEEK OF THE CONTEST BEGIN!!!

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

I wonder sometimes how people are able to click a selfie with the animals they shoot. Don't they just hop away or something? lol
Also, that's a pretty cool click of the snake.

It adds a certain level of fun difficulty to have to prove you took the shot. ;-)

That it does! How's Jawzercise going on btw?

Wish I had the opportunity of been close to bush or zoo, would have been really interesting to do this.
I really loved this contest. The pictures I sent above really aroused my curiosity and willingness to take shots with animals.
It will really be fun.
Congratulations to all the winners, really envy you guys, keep the good job up.

Some pretty nice entries and they do sure deserve to be the best !Nice of you to make this contest more amazing and the examples were indeed easy to understand !

I try to provide opportunities for others to create and interact.

Another cousin in back yard..jpg I could not get too close, this snapper came in the spring to lay eggs just behind our house...when we drove in, I sw what I thought was new rock on the bank..it was not a rock and could move very fast for such short legs.

Wao amazing photos.

Thankyou for the runner up award last week! Much appreciated and very pleased, if highly surprised! With the quality of the other entries I was not expecting it!

awesome pics!♥ I really Love the one with the black snake!♥

Snakes are awesome! My favorite is copperheads. :)

Copperheads are super cool, but best admired from a distance, I think! :D

I had to relocate this one from the road with a long stick. I made sure it went down the hill away from the road before I left!

FB_IMG_1518803259946.jpg

Thank you for saving his life!♥ many people would have just squished him...
And he looks awesome!♥

Snakes don't deserve to be killed. Everyone misunderstands them. I respect them. :)

I agree totally!!

i love the coloration and pattern on that one!

Thanks! They're a little bit different than the copperheads of Arkansas. We've got the northern copperheads with the dots along the entire length, and I believe osage copperheads lack the dots. Doesn't matter though, copperheads are my favorite venomous snake!

This s my second entry Sir @papa-pepper for this week.

Thanks for this interesting challenge. More power and God bless.

@papa-pepper i used my mobile camera, I don't have an expensive camera, so the first picture is a bit blur... i could have fixed it but my laptop broke... i made BRUNO (my dog) jump to new heights for this competition.

IMG_20180221_123539.jpgIMG_20180220_172108.jpg

Thanks for hosting, I love the idea of having a proof photo. Hoping to get a good shot this week.

Cool! Looking forward to it!

Those black racers can be quite mean sometimes! received_10154082522853890.jpeg

They can. One actually bit me in the face... but I was holding it in my mouth. (My hands were full...)

I got bit in the face by one too haha. I was opening a door with one hand and had the racer in my other hand. I held it too close to my face for a second and it bit me right between the eyes. In your mouth? Haven't done that yet.....

Loading...

What!?

Haha! I knew a truckie once whose name was Snake Charmer on the road. He was kissed by a python. He had bought it from a guy in a pub for a few dollars and it was sitting in a cardboard box next to him on his lounge. He was in his jocks (underpants), when his boss, the truck owner, dropped in to see him. His boss opened the box, saw the snake, grabbed the phone (this was back in the day phones had cords connecting the receiver to the phone) and whacked out at the snake. The snake grabbed the first thing it saw, which was Rhoddy's face! It locked onto his mouth and nose and he jumped up and was running around the room with his boss chasing him, whipping at him with the phone still. The door opened and one of the other drivers walked in, stopped, laughed and left again. Remember, Rhoddy was in his underwear. By the time he got out on the road the next night, the nickname was coined and every truckie on the East Coast was calling him it. And the story of the snake, the boss and the phone was all over the CB airwaves...

Hi community! This is my first time in this contest.
I found you thanks to @isaria and her Minnow University-

Here are some photos I took some years ago, so the proof photo is kind of relative. I really want to participate so I hope the proof could be enough.

Thanks anyway @papa-pepper for this initiative!

Regards!


One day I found this on the roof of my truck:


Here's the proof (I'll understand if this doesn't work)

cab3.jpg

lol - on a PEPPER!

That's some great shots out there by the participants, but your photo is the most daring @papa-pepper.

Congratulations my friend. Amazing photos from you again. How to take this photo because it seems so dangerous. While I am looking at it, I feel a bit scary.

This isn't a dangerous snake. It's nonvenomous. Black racer. They have quite a temper sometimes though!

Oh thank you for information I have no knowledge about snakes

Just remember, depending on where you live some snakes can be very dangerous.... So if you aren't familiar with them, keep some distance between you and the snake :) We have 3 venomous species where I live, and I can identify all of them very well. I don't like messing with those 3 if I don't have to. :)
