PAPA-PEPPER'S COMBINATION PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST - WEEK 33

in contest •  4 months ago

Another week done and some more incredible entries from around the world!


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. As you can tell from my examples, it was the animals that I was focusing on, as "grass" is not that exciting of a plant... Here are a few examples.


Speckled Kingsnakes on Tree


Rabbit with Grass


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!


Before I share who won, let me please mention that this was an extremely hard week to judge. You guys are making some amazing entries here! The Winner gets 50% of the liquid post payout from the Week 32 Post and the two runner ups each get 25% of the same.

THE WINNER

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 33!


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 33RD WEEK OF THE CONTEST BEGIN!!!

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

Congrats to all winners.
Snakes are looking good in pics.
Keep on steemin'

Congratulations to the winners.


Can't believe how you can be so calm holding a snake.

I mean, I love snakes, but I'm not brave enough to be even close to them.

I have utmost veneration for snakes (not sure if it's the right word, but basically it's admiration, but fear and respect for it).

·

I have a healthy respect for them too. Many are not very dangerous at all, so I really do not have to be very brave.

·
·

I know some are not dangerous at all, but when I see a snake in person, I believe that black mamba is in front of me and that I should run.

Survival instinct, I guess.

Lol - I understand.

Your contest is very interesting @papa-pepper and It's my entry "Metallic caterpillar with branched spines that I get in wild plants in the yard of the house"

Everyone has done an extraordinary job on these photos. Everyone is a first place winner in my books!

I love zooming in on the little creatures, so when I had a lovely visit to a local bluebell wood I spent a while trying to capture this little spider living in the blue.

I am not sure what this is. My first encounter with this worm. I am told it becomes a butterfly. Possibly a moth. It is over 3 inches long and very bulky. I hope it attaches itself right there, then I can document the metamorphosis.

Thank you. God bless!

Those are great shots of the snakes! Aren't any venomous? Walking back from the beach yesterday with dad @quailbreeder and brother @craigcryptoking we came scarily close to a night adder. That is one dangerous snake! My dad almost stepped on it. I flew over it with the baby and my brother wanted to head back for "a photo for the @papa-pepper contest"! Sorry but ultimately a bite wasn't worth the possibility of some SBD!
Here's my entry taken before we came on holiday to Dad. Beautiful sun birds on the blooming aloe. I loved the proof shot, it was of my cat Pepper lying sneakily underneath the sunbird - no wonder it flew away so suddenly!

I'm so happy you have kept up Combination Photography, because I have continued to see photo opportunities around the farm through the lens of this contest, even if I don't post every week. Since I am looking through a hard-drive of pictures now, and found a really cool one, I thought I would stop in and share with everybody!

ComboFrog.jpg
You'll notice that Mr. Frog uses the grass and very numerous organic debris to stay up and off the ground.

And here's the proof! (I'm the bearded fellow in a red shirt)

He and his kind can be very hard to see, protected as they are by very vigorous foliage.
