Deranged Photography Contest - Flowers

in photography •  2 months ago

I was trying to come up with an idea for this week's theme and I went into @neoxian's server and started talking to the members of Tribe City of Neoxian and asked for some idea's of what they would like for a theme. Flowers is one of the themes that people seemed to like.

The good thing about flowers is that a lot of people enjoy taking pictures of them and they are accessible pretty much everywhere. There are some really cool flowers from all over the world and I am pretty excited to see the pictures that everyone comes up with.

I am looking forward to seeing what kind of images you all come up with. If you make a post about your entry, make sure to leave the post link in the comment section along with your picture. Also, make sure to use the creativecoin tag with your post.

How is the Deranged Photography Contest set up?


The contest is broken up into three different tiers. Each will have a different payout for the winners based on what tier you enter into. Here is a breakdown of the rewards based on the tiers:

1st50 CCC40 CCC30 CCC
2nd30 CCC25 CCC20 CCC
3rd20 CCC15 CCC10 CCC

Each contest will be open for submissions for 6 days after the post is made and then closes at 0100 UTC (1800 MST) on the 6th day.

This will give me and any guest judges time to judge the submissions and create the post announcing the winners.

How to enter


When you enter a photo in the competition, you will state what tier you want to be judged in and locked in for the month at that level.

For example if you enter a photo, you drop the photo in the comment section, state what level of photographer you are, and then give a description of the photograph.

That's pretty much it, drop a photo in the comment section of this post and state your tier. If you want to make a separate post for your entry as well, that is fine, but for your entry to be valid, your photo and tier must be in here in the comment section of this post. If you do make a separate post, be sure to use the #creativecoin tag.

Additional Notes


  • Only one submission per contest. Extra submissions will be ignored.

  • You can switch your tier ONE time per month, but only if you are moving up into a higher tier, for example if you are currently in the amateur tier, but you think that you have a photograph that you want to enter in the professional tier, you can state that you are changing your tier to professional. You will then be locked into the new tier for the remainder of the month. You are not able to move down to a lower tier, like going from amateur to the beginner tier.

  • If you do not state wish tier you want to be judged in for the month, I will leave a comment to remind you to do so, but if you don't respond, you will be assigned to a tier and locked in for that month.

  • Plagiarism will not be tolerated in any form. All submissions must be your own work. I will investigate every entry and if you are caught plagiarizing, not only will you be blacklisted from competing from any future contests, but you will be reported to @steemcleaners as well. It is not worth it to try and cheat, especially with the 3 tier set up where everyone has an equal shot of winning.


Thank you to the sponsors


This week, thanks to @rehan12, there will be an additional 500 NEOXAG added to the prize pool that will be distributed among the winners.

Thank you to everyone that will be participating. The contest wouldn't be around without your great submissions!

Rain-drenched plumeria resting on a leaf in the middle of the Costa Rican jungle...


tier: pro

Dandelion Universe

Magic of the micro world provided by some macro lens around. This is not the deepest one, but more or less affordable 100mm, but still L class :)
So this time we go a bit deeper into quite dried dandelion with those beautiful round patterns. They are just perfect to play with a final composition

Enjoy it!

Nice theme but so hard to choose just one. Anyway I'll enter with a picture of my favorite plant, for its beauty and for its strength to survive on the sand!

Pancratium maritimum, or sea daffodil usually grows on sandy beaches around the Mediterranean sea. This shot is from eastern Crete, Greece. I visit this beach every fall when they blossom, it is an irresistible spectacle I cannot bear to loose!


Here's my entry for this week. Tier: Amateur

Thanks @deadgrlsuppastar. Do you know what type of lilly it is? I don't know.

They kind of look like a starfighter lily...

First time entering here!! Been outta the steemit loop for sometime but I am back!!!

I am choosing professional classification.

I wrote a post about my photo..

I used my Nikon D3400. Photo settings are listed in the blog post. This is actually a rose from one of the bushes in my personal garden. The name of the type of rose is "Love" because love always has 2 sides of the story and the rose is colored dark pink on one side and white on the other side.

here is my entry
I am a beginner photographer
this photo was taken in the French Pyrenees, it is a wild flower that I found in a meadow whilst out walking, I have been unable to identify it unfortunately.

Excellent contest =)

Impressively ugly what you do... self vote in comments is not a good practice, to finish ruining it, the vote in this post is much lower than what you have given in your commentary.

Don’t come to my posts with your self voting of comments. No one wants to see that.

Here’s my entry. Amateur level.


hello, here is my entry.
Count me as an Amateur tier.


tech info: captured with canon 5d / Sigma 150mm tele, natural lightning, tripodless, no editing, shot as is.

Hello, Stranger!
If anything can get me back to posting
on Steemit it would be flowers!
Great theme, my friend!
Let me see if I have an image worthy of entering

A lot of really nice photos here... It's going to be hard to pick a winner this week. Good luck everyone.
Good to see you in #PYPT again.

Thanks for sharing on Pimp Your Post Thursday

Thank you once again for all you do in promoting quality on the blockchain and for your neat contests. I am a lover of flowers but, I will let others take pictures. I am a rotten photographer! I do appreciate looking at the other folks pictures though.

Have a great week!

Hi. My entry for the Beginner's category. A bouquet of flowers as a centerpiece.

I think I belong in the amateur category. I have made a post about my entry, Forget-Me-Nots:

Thank you for running this contest, which helped encourage me to pull myself together and post something.

My entry is for the Amateur tier.

Flowers are great subject to photograph. They are colourful and stay still!

ok... I'm not sure if this qualifies as flower photography... but I'd say it's definitely a creative approach to the theme :D

This is Poppy Puppet:

You can read more about how this super-hero was made here

I feel comfortable in the amateur tier.


Thanks for shouting out about this contest on #PYPT, @derangedvisions - I had no idea this was a thing! I like that you have different levels for beginners, amateurs, and professionals - great way to encourage new shutterbugs to participate. !tip steem
