As we all know there are plenty ongoing contests across the Steemit platform. In my beginning days (exactly two months ago :)) I found that the photo contests are a good way to say Hello, I am also here! and explore and feel the environment. In meanwhile some of contests I stopped entering, in others I enjoy almost every week. The one I really like is Shadow Photo Contest hosted by dear @melinda010100.
Next image is my entry for the last round - Selfie Shadows, its 46 week! The fact I absolutely like about this contest is that usually I don't have an appropriate photo as the answer to the week-theme but it is always easy for homemade.
Next two images are my works for some previous calls that I truly enjoyed making. Make all the color pencils to stand up at the same moment was tough work :D Also any kind of photo editing is allowed, so free your imagination and play.
Hope that sharing this info will bring more Steemians to contest, both entering and supporting.
Finally, I will add an anecdote for which I have no @melinda010100 consent but consider it is OK to let in the air. Every start is spiced up with beginners mistakes and my first Steemit days weren't any exception. Very fast I ran out of RC (Resource Credits) and recharging went too slow for me. At some point I needed to wait more than day for one comment, and again another day for second one. You must agree - really annoying! :D I was about to lose interest for the platform and then I've received a SP delegation more than enough to overcome my struggles.
I believe that all of us has its own story from beginning and this was about my Steemit angel.
