Hi my dear Steemians!
As you know, I love photography and contests.
I love this kind of competition because you can discover the exceptional work of the Steemians and reward it. It's also another way to interact with new people who share the same passion.
By the way, I'm thinking about a new contest so stay connected my friends!
Today I'm a challenger and this is my entry for the #pinkflowerday contest by @petals! This is a wonderful idea of two amazing photographers @adrianobalan and @sardrt. To know more about this contest, click here! ^^.
I love to find this kind of wonderful gift on my way... I took this picture when I was walking around a village called Sant Martí d’Empúries.
Sant Martí d’Empúries is a neighborhood dependent on L'Escala, preserved as a medieval town. It was once a peninsula and received its first inhabitants in the 9th century BC. Three centuries later it established commercial relations with the Phoenicians, Punics and Phocaean Massaliotes, which marked the beginning of the negotiations which made Empúries one of the most important ports on the Mediterranean. Since that time Sant Martí d’Empúries has always been inhabited.
I am lucky to live near the Costa Brava, a Spanish region whose fauna and flora is very rich and diverse! I discover species that we have no or little in the north of France (which I am from). I take this opportunity to share them with you =)
There is a multitude of beautiful flowers to see and I wanted to capture his image to keep it in my mind and share it with you for this contest! Flowers put on color and love in our lives, we must take care of them!
It is not easy to photograph something alive like this flower that moves with the wind. But it's a good exercise to practice patience ^^. This photo was taken with my smartphone Samsung Galaxy S7 because at the moment I do not have professional equipment but it will come ...
Thank you @petals for organizing this kind of contest I find it really fun!
Have a nice day and Good Luck to all the challengers!
I NEED YOUR HELP STEEMIANS!
As promised I will organize a new contest soon! I would like this time to increase the earnings to have more rewarded winners. For example, a big price for the 1st one but also prices for the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th.
I saw the quality of the photos in my last contest and I must say that I was very frustrated about not being able to give more prizes.
I saw that there is sponsorship for other contests here in Steemit. I would like to understand the way these contests receive these funds.
That's why, I need your help my friends! Feel free to contact me on Steemit.chat if :
- You are actually sponsoring contests or want to help with me with next one.
- You know the way the sponsorships are made and can help me to understand it better.
- You know Steemians that usually bring funds to the contests prize pools.
I hope in a close future to be able to build big prize pools and bring these contest to the next step.
The goal is to reward quality work on this platform. Of course this time I will be more demanding on the rules to avoid the plagiarism of photos. I saw that it was done a lot in the competitions and I refuse to reward work that would not be original!
Thank you for your support and see you soon for a new contest !!!
