Shadow Photo Contest Round 36 - Hand Shadows No 2

in shadowphoto •  last year  (edited)

Shadow Photo Contest

Round 35- Musical Instrument Shadows is now closed. Winners will be announced and payouts made within the next 24 hours.

Round 36 begins now!

Hand Shadows No. 2

This week's contest will pay out 5 Steem in prizes.

There has been a request this week to do a repeat of Hand Shadows and since it has been awhile since we last did hands I thought it would be fun! (Please don't enter a photo that you have entered into a previous shadow contest)

Photo credit @nolasco

@nolasco provided her "Scissorhands" photo from the last hand shadow contest as our sample photo along with a suggestion that you can look up HAND SHADOWGRAPHY for some creative ideas.

I will be doing the judging this week and I am setting a @steem-bounty again this week, although I'm still not clear how that works! Let me know if you understand it, otherwise we'll all figure it out together. If you entered last week's contest check your wallet and see if you got a bounty payout. Let me know!

To get your photo to show up in the comments, you have to post the link to your post AND the link to your photo. It makes it easier to remember what you posted if we don't have to keep clicking the link and it gets more attention for your photo.
If you have an idea for a topic and would like to be a guest judge, let me know!

Here Are The Rules For The Contest.

The Prize will be at least 5 Steem, divided between no more, and possibly less than 10 winners, who will be chosen by me, or a judge selected by me.

  • One submission per person

  • If you enter a photo please up vote this post so that the contest can continue. All resteems are appreciated!

  • You can create a post using the tag shadowphoto but the photo or link MUST be posted in the comments here as well.

  • Feel free to use editing and effects to create a special look if you want. Phone photos are great!

  • The photo must be your original work. Please don't use photos that you find on the internet!

  • Submissions will no longer be accepted after the post has payed out in 7 days.

A Hint. Since this is a week long contest, if you publish a post with your entry, you may want to enter on the last few days of the contest. That way your post is still live and can be upvoted when the winners are announced.

Remember to upvote this post when you enter or your entry will not qualify!

Thank you very much friend....!

Its a wolf! Love the effects! Thanks for entering!

Definitely on time! Two more days to go for hand shadiw entries. Love this shadow! Thanks for entering!

Hello, Melinda! This is my entry 😁:

Last week I received a reward that I did not understand, but I'm already clearer. Thank you, you are very generous 💗!

Look at that cool shadow! I love it. The reward was based on Steem that I paid in to @steem-bounty and you will get it again this week. It is based on the upvote you get on this comment it is simply a way for me to give a bigger upvote on your comment without using more of my voting power. I'm uncertain if I will continue doing it. It doesn't seem that many people even noticed it.

Oh, that's great and it's a beautiful act on your part! in the description of the reward says it comes from you, maybe this week many begin to notice

That is so sweet! Thanks for entering!

This is my entry contest No. 2 hand photo contest No. 36. I hope you like it.


A sheep! Love it Thanks for entering

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

I recruited some hand models at the beach today!


They really had lovely hands don't you think? I took some with just the shadows but i thought they all looked so good i would post this one :)

So, did you say "may I borrow your hands please?" Great hand shadows! Thanks for entering!

My opening line was "Could you help me take a photo?" Then i told them it was hand shadows for a contest! Then i told them about Steemit and that's when i knew i was starting to annoy them haha.

Hahaha! But it is hard not to talk about Steem, isn't it?
Glad they were willing to help you out! It's a great photo. ❤️

I rarely talk about steem anymore... It really puts most people into that vibe of - gotta get away from this guy quick. Lol

Hopefully there will come a day when they say why didn't we listen to Ross sooner?

I hope!

Hi @melinda010100 sorry if i have made it a bit difficult for you i was having to much fun and got a bit carried :)

Thanks for all your support, Pix!

Thanks for posting my photo, my dear Melinda! I know nothing about bounties, you are always ahead of time. I got some! Thanks, sweetie! Let the party start!

It seems that the bounties payout after the post pays out, so the Bounty you received would have been from last week's contest.

You are the most generous friend one can have. Thanks so much, sweetie! I have to explore it a bit!

It appears to be a good way to add to my voting power and reward people for entering the contest. Rather like giving a tip.

It sure looks like! You are a true curator, my dear Melinda!

Thanks for explaining how you took the shadow photo! Nicely done! Thanks for entering!

Crisp and distinct! Great shadow photo! Thanks for entering!

Thank you 🙏🏻

¿Dónde estará mi mitad?

Now that sends a message! Hope you find the other half. Thanks for entering!

@rentmoney give us a hand over here. How does steem bounty work?

I'm figuring out that it is rather like tipu, in that it is a way to expand upon your voting power and pay for additional upvotes to the people that get upvoted on the post. I think I need to be encouraging everyone to upvote their favorite entries, because then the entry will get a bigger share of the Bounty. Does that sound right to you? I'll get it figured out yet!

That's how I've seen it used. @rentmoney uses it I was hoping he would see his mention and chime in

There were a few comments and self upvotes from people who were chasing the bounty and I'm not liking that aspect of it. Unless someone explains how that benefits us, this will be my last time using it.

I've seen that problem with Bounties. Don't think there is a way to stop it

That's what I was thinkig. This might not be for me.

I am just noticing this now.

To place a bounty on a topic all you need to do is go to your wallet and send any amount of Steem or SBD to @steem-bounty. Place the topic url in the memo section with nothing else included.

To give out the bounty all you have to do is upvote comments in the topic the bounty was placed on. Everyone who gets upvoted wins a share of the bounty.

95 % of the bounty that is placed on a topic is paid out via the bounty creator. The other 5 % gets paid out via the community upvotes.

The bounty is then shared between everyone who got an upvote on the same day the topic reaches its payout date.

  • If you have anymore question ask away and I will do my best to answer them.

A good contest for this week @melinda010100, with photos of hand shadows. Hopefully I can take part in a shadow contest for this week. (Shadow Photo Contest is a project supported by @photofriend). Good support.

Hope to see an entry from you! Thanks for the support and the resteem!
