📷 Steemit Photo Challenge - SPC 44 WINNERS 📷 — One Year Anniversary! Special Prizes Coming! | Upvote+ReSteem To Win 10 SBD!!

Welcome to the one and only, the original Steemit Photo Challenge!

The SPC is about to turn One Year Old! Read below for more info.

The theme was

Food II

The guest judge was @gringalicious

Here’s what she had to say:

Wow, I knew when I volunteered to be judge, ( from my experience of judging the Culinary Contests ) it would be a difficult task. However, I under estimated the difficulty. Too many fantastic photos to choose from. Nonetheless, I had to narrow it down, so my selections were based upon the following: 1. Depth of field 2. Lighting 3. Subject Focus 4. Color Balance 5. Photo Styling. Congrats to all that entered, there are some amazing photographers out there.

Who’s hungry?

100% UpVoted, @randowhale UpVoted & Re-steemed! More about the Initiative here...

Happy 1 Year Anniversary!

One the original, best, and highly recommended Steemit contests!

Congratulations to all the winners!

As for a new theme, how about

Tools of the Trade

These could be your own tools, or someone else's. I think this could be a diverse and interesting subject!

I'm thinking not just hammers and screwdrivers, but tattoo guns & inks, paint brushes, window squeegees, fancy suit & shoes, musical instruments, a beggars hat &a cardboard sign...
Anything you use to make a living!

Very interesting idea

That would be a cool idea to roll with, great suggestion! :)

@jamtaylor Thanks a lot for the competition. 3rd place in my first competition is amazing. I'll definitely be entering more competitions soon!

I'd like to see something like urban free climbing style pictures.
Something extreme

Wow great photos

Beautiful entries! Congratulations to the winners!

A TABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!^^ miam!!!!

Congratulations on being so consistent with your photo challenge for nearly a year. That's a real accomplishment! It's great that you get guest judges that change from challenge to challenge, too. @gringalicious did a wonderful turn in choosing all these winners. Congratulations to them all. Food photography is so tough to get as nice as all the ones shown here!

Congratulations to all the winners, your photos are amazing ♥♥♥
And thank you for the honourable mentions :D

Nice photo @isshappy. Wondering what that green stuff is at the bottom of the bowl!

Thank you so much! It's a green smoothie :)

A beautiful topic, I have done my best. I wish you a beautiful day. Please support me

This is amazing. Presentation was always my weak point when creating recipes. Looking at these amazing pictures from creators has given me so much inspiration and ideas on how to improve on presentation that it has sparked my passion to cook more than ever for my Youtube Channel and now for Steemit. Thank you for all that you do. It is a great inspiration and guide to be able to come here and see all of these amazing creations.

Lots of colorful shots of delicious food. The food styling is fantastic. Congratulations to all the winners. Resteemed

@jamtaylor, the quality of photographs is astonishing. These steemian are extremely talented and also intimidating to newbies like me. Some might even be professional photograpbers, looking at the sophistication in the photos.

Thank you for your contest that aims to bring these talents to lime light. Perhaps I will throw my hat in the ring. But first I need to search for a celebration in my town. Or create one !!! 😊

This is a great idea. Thanks will be participating for sure.
