Beautiful shots...Congrats to the winners and kudos to the judge...Competition seemed furious.
P.S. I want to see next theme "Rain drops" as prop, drops could be on anything like spiderweb, leaves, flowers and i think that will look pretty awesome for the competition.
I have not been long on Steemit, may be 2 months at most, but i surely wanna challenge myself for being the judge; sounds lame, doesn't it?


I second the raindrops theme good idea !


Yes! Rain drops/dew drops would be a great theme!

I am kind of new here on STEEMIT and have started to participate in the photo competitions but found it very hard to find out a nice list of which ones are running


i have made a list of all the photo competitions i could find on Steemit and i have added yours to the list, i hope this is ok and would kindly ask a resteem to pull the photography community toghether and get a bit of an overview in all the clutter...

(and get a few upvotes in the mean time, i will be honest)


thanks in advance and STEEM ON
