These photo challenges are already one of my favorite things to participate in here on Steemit and it looks like they are just getting better and better!
Congrats and thanks~*~

Excellent idea once again.
What an exciting weekend we are all about to have!

absolutely love your photo challenges

I'm sorry, tell me what is the theme of the photos this week?

challenged accepted lol

Excellent theme - very excited to participate! Now I gotta go photo adventuring!

This I can do well. I guess.

I will give my minimum effort to produce an excellent minimalistic photo :)

Immense gratitude for the steady inspiration, @jamtaylor! These challenges are awesome, and we're stoked for this week's theme
Deep thanks for hosting again and again, @berniesanders!

if i wanna be Judge?) and the theme ... I'd like to see street shooting - random people, stories ... what do u say?)


I'll keep it in mind :)

I Just know what's SteemitPhotoChallenge tag

Thank you very much

OK, i probably won't sit this out but I probably.... well let's see.

You are a wonderful person.

I think Low-Key Photography would be an interesting theme!

@jamtaylor, I'm intending to enter the steemitphotochallenge for the first time - yay! Do I post my three images as separate posts? Oh, and what do you mean by 'basic processing', please? I shoot raw and develop in LR...


Hey, You can do it as three posts if you want, but it's better to do three images in one post. I'm not super strict on the 'basic processing' I just don't want any 'digital paintings' or something that just looks heavily processed.


OK, gotcha :o) Oh, just one more thing - what sort of size (pixel dimensions) is best to embed them at - and what ppi do you prefer?

P.S. I've signed up for SteemIMG - kudos to @blueorgy - I'll be trialling it for this comp!


Sorry for the slow response, best pixel dimensions for Steemit would be 800px wide to fill the content area, but you can do it high res if you use Steemimg with a linked image to the high res, keep in mind that it might slow down the loading from many users if the files are large.


Thanks, @jamtaylor :o) Jay


OMG, this minimalist thing is quite the challenge! I'm going to end up posting mine one by one, I think, just in case I screw up and miss the deadline trying to finish all 3 entries!

I haven't entered the photo challenge yet. Would be my first but looks like a lot of fun so I'll give it a try. Thanks!

Love minimalism photography! Great choice for the weekend.

Hey awesome @jamtaylor! I just now came across these contests, somehow I missed the previous ones. haha I made my entry post a few minutes ago.


Thanks so much for this opportunity!

Thanks for putting this all together! I'm excited to participate.

When we see the results?


Tomorrow :)
