📷 Steemit Photo Challenge #12 - THEME ANNOUNCEMENT - Guest Judge @violino


Special Prize Winner!

$250 USD B&H Photo Video Gift Card!

Congrats to @litrbooh for winning the Gift Card from B&H Photo Video. They have received their prize!

Look out for more prizes in the future!

The theme for SPC #11 will be

‘The Soul of the City’

Chosen by guest judge @violino

Read carefully:

Photographs of city life, in black & white. Portraits not accepted, meaning that the subject of the photo should not be the person’s face. If there are faces in the shots, they need to be minor OR somewhat obscured naturally (not with photoshop blurring etc)

NO street portraits.

There are a few examples here that meet these guidelines, so you can get an idea.

Remember: Black & White, no closeup portraits or images where the person’s face is the subject.

This is fine - Not this

Show us the soul of the city.

I want to get a feeling of life and the environment in the city, the real gritty city — not the tourist spots.

No chance I'll be able to get to a city in time :(

Interesting theme. Tricky too with 3 days notice!

Nice, but I don't have a professional camera. Now I take my smartfone and go to the street ;)


I've been watching the earlier challenges, and it looks like many already have. :)

I was looking forward to the challenge. It is the first time I participate and I hope to contribute.


Looking forward to seeing your work, good luck!

Good luck to everybody !

This should be interesting, great idea. I'll wait for the entries and then results and enjoy the mastery. I won't go into city for the weekend, though :)

Good luck!

PS: reblogged.



I'm definitely IN it for this round. :-)

Anyone know how to take black and white on a Samsung S7? :( :(


Convert it to black and white on the computer :P


Ha ! The minute I posted that I thought how dumb that question was :) ...Thanks for the response and a gr8 comp.


An app named Lenka excels at B&W photography.


Thanks @dgiors ... I will check it out.
