That was a rough weekend, but I'm feeling much better, thanks for all the well wishes.
Let’s get some business out the way first…
Couple changes to the SPC as follows:
Themes will continue to be announced on Thursday at my convenience, usually by 2pm (UTC-4) unless somebody is willing to help me with an automated posting system, then we can have them go out automagically at midnight with all the proper formatting.
However, the deadline for entries will be extended to Tuesday at midnight (UTC-4) instead of Sunday.
Judging will then occur from Tuesday until Thursday, when the winners and the new theme will be announced.
I’m thinking about switching to SBD, because each week the value of the prizes has gone down so much.
1st: 35 SBD
2nd: 25 SBD
3rd: 15 SBD
Honourable Mentions: 5 SBD (x5)
That, right now, is worth a bit more than the current prizes in Steem.
What do you think? Would you prefer SBD or Steem?
More than that, which would be better for Steemit?
Without further ado…

The theme for SPC #15 will be
Chosen by guest judge @randyclemens
I’m looking for something beautiful, intricate, delicate. Try to show them in a new way, if you can!
Try to be creative with the angles, lighting and composition etc.
Here is some of my own work, as further example
I'll be giving away one $50USD Amazon Gift Card to the commenter who leaves good feedback on what ends up being the winning photo. A comment such as "awesome!' "great work!" doesn't count — I want real feedback.
One person will win, will it be you?
Leave your feedback on all your favourites, let the photographers know what you think.
