Great entries all around. Congratulations winners! You were up against so much heated competition.

Now reflections. Such a cool challenging subject matter. This ought to be fun.

Hello, I would like to participate on the next #steemitphotochallenge . I have one question: can I mark my photography with logo/watermark or it needs to be just plain photo?


You can definitely put a watermark, but my advice would be to do it in a way that doesn't distract from the image because that may affect the judge's choice.


Yes, I agree, discreet watermark is so much better, I just like my photography marked :)

Love the pic from @riansantoso - a lovely perspective


Check mine out! :-) HERE

Here's my reflection and first ever #steemitphotocontest submission! Thanks for hosting this contest.
(and thanks to anyone who checks out my entry!)

Hey all!! Thanks so much for upvoting my first entry! It feels nice to finally break $1 :D haha.
I'd really appreciate it if you could help me keep this momentum and vote on my SECOND EVER SPC ENTRY! Really, thank you. I've been taking and posting photos for years just because, and now I finally feel like the people who appreciate it can show it in a way that actually helps me be less poor, lol. Steem on!

Hello, this is my first time entries so I hope I did everything right! Regards! https://steemit.com/steemitphotochallenge/@oceansoul13/steemitphotochallenge-21-reflections-all-entries
