Thanks Jamtaylor.. That's amazing !!! I might need to ask you to help me verifying with Streemian account so i can follow you and possibly curate myself.. I'd maybe also like to be considered as a guest judge sometime :)


No problem, just let me know what you need help with. I'll keep you in mind for judging in the future


Thanks Jam, I'll make a couple of screenshots.. might be something to do with using the wrong password to get the final validation.. appreciated. streemian looks really interesting and yes, look forward to maybe judging some photos for you in the future.. I'm interested in all topics, although I'll probably be a bit busy over the next few weeks with our new baby ! (born yesterday)

Very Powerful image @outerground Congrats! Looking forward to some nice landscapes this week!

Maybe next weeks theme could be double exposure ;)

Hi! Great pictures!! Congrats to the winners! Some suggestions for new themes: seascapes, cityscapes, surrealism, childhood, lowkey photography.


I support your idea I would like the childhood.

What is the next challenge? Do we just go back to week one? Some suggestions for new challenges:
reflective photography
water in any form photography
alternative practices photography
documentary photography
hope you like some of these ideas!


The next one will be a secret until Thursday! Thanks for the suggestions, I'll make a decision over the next week on what the next one will be!


cool! I look forward to it!

Super stoked about my first Photo Challenge!
