📷 Steemit Photo Challenge - Winners Long Exposure #66 - Please Resteem!

in #steemitphotochallenge3 years ago (edited)

First Place: 20 SP
Second Place: 10 SP
Third Place: 5 SP
Honourable Mentions — 2 SP Each

I may play around with these prizes depending on the response from the community. The goal is to be self-sustaining.
These have been provided by the #1 sponsor of the Steemit Photo Challenge, since 2016 — @berniesanders.

For those who are not familiar with the Steemit Photo Challenge, please read the rules below.
Remember to include SteemitPhotoChallenge in the title of the post AND as a tag, this is so that the judging app built by @blueorgy will pull the entry in for judging. Reason for this is that I was getting a lot of spam that I had to sort through and this is a good way to stop that — so remember to put it in or your entry may not be included!

The theme was

Long Exposure

A previous version of this post included an image by a user who was accused of plagiarism. Unfortunately, this user did not respond and so I have removed it from Third Place.

Industry standard processing is allowed.

Would you like to judge this theme? Leave a comment below!

Ideally, the guest judge would be specialised in the theme selected, or at least showing proficiency.
Guest judges will now receive 5 SP and will not be able to participate, obviously.

Deadline Thursday 1 March 04:00:00 GMT.
Winners will be announced on Friday 2nd.


I check the entries, and I report plagiarism. Do yourself a favour and keep plagiarism out of my contest. Thanks! If you see plagiarism, downvote it and leave a comment with the source.

Rules And Conditions

Please read these carefully and adhere to them

  • I strongly encourage you to post work that is original to this challenge, in other words — take a new photograph instead of using an old one.

  • No more than 3 entries will be considered, if you post more than 3 then only the first 3 will be considered.

  • All entries must be a post tagged both #photography and #steemitphotochallenge

  • The Title should contain "SteemitPhotoChallenge Entry" along with the title of your work. The software will not pull your entry into the judging app if this is not here. The purpose is to cut out the spam that ends up in the tag.

  • Let us know the medium used to produce the photograph, it may be more impressive based on what it is.

  • Basic processing is allowed. ‘Digital art’ won’t be considered.

  • Any medium or format is allowed — iphone, ipad, film, digital, point and shoot, drone, whatever. Once it takes a picture. Note that image quality will be considered.

  • Multiple Entries can all go in one post, just put the details under the image.
  • Any attempt to steal others' work is considered a serious infraction by the community, so don't do it. Please don't waste your and our time by posting some image from the net.
  • Every effort will be made to ensure that we do not reward theft. All images will be reverse checked, if the image has been found on more than 2 “major” websites, it will be disqualified unless reasonable proof can be shown to prove ownership of the original. If there is any doubt whatsoever about the ownership of the photograph, I reserve the right to disqualify the image. It is in your interest to provide any proof necessary. I would appreciate any help from the community in finding plagiarism where I might have missed it.
  • The photographs will be judged on how well they met the challenge, the quality of the image, the composition, lighting, exposure, creativity and the general aesthetics which means that yes, it is subjective.

By entering this competition you acknowledge that you own the rights to the photographs and allow for me to re-post the image should it receive a winner or honourable mention position.

I saw many nice entries this week and it must have been a tough job for a judge, but the winner selection is professional and each winner worthy of the title. Congratulations to all the winners and participants! BeScouted - a photography community on Steem Blockchain.

Fantastic images! Great to see @derekkind in there for the win, a truly epic shot!

Thanks man! :D

I'd be interested in judging. Been in the photo industry for about 7 years as a photographer/editor working with brands, agencies, designers.

I'm more of a creative-portraits kind of photographer but I think I have a good grasp on the theme and I would be interested in judging if you think i am fit for the role

Sounds good to me — just confirm for me that you have the time to go through all the new entries and choose 3 winners and up to 5 honourable mentions. Normally I have an app that pulls all the entries but unfortunately it is down at the moment so it has to be done the old fashioned long way. This means going through the #steemitphotochallenge tag, sort by NEW, and open all the interesting looking ones that came in after the start of the theme and before the deadline, avoiding all the spam (sorry! the app was created to get around the spam) and then decide the places.

It can be a bit time consuming. I'll need the picks on Thursday evening latest. Still interested?

i can do that. i opened the tag right now and sadly i have to inform you that there are quite a few fashion/glam images

also are you on discord or how do you plan on comunicating?

Why sadly? There are usually a couple hundred entries, so it's a bit time consuming honestly. I'm fine with doing it if you aren't able to, just tell me. The priority is being fair to the participants and having a look at all the suitable entries.

Can reach me on steemit.chat with the same username.

Congratz to all the winners and finally a topic where i can participate!

Okay, well THAT'S awesome!!! Thank you so much, @jamtaylor, for putting on this contest and for picking mine as a winner! :D And congrats on all the great winners! I love long exposure photography, so this was an exciting challenge, and I'm happy to see creative entries from everyone for the theme!

Wow! They are all absolutely amazing! I could never hold a contest because I'd never be able to make a decision 😂

Wow likes your post .. happy reading it .. really amazing ... thanks for sharing on a good day.
I like to read every post you .. I also learn a lot about steemit from every post you. Whether it's writing or photos. Thank you steemians ..
It's an honor for me if you visit my blog..

P.s. @jamtaylor you may want to check out @czechglobalhosts recent post from a couple days ago... in the comments he has a recent cheating issue with one of your winners. #justpassingthisalong

Thank you for pointing it out. I have not found the image submitted by @finance2nomad included in this post anywhere else, but I will ask that @finance2nomad address the allegations before I release any winnings from this post as I will not be rewarding plagiarisers.

Well thats good to hear hopefully its not true of course. Hoping for the best in folks.

He powered down 2 days ago so looks like an admission, just my speculation.

Congrats @derekkind always top quality landscape images as usual!

Would love to guest judge the next competition, but this genre is right up my street so im far more interested in entering it instead!

Congrats to everyone ! Some of tbe mpst beutiful pictures i have ever seen!!
Thanks you so much for shareing them!!

Stunning work by all! NICE shot, @derekkind!! Mindblowing work as usual!
Super excited to see a theme I can jump into! Let's do this!

Thanks so much @caitycat! :D

Way to go @derekkind great picture!!

Also @bil.prag gotta love those spark spinning shots!

I was so focused on other things i barely missed my opportunity to play this one.

Also I'm trying to think if i would rather play or judge this next round. There is probably someone more fitted to fashion but if not I'll help out.

Thank you, @jarvie! :D And I agree, nice steel wool spinning with the Milky Way!

Congrats Derek! Amazing shot! Where was that taken?

Thank you! It was in the Alabama Hills, in California. :)

Amazing shot and well deserved win. You have been killing these photo comps!

i was standard working and then all night photo working friday and totally missed this :( congrats to all.

Nice! Thanks a lot!! 3RD place is almost as good as first one! All the best :)

They are all beautiful! Glad I didn't have to judge....

Hell yeah love seeing people from Cali on STEEMIT congrats to the winners

Hi @jamtaylor, sorry about my question, what means that:

  • Industry standard processing is allowed -
    Thanks for your answer.

Glamour and fashion photography usually involve a lot of post-processing and in order to get the same looks then we can expect that people will need to process theirs in the same way if they choose to.

Thank you

The deadline is AM or PM ?:)

04:00 is A.M. so this deadline is now over :)
