All of the users in this post get a badge!

The new theme will be:

Bokeh

Guest Judge: @melodyrussell

This has been requested several times since the start of the SPC and I have avoided it… but I need to give the people what they want :)

The bokeh effect should play a large part in the composition of the photograph but it cannot be the only visual element in the shot. In other words, bokeh in the background of the subject is great, out of focus christmas tree lights - not so much.

Yes Acceptable
No

“the visual quality of the out-of-focus areas of a photographic image, especially as rendered by a particular lens.”


The deadline for entries for SPC46 is July 20 0400 AM UTC. Winners will be announced on Friday July 21.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.
