[CONTEST- 50 SBD] / 7 DAYS 🌅 BEST SUNSET PHOTO CONTEST! 🌅

in sunset-contest •  4 months ago

Hello to all photography lovers!

As you know, I love photography and contests ^^ Almost every day I propose a speed-game with the application @steepshot and you are every time more to join us =). After the success of the last BIG MACRO-PHOTO CONTEST, I decided to make a new one:

THE BEST SUNSET PHOTO CONTEST!!!

tropical-1651423_960_720-01.jpeg

I love macro photography but I am also a nature lover so I wanted to change the theme this time =). For macro photography it is necessary to have a specific material to have a great quality but this time with a smartphone it is possible to have a beautiful sunset photo.

As you may know in my macro contest, there were dishonest participants who used pictures of other people. I do not tolerate this kind of behavior and this platform is about quality and does not accept copying. That's why I had to change the rules and find a way to sort between the real and the falsework. I think I found the solution =). I let you discover the rules of this contest my Steemians friends.



It starts TODAY! 50 SBD TO WIN!

bitmoji-20180702122245.png

1st place: 30 SBD

2nd place: 10 SBD

3rd place: 5 SBD

4th place: 5 SBD



The 8 RULES are simple:

To be considered for the contest,

➊ Your photography must be made by you and must be accompanied by a proof. It can be:

  • a second photography with a paper with "My entry for the SUNSET PHOTO CONTEST by @flamingirl" in front of the sunset. Not only a paper because it does not prove anything ^^.

Example by @adibiqbal:

  • the original version of your unedited photo
  • the photo of your camera with the image on the screen

Example by @bluesapphire06

  • you with your camera with the image on the screen
  • you font of the same sunset

Example by @marconah

This second photo does not count for the contest but it is the proof that the first one is an original photo. This avoids any attempt at plagiarism that is not tolerated on this platform. =)

➋ Your photography must be accompanied by an explanation of at least 50 words (in English, French or Spanish)

➌ Your entry must be published on your personal Steemit account with the title "My entry for the 7 DAYS STEEMIT SUNSET PHOTO CONTEST by @flamingirl"

➍ Your photography blog must be posted before 0:00 of the day (time zone of Spain) to be valid. After midnight, it will be part of the next selections day. Each user has 1 entry per day that will be valid for the challenge.

➎ You need to be my follower =)

➏ You must use the "#sunset-contest" tag in your article. So I can find your entry easily otherwise it is lost among all the blogs posted on Steemit.

➐ You must RESTEEM the first blog [CONTEST- 50 SBD] / 7 DAYS BEST SUNSET PHOTO CONTEST! .

➑ You must have fun! =D


SELECTION:

• I will choose the 10 best entries of the day and select an absolute winner of each day. I will write a post the next day with the 10 entries selected and upvote the winner of the day. He will be selected to participate in the final to win the 30 SBD.

• The contest winner will receive the prize, directly from me in his wallet with a personal message =)

• By entering this contest you authorize me to use your photos and accompanying text only in the related posts of the contest.

You can vote to support the participants. Your votes and your comments will help me to choose the winners! ;)

If you like photography, nature and sunset feel free to participate, even if you are novice ^^. Here we go!

I am the only judge, so no corruption is possible in this contest. Everyone has a chance!

Good Luck to everyone who enters and let's have some fun!!!!!!

great stuff..

Here are my Photos for the contest

Here's my entry. I took it last year in Gijon, Spain, in a hot summer sunset, with a Sony a6000, 35-50mm lens. There was a sea fog in the air which helped filter the sun and create the warm effect. Hope you like it!

·

Yeah... I love sunset

Juguemos y pongámonos creativos/románticos con esos atardeceres, @flamingirl hahaha

·

Jaja si y no puedo esperar para ver tu entrada ... 🎊🤗☀🔥📸🌅

This is an interesting new contest which inspires a much more fresh approach. It’s much more of the moment, we can’t pull our favourites out of our libraries as it can take weeks of trial and disappointment to get the very best photos. This allows many more people to take part too which is great for the community. And beyond everything it requires people to go out and experience the sunset every day which is an extremely enlightening and uplifting time of day, so BIG CONGRATULATIONS on coming up with this and the new rules. Excellent work @flamingirl. I shall have to miss the first day as with your last contest as my sun doesn’t set until after your midnight 👏👏👏💛🦋🌈🌴

·

Thank you very much @sallybeth23. You're absolutely right, this contest is accessible to more people because you just have a smartphone and go out at sunset. What I like about this contest is that the sun is accessible to everyone. We all have the same with different sets in every corner of the world ... It's the beauty of life and nature. I can not wait to see your entry !!! 🔥🎊😍📸🌅☀💋❤💛

·
·

Thanks so much for your support, I shall be hoping for the best sunsets this coming week! It is the rainy season here so I have to keep my fingers crossed they are not a wash out!! Have a beautiful Barcelonan sunset my friend ! 🔥🌅🐩🌈

I personally am amazed with your work @flamingirl because it can add insight and knowledge big enough for all of us thanks.

Hello @flamingirl, 4 months ago I published a post about a trip made in Santo Domingo two years ago. Could I use this?

·

Yes, if you find a way to prove that it is a photo taken by yourself 😊

May in Lithuania is the month when finally spring comes and the nature starts to bloom. The fine example this field of blooming poppies somewhere in the middle of Lithuania.
Actually was going pretty far way to make portrait photoshoot and was very lucky to get such a stunning skies on colorful sunset, so managed also to make few landscape shots.

Wide angle lens and low shooting point

Enjoy it!

What about sun rise shots? Do they count? Great idea making people prove they took the photo.

I wish I could participate, I have a nice sunset shot, but I sold the camera I took it with last year... :D Can I apply anyways?

Everyone knows that you have an open heart and open arms and are always ready to embrace them and their troubles.
Thank you for the great contest!!!

Thank you for your nice comment as always my dear friend! 😊

Here's another one I love. This one is in Colonia de Sacramento, Uruguay. I was living in Montevideo at that time. It was a summer day, and people where having beer and snacks, and chilling in the dock. Took with a Samsung S5.

Summer in Klaipeda, Lithuania maybe still hot, but not for a long period. Baltic Sea is generally pretty cold even summer. But very often though we have here stunning sunsets.

Here is the fine example of such warm and stunningly colourful sunset. The fishermen just came back from fishing and I have managed quickly to get the boat into the frame

Enjoy the scenery!

Stunningly colourful and calm summer sunset at the coast of Baltic Sea, Lithuania. Very rare occasion when the sea is so calm that looks like a lake...
Amazing cloud formations and very soft light when the sun is almost at the horizon line but almost covered by clouds
This island is actually just a stone. Shot from quite low shooting point

Enjoy it!

Dutchman's Cup - so called high dune nearby Klaipeda, Lithuania. Very nice place with some interesting stones at the coast line. In fact still my favorite place to go for a sunset from the closest ones. Can get there in some 20-30 mins by car.
So pretty convenient when it is already visible that some nice sunset could be expected

This time was pretty stormy autumn evening with a storm heavy clouds front coming on the horizon. But still was lucky got few minutes of sunshine at the very end of sunset which colored the sky pretty perfectly

Enjoy it!

Stunningly colourful and pretty contrasting sunset at Baltic Sea, nearby Klaipeda, Lithuania. June summer warm colors, but still pretty windy with a long waves.
A bit of long exposure used to freeze the water. And of course nice structural piece of wood as perfect foreground

Enjoy the scenery!
