It would be great if you can visit their blogs and appreciate their awesome photography skills with some upvotes.

However, the winner is only one and that is for me picture posted by @ansharphoto with the following entry:

Deadvlei, Namibia. This place is striking in its lifeless beauty. It’s difficult to imagine that it was ever underwater; now the earth of Deadvlei is cracked and bleached a stark white by the sun. There is little to suggest that life ever flourished there. Even its name — Deadvlei, which means “dead marsh” or “dead valley”— conveys an o ominous sense of the absence of life.

7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge – Asian Sunday week #22 – winner announcement!

@thuylannguyen Asian Sunday entry:

This is my photo taken during a trip to Sa Pa in Lao Cai province, Vietnam. Sa Pa Town is located in Lao Cai Province, north-west Vietnam, close to the border with China. Sapa Town is famous both for its fine, rugged scenery and for its rich cultural diversity. Sapa is oriented to make the most of the spectacular views emerging on clear days; it overlooks a plunging valley, with mountains towering above on all sides. Views are often subdued by thick mist rolling across the peaks, but even when it's cloudy, local hill-tribe people fill the town with colour.

7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge – Tuesday of Antarctica and world´s oceans week #22 – winner announcement!

@dmytrokorol Tuesday of Antarctica and world´s oceans entry:

Motion in blue. I found this interesting rock formation on the Cordoama beach in Portugal and had struggled to find the right position on the wet stones, wiping the lens, covering my camera from splashes and trying to capture the contrast between the motion of water and stillness of rock.

all these photos are amazing. excellent share, as always :)
I was wondering if you could help me with something: I have taken some photos during my travel to Bandarban, Bangladesh, which can be entered into the Asian Sunday, Can you give me some tips about what should I do to join the contest apart from postino? - I mean, is there a special tag (or tags) and is there some specific format of titling the post. I've been following you since i've joined steemit, but never entered in any contest - But i think, I should do that now. Please help me with your advice. Thanks in advance :)

No need to enter any tags. Just submit your image to a corresponding continent adding a short description of 30 to 50 words. All the submitted images must your personal ones. Hope to see your entry soon. Have a great day. Tomas

Thanks man :)

Congratulation @ansharphoto for winning with you amazing picture. The contrast of the dark tree with the white sand beneath it and then the orange color in the back ground makes for a fantastic looking image.
