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 @derekkind with the following entry:
This is a day-to-night transition photo taken in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I left the camera is one position for a few hours to capture daytime light (with a rainbow), and later the blue hour with light trails.
What a great contribution from @derekkind to the weekly photo challenge! I have visited @derekkind blog and upvoted his post called: The Subway. @derekkind amazing entry from USA is qualifying for the weekly challenge where it will be competing against upcoming and previous winners of the week:
@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.
@finance2nomad Australian Monday entry:
This is Mount Cook National Park in New Zealand. Mount Cook is the tallest mountain in New Zealand at 3,724 metres (12,218 feet). The park has glacial surrounds, pristine blue lakes and towering alpine peaks, and offers some of the most impressive mountain walks in New Zealand.

@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.
@ansharphoto African Wednesday 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.
@adonisabril European Thursday entry:
The Quaint Fishing Village of Reine. Have you ever had one of those days where you just want to escape? Away from the hustle and bustle of the city life? Dodge the canopies of the concrete jungle? A break from social media. A break from smartphones and computers? Well, the fishing village of Reine is where you'd want to be. It's remote enough to be away from civilization but civilized enough to provide home comforts. You'll likely stay in one of the red fishing houses scattered throughout its bay and inlets. You might even see the famed Northern Lights if you're lucky. You can climb one of the peaks surrounding the village for some of the most breathtaking views in the world. It's one of the places that will make you want to visit Norway.
The winner of the weekly challenge will be selected by you based on the dollar value of this post and then entered to a monthly and possibly yearly challenge on the way to win the price of 200 SBD in total. You can give @derekkind your support by upvoting this winner announcement post.
My next challenge is coming shortly: South American Saturday. Get your pictures ready! :)
