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 MACRO-PHOTO CONTEST and the SUNSET PHOTO CONTEST, I decided to make a new one:



I love macro photography, but I am also a nature lover but I also like the city, so I wanted to change the theme this time =). No need for specific material for this contest, it is accessible to all because even with a smartphone it is possible to have a beautiful urban photo.

Urban photography can be:

♡ street art
♡ people on the street
♡ urban architecture
♡ buildings and monuments in the city
♡ road traffic, street, vehicles


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!


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 2nd photography with a paper with "My entry for the B&W URBAN PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST by @flamingirl" IN FRONT OF THE PHOTOGRAPHY. Not only a paper because it does not prove anything. Thank you ^^.

Example by @oscardjld:

  • The original version of your unedited photo

Example by @pradeepdee6:

  • The photo of your camera with the image on the screen

Example by @carlgrand:

  • You front of the same urban photography

Example by @mhm-philippines

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 B&W URBAN PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST by @flamingirl"

➍ Your photography blog must be posted before 0:00 of the day Time zone in 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 "#urban-photocontest" and "#blackandwhite " tags 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 of this contest: [CONTEST- 50 SBD] / 7 DAYS B&W URBAN PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST! .

➑ You must have fun! =D


• With the 2 members of my Jury: @pankajborah and @soorefunmi, we will choose together the 5 best entries of the day and select an absolute winner of each day. I will write a post the next day with the 5 entries selected. I will upvote the winner of the day 100% and he will be automatically selected to participate in the final to win the 30 SBD. I will also upvote the other 4 entries at 25% each with an honorable mention.

• It's possible to join the contest at any time.

• 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! ;)

My entry for the 7 DAYS STEEMIT B&W URBAN PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST by @flamingirl - Day #3 - Two worlds of Dubai Marina

Insanely amazing Dubai Marina with all those skyscrapers, steel and glass.. now in B&W vision.
Pretty hard to get full reflection of such tall buildings, but from position got enough wide angle to catch all the view

Enjoy the scenery :)

Mmmm love this one.... my favourite so far I think. Good luck 👊

I love B&W photography, so I will definitely try it!

My entry for the 7 DAYS STEEMIT B&W URBAN PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST by @flamingirl - Day #6 - Urban art of Tel-Aviv

Some pretty nice urban art at the beach of Tel-Aviv shot few years ago during our trip. Even got pretty cold weather (rare, but happens), but anyhow lots of emotions.
Black and white conversion works pretty nice here due many different colors actually used for this graffiti

Enjoy the scenery :)

My entry for the 7 DAYS STEEMIT B&W URBAN PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST by @flamingirl - Day #3 - Birds of Tel-Aviv

Shot at some of central squares of Tel-Aviv during our trip few years ago. Perfectly represent idea of a moving urban city: buildings, transport, but still birds and humans making the city alive

Some additional effects in post-production (PS+LR). Natural light only

Enjoy the scenery :)

My entry for the 7 DAYS STEEMIT B&W URBAN PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST by @flamingirl - Day #2 - Mixed centuries

Spectacular Great Pyramid of Giza and the view to the modern city further away shot with a long tele-photo lens in order to compress a perspective and combine both in one frame
So many centuries are between those stunning examples of architecture

Enjoy the scenery :)

Yes you missed the first day ... shame on you @axeman hahahaha XD
Thank you for this wonderful entry! Nice work as usual! My jury and I will study all your entries with great attention =)
See you soon for the winner of the day!

The problem with not daily or weekly contests in steemit is that you never know when new one starts... moreover if passing few weeks in between. What I do with my NSFW contest is tagging all previous winners, so at least they get mentions popping up :)

Good idea! Thank you for the advice, I will take note for next time =) I would like to organize more contests but I'm running out of time ...

My entry for the 7 DAYS STEEMIT B&W URBAN PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST by @flamingirl - Day #4 - Streets of Valletta

Long and narrow streets of Valletta formed by pretty high buildings in order no to let direct sunshine come inside and reduce summer heat. Few centuries of the history is concentrated in only 800 mtrs length of the capital of Malta. Full of churches and statues

Enjoy the scenery :)

My entry for the 7 DAYS STEEMIT B&W URBAN PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST by @flamingirl - Day #7 - Tower of Sauron

Famous Burj Khalifa, Dubai, UAE on a suddenly cloudy day shot with wide-angle lens. Amazing example of modern architecture and looks not bad in black and white conversion as well
