I did not have an easy task choosing the winners of the #wiwcontest for Week 1, but the three winners in no particular order are:


@trulafountaine


@svarozich


@manorvillemike

Congratulations to the three winners for Week 1!

The introductory post for Week 1's contest did not have enough SBD to share (only 0.626 SBD! LOL!) so I am using tipu to reward each of the winners 1.00. I will make a comment on something each winner posts on his/her own page along with a tip in SBD explaining the win. So @trulafountaine, @manorvillemike and @svarozich, check your posts later today! If you don't post today, then I will add your tip tomorrow, or when you next make a post! Congratulations again!

It would be great if you could upvote and resteem this post! The more SBD the post gets, the more next week's winners will receive!

Beautiful arrangement! It works well in monochrome!

Thank you! @dmcamera I've never tried doing florals in monchrome. Thanks for the inspiration!

·

I know. We tend to think of flowers having to be in color, but before there was color film, there was only black and white and people had to rely on tone variation.

Exactly! Reminds me of the saying "What's old becomes new again." I remember my father taking black and white photos an developing them in the black room. Good memories!📷@dmcamera

Thanks! I like the contrast in color between the clouds and the earth below!

Thanks mystery friend! I'm guessing who you are again! I Upvoted 2 posts of someone I think may be you! The latest and second latest posts! Could I possibly finally have uncovered who you are?

·
·

I'm... not the one you voted for :-) At least, I didn't see any votes from you on my last 5 posts...
Who did you make happy this time?

·

Oh boy! It was @ats-david. He has some good photography and never seems to resteem anything. I'm thinking there's maybe a clue here though. Could I be right this time? Am I getting warm?

My oh my.. that first icy shot is just stunning :D

Hoar frost on a fence in Scotland one winter when I was home visiting! Everything was coated in it!
