Hello to all photography lovers!

As you know, I love photography and contests ^^ Almost every day I propose a speed-game and you are every time more to join us =). After the success of my first MACRO-PHOTO CONTEST, I decided to make a second one.

The 2nd 🐜 7 DAYS MACRO-PHOTOGRAPHY CHALLENGE 🐜 will open tonight my Steemians friends!!!

I'm waiting for your entries =D!!! I can't wait!!!! 😄😄😄


What is exactly Macro-photography?

Macro photography, is extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects and living organisms like insects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size.


In my last contest again, there were dishonest participants who used pictures of other people. I don't tolerate this kind of behavior! The philosophy of this platform is based on quality and authenticity, not copy. That's why I have to put in place strict rules to avoid cheating. I let you discover the rules of this contest my Steemians friends.

It starts TODAY at 0:01! 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 YOUR OWN WORK and must be accompanied by a PROOF. It can be:

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

Example by @boddhisattva:

  • The original version of your unedited photo

Example by @marjanko:

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

Example by @arisinho:

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
Any attempt at plagiarism will be reported to the @steemcleaners

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 MACRO-PHOTOGRAPHY CHALLENGE #2 by @flamingirl"

I researched this a bit and I realized I still don't have enough SP to have that bar, but I found a way to install it. :D Thank you for your response! :)

Insect hunt on the move......
Can other things be presented apart from insects??

Of course! Objects, plants, fruits ... All that is in macro format =D

Here we go.... ❤️❤️

¿Hola amiga como estás? sabes que el fin de semana fui a un lugar y tome fotos de algunas flores pequeñas y unas frutas. No sabía del concurso. Puedo colocar esa foto?
¿El usuario debe participar todos los días? ¿basta con un solo día?

Puedes participar cada día (7 días a partir de ahora). Y puedes colocar la foto si tienes algún tipo de prueba que es la tuya 😊

Here I leave my ticket for this day, I hope you like it. Regards @flamingirl
Perfect camouflage

@sallybeth23 was also competition with you, insite of the eye was looking amazing...
