What do I mean by Full-Frame? I am not talking about the different camera sensors - Full-Frame versus Cropped Frame, but about how the image looks on paper or on the screen. In stock photography the keyword Full-Frame is used to describe an image that totally fills the screen or page in such a way that it could be used as a background in design.


The theme is FULL-FRAME FLOWERS. Please note the plural FLOWERS. Your image should contain multiple flowers or flower heads as in my examples. I'm not looking for macro shots of single flowers, although they are beautiful!

The following examples of white rhododendron flowers that I photographed in Massachusetts last week should make it clear. Only images that conform to the requirements of the contest will be considered for a win!

Please remember that this is a PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST, so please submit your very best images, as the contest is judged based on image quality and technique as well as the subject matter. If you are using a smartphone, please be sure to use the highest quality available to shoot your image, as image quality counts! If there are dust spots or anything else in the image that needs removing, please take the time to clean up the shot. Photography is not over the second you press the shutter! Post-processing has always been a very important part of photography, whether in the traditional darkroom or the digital darkroom.

There will be three winners and each will receive 1.0 SBD until further notice. Each of the Honorable Mention winners will receive a 0.1 SBD tip from tipu. The deadline for entries is is Saturday June 9th at midnight EST.

REMEMBER - YOU MUST FOLLOW THE RULES AND YOU MUST UPVOTE THIS POST (PREFEREABLY WITH AT LEAST 50% POWER) TO QUALIFY TO WIN! Without your generous Upvotes, the contest will not be able to continue.

Also, by entering this contest, you are agreeing to the display of your images in the body of next week's post if your image is a winner.

Here are the rules:

  2. You may enter 3 images for the week, preferably in separate posts.
  3. Add the #wiwcontest tag to each entered image
  4. Upvote this post (preferably at 50% power or higher.) ONLY THOSE UPVOTING THIS POST WILL QUALIFY TO WIN. Resteeming is not required, but helps to raise awareness for the contest.

The three WINNERS each week will receive 1.0 SBD until further notice.

Thanks for taking the time to read this! I truly appreciate it. Read some of my past photography tips and tutorials at photography-101.

This is my first contribution to join on your contest @dmcamera,wish you like it.

Welcome! I’m glad you are participating!

Thanks @dmcamera... I want to ask you, is it allowed a user to enter 3 posts in a week? and when the contest deadline?

Yes, 3 posts in a week and the deadline is always at midnight Saturdays EST in the USA. Please note too that I have updated the explanation for this contest in the post above. I'm not looking for macro shots of single flowers this time. So, you can enter three more if you like - as long as they meet the specifications. :-)

Thanks for the explained @dmcamera,but If my entry was correct, if not I will fix it in my next entry, sorry @dmcamera maybe I'm a little troublesome you but this is my first entru so I do not know much about it, I just see from the example thay you gave and also from other users.

Great entry

Thanks for participating!

Thank you as always! : )
Is it full enough?

It would not really be classed as full-frame because the flowers stand out from the background. There is a lot of background around the flowers. It really is a gorgeous shot, but if all the background in this case had been in focus, it would have been classed as FULL-FRAME!

Gotcha, I was sure since it was all white : )

Wow finally you did it.

Yes but the truth not easy task .i took from me few hours till i make it

Wow you did it.

Yeah thanks

Yes! That's a full-frame shot!

Thanks it mean am in !!!

Absolutely stunning! You captured the essence of White is White here!

The macro rings help with the dreaminess! This is the type of shot I am looking for. FLOWERS - plural and filling the frame, not macro shots of single flowers!

What an amazing flower. I wonder if these contests are always about flowers.

No! I cover many different subject matters in the wiwcontest!

Thanks for letting me know. The white flowers over here died and are burned by the sun.

hi @dmcamera , This is a very beautiful white Bougenville flower and I submit for this contest, Thank.



A stunning capture @dmcamera I'm looking forward to participating in this contest. Will vote and resteem in the meantime.

What a beautiful flower, thanks for sharing!

Welcome back, Diane!
Hope you had a good time and

Excellent theme for the #wiwcontest this week.
I'll post my entry before the deadline! Upv & Rsd :)

Love your Rhododendron! We have 4 across the front of the house. 2 pink, anchoring the 2 corners of the house, at 2 stories tall, these pink rhodo's are in full bloom. Our two center, white rhodo's are a month or so away from blooming.

Here's my attempt... Not my favorite shot. BUT, I am just NOT good at flowers.

Oohhh.... How interesting... Love full frame shots of flowers especially...
White flowers should make it heavenly...
Let's see what I have... :)

Looking forward to seeing what you have. 😊

I have you on autovote at less than 50% so I hope a tip! will be considered a fair substitute, I think they are worth more than my full upvote these days... lol!

Here is a link to my post also:

And it looks like the tag I meant to add last got put on the front... so it goes, can't change it now.
