LMAC #25 - Summer special! [64 STEEM Power in the prize pool !]

in #letsmakeacollagelast year (edited)


Hello Steemians

Some have already voiced the concern that the LMAC might go into summer break. And indeed that is true, this will be the last instance of this contest until early September. Now is the time to go out into nature to enjoy summer rather than sitting in front of displays. 🏖🌊🛶☀️🏖

But there is no reason to be sad about this, because this round comes with double the usual prize pool! Therefore, it has never been more rewarding to join the fun!

So here it is, Round #25 of Let's make a collage! 🎨 🖌

Photo recorded by myself with an Canon EOS 7D.


The quality of entries submitted in these contests has increased so much over the past months that I, with my pre-school like editing skills, will never be a real competitor here but let me put it something here just for fun :) I am a huge fan of iguanas and they love to pretend to be sea monsters :)


Here is the original photo. Taken by me on Isla Mujeres, Mexico.

Thanks for hosting these fun challenges @shaka :)

Join the club...it's fun. There are professional artists in this contest, but art is for everyone . I love your iguana. What a noble--looking creature. Contemplating eternity--or dinner?

Thanks for these nice words :) Probably dinner haha :D

I was thinking of your comment last night as I struggled with the collage. Couldn't insert an object seamlessly into the photo. I see all those seamless inserts and wonder how do they do it? But this morning I woke and went at it again, cutting and pasting, filling and compensating. The insert looks pretty good :) I always depend on obstinacy and hard work to compensate for talent 😎
Just have fun. That's the bottom line.

True words :) Btw where is your entry? I would love to see it :)

I'm having trouble with some turtles :))

Jeeej! 😍🦎

... that I, with my pre-school like editing skills, will never be a real competitor here...

Never say never! I know what I'm talking about.
Believe me! 😎

Ok :D But honestly, I have no idea how you guys do these fancy animations like the one you just submitted here :) I love it.

I sometimes do not understand it myself. 🤣
Thank You. 😎


@shaka goes on vacation and the challenge too! Ok then there are 3 pictures of me this time, a new one every day. 😎
Here is the first ... VACATION 1

Hi @shaka,
bei der HighRes Version wird ein älteres Foto angezeigt, zumindest bei mir.

Oh, vielen Dank, sehr aufmerksam! Werde ich gleich korrigieren!

Funktioniert, Danke

EDIT: ich weiß nicht ob du das überhaupt zulässt @shaka, aber ich musste jetzt auch noch mal überarbeiten und habe noch eine zweite Version beigefügt ich fand sie etwas passender ;) und vielleicht habe ich damit ja wirklich eine Chance gegen den @muelli ?!

I like to offer my collage you find in my blog.
Thank you for the chance, dear @shaka.

the second original:

Now this is cool :) Are these Golems? Did you take the shot in Prague?

Thank you. Yes, they are Golems from Prague. But it is not my shot. The photo is free stuff from Flickr.

Ah, ok :) I used to live in Prague and I remember seeing these souvenirs all over the touristy part of the city :)

That's clever. At first I didn't get it. Then I read your blog. Always pays to look closer, doesn't it? It's a great concept piece. Very clean. Interesting.




Thank you!

Hey @agmoore2, here is your BEER token. Enjoy it!

Thank you very much!

hier kommt mein Vorschlang zur letzten Challange vor der großen Sommerpause... Happy holidays

Looks to me as though that angel will tame the storm. Beautifully done.

Last week I did not compete, this week I join, to see what happens to me with such a wonderful photo. Good luck to everyone.

Happy summer holidays @shaka ..

Really effective, the way you have the lion's feet hanging down into the water. I missed it at first--subtle.

Hi @shaka , da ich mir unsicher bin ob der Link (nicht der Butler:-)) allein reicht , stelle ich dir hier zusätzlich das Bild und "Der Film zum Bild" ein .

"Der Film zum Bild" :-))

As already threatened here comes picture number two, including misspellings. 😎

Finally, my entry (entries). Going out for the summer, @muelli style. Two collages took a very, very long time :))
First one: BOOM!!!

My blog:

Have the most wonderful summer, @shaka and everyone in the #LMAC community!

You are amazing. Each collage full of energy, and fun!

Thank you and your´s are also full of Action this time.
I like it. 😎

Wow! Thanks!

That's beautiful. I know what I want to do...wish I had @bidesign's skills. It's a great idea. But....

Take my skills and give me @agmoore’s Steems. I know what I want to do too...

I'm just happy to play...I know my limits. You have a gift.

Dear @agmoore,
There is no spoon 😋.
Hope All is going well.
You sound like a little bored.
How was your day?

You must have antennae... I'm a little grumpy today--for me :). Have a wonderful summer day. I'm off to pet sit. Those cats and dogs are a great tonic.

Ok. Relax some. And get ready for this LMAC challenge. 🤘😎🤘


I'm back, and ready to roll. See you in a couple of days---😇

welcome back 😘
