2nd: jcastar with 4 votes
3rd: garuda + Mehmet Toroglu (joint third) 2 votes each.

I'll contact you all tomorrow to arrange delivery of the prizes!

Well done all!

I guess judging my the number of entries there aren't too many street photographers on this forum yet! :)

Let's see if next months theme will attract a few more entries.

=========

A big thanks to everyone who provided feedback to help get these monthly competitions off on the right foot, especially @Clix Pix

So here are the details of our first monthly competition!


Theme - Street Photography
We will start off with a fairly easy theme for this first month and that theme is street photography. Since I know there are a lot of wildlife shooters here this will hopefully encourage you to shoot something else :) If you are looking for a little inspiration then take a look at these accounts on Instagram:

Competition Dates
This competition will start on the published date of this post and will end on December 29th at 10am Eastern Time which is 3pm GMT. After this time no more entries will be accepted and voting disabled, the winner will be announced shortly afterwards. In the event of a draw a poll will be run for 48 hours to decide the winner.

What Do I Get if I Win?
I'm feeling generous this month and I also got the Samsung T7 SSD for a great price in the recent sales! :) There will probably only be vouchers up for grabs next month I'm afraid!

1st Place - The first place winner will receive a Samsung T7 Metallic Red 1 TB Portable SSD and a $50 (US Dollar) voucher for B&H Photo OR Amazon (you can choose depending on your country and preference).

2nd Place - The second place winner will receive a $30 (US dollar) voucher for B&H Photo OR Amazon.

3rd Place - The third place winner will receive a $20 (US dollar) voucher for B&H Photo OR Amazon.

If your local currency is something other than US dollars then the above amounts will be converted based on the exchange rate when the competition ends.

All winning photos will also be added to the new Competition Winners Gallery. You'll also have a competition winners banner added to your profile.

The first place winner will also have the job of choosing the topic for next competition. Don't worry, a list will be provided!

Hey! This is OUR street! :D. The city shut down this street for a while due to Covid-19. The geese already own it. A9II 200-600

"Arch in the Rain"

I've struggled with "street" photography from a definition standpoint. It's one of my favorite genres and one of the oldest veins I've participated in but I've never been overly satisfied with my results.

This was from my first trip to St. Louis. It was a beautifully rainy morning.
