Flower photography is accessible to almost anyone. All you need to do is step out of your door and find some pretty flowers! The beauty is that they come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, so the possibilities are practically limitless.

In this contest, we are going to take a photo of a single flower. It can be a flower in a pot or a wildflower. The only requirement is that there are no other flowers in your photo.

You can go very far into perfecting your flower photos. Experiment with lenses, shutter speeds, tripods, and different angles. If you want to learn more, have a look at these excellent tips:

To get some inspiration, have a look at this contest on Pxleyes from 11 years ago. It was won by a user named 'janoogee' with this entry:

Good luck!

PS: Try to vote on all entries in the contest. The more votes we get, the more accurate the rankings will be. Also, when you see something on someone's entry that can be improved, let them know. That way, we can learn new skills from each other!

PS 2: Ideas for future contests can be submitted here. The best ideas will be picked and turned into a contest. Make sure to clearly define the rules and objectives of the contest.

Ice Blue in Iceland created by pix2go

Spotted this little lovely in the public gardens in Akureyri, Iceland. I was amazed at the splashes of color throughout the island, warmth and vibrance against the cool grey skies. Go there! You'll never regret it.
