Saturday Sareenity - Weekly Challenge 7

Welcome to Saturday Sareenity, a weekly meme where you can submit any photo that you think symbolises something calm and serene. It could be nature, landscape, critters, children; absolutely anything.

Based on the voting, we'll have a 'Featured Photo of the Week' in the following week's challenge.

In addition, you can still participate if you don't have a photo that qualifies for symbolising 'calm and serene', but then it cannot qualify for being the featured photo, even if it gets the most votes.

And yes, please do link back to My Third Eye or Saturday Sareenity.

This week was great - the quality of photos coming in were absolutely breathtaking. There were at least 5-6 shots that I absolutely fell in love with and could easily by classified as stunning by all means! And the others too were lovely and serene in their own right.

This meant that voting was very tough; even I had a very had time picking and casting three votes. But the good part was that as many as 11 entries got voted, which means that not only was voting turnout good but also that it was really hard to choose a favourite; we all have our preferences given the mood we are in don't we?

Anyways, without much ado, the winner from last week is LadyFi's - Frozen Lilac.

This shot is from Sweden and shot...well, I wonder if I really have to say anything about it?

Congrats, and feel free to grab your 'Featured' button!

I do have a little question; how does everyone prefer voting? Do you prefer voting for just one entry or are happy to vote for 3? Or would you like to vote for 5 entries and want to see the top 3 featured? I'd appreciate your feedback on this. 

And now for this week's challenge. 

For those who are new, here are a few simple rules to play by:
  • Do link the permalink of the blog post that you're submitting and not you're blog URL
  • Please do try visit fellow participants; should help in discovering other good photography blogs and in learning
  • You can submit your entries Fri-Tue and then come back to vote Tue-Thus
  • It would be nice if you could follow
  • By contributing to the meme, you give me permission to use the submitted photo on my site and even feature it if its the top pick of the week
  • You must link up to My Third Eye or Saturday Sareenity for others to join and I'd appreciate it if you can add the button


PS: 'Sareen' is my last name and hence the creative liberty of spelling serene :).

  5. Hi Rohit!
    I would love to post a picture to this challenge. I've been so uninspired to blog lately.. shame on me!:-)

  6. I will try later this evening.. hehe

  7. Ha! I've finally worked the voting thing out ... so easy!!

    I'm quite happy to vote for 3 and have one winner! I think voting for 5 would dilute the effect!!

    Thanx for hosting - it's a great meme!!

  8. I noticed the Saturday Sareenity post didn't go up this week & wondered if you're doing okay.

  9. Sorry and Thank you all! I'll take 3 votes as the way forward!

    Cheryl - very sweet of you to check...I'm doing alright, just bogged down with professional assignments.


Appreciation is encouraging and criticism will help me get better. Please do leave your feedback...
