Top 10 WeeklyFstops: Show Me 'Yours'

Top 10 WeeklyFstops: Show Me 'Yours'

This week's theme of "yours" was less obvious than any of our previous prompts. That did not seem to dissuade any of the participants from submitting great shots. Of the four lists put together so far, this one might be the favorite. I'm also excited about the new theme this week, so be sure to check it out and join in.

One thing that keeping this attached one hashtag does though allows me to sift through previous entries if they seem fitting. I have to scroll through all the shots anyway since users are allowed to add a hashtag in the comments of an older shot to make it show up in the search. Just remember that doing it this way takes away the bonus chance of being featured in Instagram's top nine results for the hashtag. Without further ado, here are this week's best shots.

The older man's face in this image is priceless. It almost seems staged more than I assume it was. Great work, and congratulations on taking the top pick!

What is This Week's Theme?

For this week's prompt, let's go with:

"Simplicity"

I've found that the shots that I really like, and the shots that seem to be universally popular, often feature simplicity. The main subject is usually clear, and the composition will contain very little or no distractions. I can't wait to see what you come up with for simplicity!

The hashtag to use is #weeklyFstop. If you are tagging an old shot that is fine, but please try and keep it to one shot picked for the theme per week.

Here are the previous week's results for anyone who may have missed:

  1. Leading Lines
  2. Bold
  3. Color

There are a number of people playing every week now which is great! If some of you are so inclined, try and recruit some peers. The more people playing the better our lists will be!

Remember, there is no guarantee posting a photo will result in it being featured. If we get going and you fall short, keep shooting and try and learn from the photos that are selected. We can all learn to like our work a little less sometimes in order to grow. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas feel free to contribute in the comments.

While you are dropping your name in the hat, are you all aware of the ongoing Fstoppers Photographer of the Month contest leading up to the Fstoppers Community Photographer of the Year? Alex Cooke covers how to be selected at the bottom of the above post.

Speaking of the Fstoppers community, are you part of it? Did you know you can have your own portfolio here with chances to be featured on the homepage as Photo of the Day? If not be sure to check it out. If you already comment then you have an account. If not, use the sign-up button and upload some work!

Number 1 and 3 are my favorites.

I agree those two are great. Thanks for looking William!

Thanks for running this series Michael! I took the #1 pic. It wasn't staged. He made that face when his granddaughter pulled the whiskey away from him and told him to smile for the picture. He wanted no part of that.

Well he's a natural! Great work, and thank you for joining in :)
