Photos 6 and 37 are the same image! (My bad…)

Besides that, 5 votes is tough. I've narrowed my choices down to 8, and none of them are my own photos!

Hah! I got nominated here. Never expected that, guess if I take enough pics at least one will turn out good :P

HaaTa: your pic isn’t good, sorry. Fortunately, the keyboard you were photographing is cool enough to make up for the shitty pic. :P

A bit late to start over. (Any edit to the poll options triggers a new vote.) We're judging these by the pictures, not the descriptions anyway. If it makes it to the finals, Webwit can sort it then.

Absolutely. Only 5 go through, so just 11%. This is the most competitive award of all!

I voted for yours, by the way. I like the soft glow of that shot. If only HaaTa could do that with his subjects! The Kibohd Master could use a trip to the camera store… it'll be worth it, trust us.

I still wonder why you nominated the phone pic of my desktop setup, Mu :D

It's a nice shot. That's what matters in the end. Gear helps get you there, but the picture that comes out is what counts. You caught a nice bit of lighting with a real soft scatter of light across the desk and wall; which I'm a sucker for.

And those old speakers remind me of what I used to have hooked up to my SoundBlaster AWE32!

Well, thanks hehe. That's what my desktop looks like every noon/afternoon. It really looks nice and is kind of cozy to have some sun beams dancing along the wall behind my monitors :mrgreen:

Yup. That's why I nominated it! I think HAL's got a good shot at the prize with that one. It's a moment as much as a keyboard.

I love how focused they both are. Did his wife take the photo? She would get the wingnut then, not HAL. :D

She'd better like MX. Those wingnuts need adapters to fit on anything else:

Naturally, I'm as interested as anyone in how Matteo's MX on BS adapters are coming along. I have no other clacks!

It's damn tricky choosing with only 5 votes. I didn't have any votes left for my own photos. :P
