    Welcome to this weeks photo thread!

    Theme: Technology

    Since I am one of the biggest geeks out there and I love nothing more then gadgets lets see your best pictures of your favorite tech stuff. This can be high tech, low tech however you interpret it to be.


    Rules:
    You may only submit one photo per contest.
    Please do not comment on photos until after the judging has taken place.
    The contest runs for exactly one week, starting NOW! (see time/date stamp at the start of this thread)
    At the end of the week, The Judge (last week's Winner) will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible. (Judge has 24 hours to make decision)
    The 1st place Winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the Judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create new theme)

    How about self-created sci-fi tech? This is a lighting, art direction and prop test from my forthcoming sci-fi thriller (if I can ever get the funding for it.) Everything in the photo I created myself including the photo itself, of course.

    We are so surrounded by tech nowadays, even if we want to avoid them.

    Ok here I go. I am not the best at judging so I am going to do my best. I really enjoyed everyone's pictures.

    Great shot to start the thread. I have been wanting to take a trip to DC to see this in person. I love this shot.

    Cool shot. My only issue with this shot is the blown out reflection but a great composition

    Beautiful shot. I love how you got the iridescent glow on the watch.

    I really enjoy all of your photographs. I love this one. The old cameras and the old prints. Very well done.

    Cool shot but I think it's lacking something. Maybe a different angle would have been better.

    Great shot. A place I hope to visit someday. Very well composed and I love the fog as well.

    Very cool shot. It's not often that we get to see whats inside our gear.

    A shot of the most pressed button that I use on a daily basis. Just like before I think it needs a different angle to make it pop more.

    Awesome. I would love to hear more about this movie you are making. Just looking at this makes me want to know as much as possible about it.

    Nice shot. My mom had one just like this. Brings back lots of memories of my mom typing on it.

    I love cityscapes. This is very well done.

    I love this shot. Love the shallow depth of field. I am a little distracted by the object in the lower left corner.

    A very cool piece of tech. I never learned how to read them but I love this one.

    This makes me ask the question what is being made? Another cool piece of tech to help make other cool pieces of tech.

    Great shot! I see the afterburners on so this guy must of been going very fast and to get such a sharp shot of it must of been very hard. Very well done.

    I love old planes. I just feel that this shot is missing something. The background is a little distracting.

    Very cool shot. I know one photographer who's name I cant remember right now that has a similar cover photo.

    Now that is old school. Great shot of a vintage piece of tech.

    Very hard to pick a top 3 but here is my choice

    3rd MacRy
    2nd Genshi
    1st Acearchie

    Congrats to the winners.

    Wow really wasn't expecting this with all the other great entries! Been really busy this week so had to use an older photo! Didn't think it would end up winning!

    Will have a think and post something later today.

    Well done to everyone else!
