Sorry Mark 3 votes each is definitely not enough this time I think this is the most difficult challenge to chose just three images so far. Some really good images this month, well done everyone .

Now you really need to look at all of them, then slowly add point for accuracy to title, the composition, the difficulty in obtaining the photo, the use of colors, Dof, RoT, Golden Ratio, leading lines and much more

And of course the photo that broke all rules but looks fantastic.

but but...those are only for those after you selected those you like. Else how to shortlist with only 3 votes? It's just a suggestion anyway.

May's RoT is really hard. ALL of them submitted so far are superb.

Voting is complete.

Been busy for the last few days, but normal service will return tomorrow morning with results and commiserations, and gnashing of teeth for some of us...

April 2019 Photo Challenge: Old Technology

1st place-------snerkler------Technics SL 1210 Mk5------8 votes

2nd place------AMc-----------Thunderbird-----------------7 votes

3rd place =----David B-------Kettle------------------------6 votes

3rd place =----OM User------Where it all started---------6 votes

3rd place =----PDK42--------The Gaslight room----------6 votes

Runners up include Shaw with 5 votes, Alfbranch, Blu-by-u with 4 votes, Zuiko, Jonesy, Walti, Rocknroll and AJW with 3 votes, Wornish, 090657 with 2 votes, Phill D and Shenstone with 1 vote each. Partakers with no votes (only two of us) won't be mentioned (again)...

This has proved to be another popular challenge, with 18 entries. Voting went well, with 24 individual voters, placing 67 votes in all. Good to see the close competition, voting very evenly spread...

Congrats to snerkler, with a very colourful photo of his old turntable, no doubt coming back into fashion now. And to AMc with a b/w photo of an secret spy plane- SR71 called Thunderbird. And to David B with his Kettle, OM User with the original Olympus camera, and finally PDK42 with the Gaslight room.

Summary might follow in the next few days, but feel free to comment on all or any of the entries.

Re: April 2019 Challenge: Old Technology

Congratulations to Toby (Snerkler) on a very interesting shot. I'm ecstatic at getting a 3rd but it will probably go all wrong again in the next competition.
