Hey Pete - a very worthy winner indeed, great shot that one. Well done to the runners up too, what an excellent challenge. I would like to thank Ellie for choosing such a super theme for challenge #7.

I am looking forward to challenge #8 and hope to get the time to enter this one.

Wow, that's the first photo-anything I have won!!

As soon as I saw the title I had these props in mind:) It was a ten minute shoot with one of those flu-tube inspection lamps up close as the main illumination. I cleaned the shiny stuff and spent most of the time tweaking the position to get the right composition and reflections in the chrome. Finally, convert to B+W partly because it suited the subject, partly because flu-tube lighting does no-one any favours!

OK, there will be a very short pause while I pick a subject and quiz Ellie how one organises one of these :-)

Thanks folks

Pete

Congratulations
Your shot hit me straight away especially the sharpness of the compass.
Im glad I was thinking with the majority with my voting. :D
Looking forward to the next challenge where hopefully I will be brave enough to enter an image myself.

Apologies to Rod Souter, whose picture "Geo-bridge" came joint 3rd. I somehow managed to miss out your name. :o

Well done Pete!

I find it interesting to see people's interpretation of subject matter - I might have entered if I'd had any imagination :D:D!

Well done to all those who entered too - I take my hat off to you *chr

Thanks folks for all the nice comments!

There were a whole set of striking pictures this month. Excellent stuff everyone that took part :)


Meanwhile, I have set up the new challenge running from 1st to 31st of this month, so dust those sensors off** and get shooting :-)
