Neil Blackwood ... this week's champ!

Nice going guys. Terrill and Neil had quite a battle for the lead. Neil edged Terrill out by one vote, but I have to say that both were great shots.

You guys have me scared to get back in to the frey. You've gone way beyond my skill level!

I like the way everyone is showing some differences in their approach. I can almost tell who's image it is when I first open the pic up. Nice styles coming through.

Well done men!


Alex

Congrats, Neil!

That's as cool a knife as there is!

And a nice showing by all. This was fun!

Thanks Guys

For some reason, I chose that photo because it didn't have my usual, normal, natural background and a lot of light. That grey thing behind the knife is an absorbant pad for soaking up shop oil/hazmat spills To me the photo had kind of a cold, somber feeling to it :evil I don't often have them turn out that way and probably couldn't again if I tried

I voted for Mr. Doggett. I guess it was the composition :cool:

Thumbs up

Neil, you had a great shot. The angle MADE you look at the knife. Now you do understand that the winner sends the knife in the photo to the runner up. (New rule I forgot to tell you guys about.)

Very nice Neil. The angle was excellent particularily since you were able to keep the whole knife in focus. Nice depth and I would not have guessed the HazMat background cloth.
