Photo Contest Poll

Help me choose. I can't decide, I like them all even the ones that didn't fall in my category. One way to help narrow it down is to be a complete nazi about my theme, but I think most of these are close enough.

Good job guys, I have no fricking idea who's up next. Maybe I'll choose today!

Multiple choice, so choose your favorites, and it's public, so if you vote for yourself, you look cool.

1. Tony



2. Vivid



3. Vcook




4. Dr. D



5. Biggy



6. G2G



7. Lady Yamaha





8. Hunny



9. Saqc1



10. Gconsier



11. Burntash




12. MMRacing



13. Jammin



14. Paladin

My vote is for Tony because I think he really captured the gritty feeling that I think really fit your parameters. Vcook a very close second and MMRacing third for the wow factor. MMRacings pic would've been better without that other dude being in the pic. I really like Vivid's pic as well but it seemed too colorful and cheery for what I think really captures the "industrial" spirit.

That said, I really tried to find time to go out last week to get some good shots since I had some great ideas but I didn't get a chance. Everyone's pics are awesome though.

I wasn't destroying! I think I was trying to bleed the brakes, first time ever with no help. Slopar fixed that a day or two later.

I like Vcooks the best because I like how he caught the light rays coming into the garage. Very cool Chris.

I'm not a fan of b/w photos, but for some reason I like Tony's and it would be my 2nd choice.

I had to vote for me because I am me.

I know I could take major flack for this...
Let me first say.. Tony's shot is my favorite.. but I don't think it fits the contest..
I don't see it as being industrial...
Not that it matters.. Just my opinion...

Figure I'm gonna get shit for that cause he is kinda popular around these parts.. I'm not knocking the shot in the least.. I think it rocks.. I just wouldn't have posted it as an industrial shot as I think it looks more bleak and old timey... flame suit on

With the theme being "industrial" I had to go with Vivid. I think a wide-angle may have offered a more interesting perspective, but I like the framing.

Otherwise, I like Tony's from an artistic perspective. It illustrates a neat use of lighting and DOF.

I like that one as well.



Tony's is from a farm. I guess that's an industry.
