Kodak DX7590       4th place, 141 points
1/59s, f6.3, ISO 1600, 441mm, Manual, Pattern, no flash
Post-Processing: usm, resize       Extra Info: after all the moves we made, i thought these were long gone and forgotten. then one christmas years ago mom gave me a cigar box full of my matchbox cars that she had held onto. they saw a lot of action in their day. my favorite is the cops on the bike with sidecar. (no one to play with so they stay in their cigar box inside a plastic storage bin)

    This was my top favorite. I love the rich colors, the lighting, and just the collection of such old and beautiful toys.

    hey thanks for the comments.

i went online to look at prices for some of these. it is so ironic that had i kept the little boxes they came in (and hardly ever played rough with them) they could fetch a nice sum. i much prefer the memories of playing with these. priceless to me.

    This one is a bit too dark for my taste. I am not sure what the large blue object is in the top center. Fine subject for the challenge though.

    Great idea to leave them as is and not arrange them. Love the mix and the colour and the good memories.

    I was lucky to keep the Matchbox toys and have passed them on.
like the picture as the toys are not laid out like a funeral parlour but ready for the imagination apart from being a bit dark all ok

    Nice job! Wonderful lighting, nothing washed out, good detail. Even the dirt/sand on the mixer truck is still in place. Looking at the condition of some of them makes me know you had many hours of fun with them. My wife still has our sons matchbox cars and now our grandkids are playing with them!

    Great collection of old toys. I'm so glad they were saved. Like the composition and the way they fill up the whole photo.
