Mechanical P       ©2016 bryanshoots
Panasonic DMC-LX7       2nd place, 178 points
1/50s, f1.4, ISO 400, 24mm, Aperture Priority, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Cropped, adjust exposure and flipped horizontally in Lightroom.       Extra Info: We have a typewriter lying around and took a shot of one of its typebars. I intentionally flipped the image since it is originally facing backwards.

    Congrats. Glad you overcame the hurdles.

    Thank you guys. I took this shot with my shaky left hand, while pressing down the P key with my right hand. I couldn't find the right tripod so I used ISO400 which is quite noisy with this type of camera. Plus the cropping reduced the quality a bit.

    Wow three points out of first place....now I feel guilty. Technically this is close to perfect.

    Beautifully managed depth of field and light. I like the colours and the mystery imparted by the blur. In my top 4 favourites.

    I hope you didn't damage your heirloom taking this shot! Great idea, and well presented. In my favs.

    Very nicely done, only critique is the P is slightly fuzzy, but still an excellent image. The composition is wonderful! Lighting is just right!

    Didn't think any of these existed anymore. Well done on blurring out background to focus on the P bar.

    Very creative and right on theme. I like the composition and the blurred background. The focus is a bit blurred. In my favourites.

    Well taken. This should do well in this field though I find the find a little less than striking (pun intended).

    Why didn't I think of this? Not that I have an old typewriter laying around. Very nice. Spot on theme.

    Clever idea - focus on the P seems a little soft.

    Good idea, but the P-key should be more sharply focused. Quite a grainy image.

    two great shots in the main (and neither are mine, boo hoo). i'm putting this right up at the top. the car and the electric razor shows a lot of technique but this shot works better for me. the light, the focus and bokeh, and the muted color come together to make this intriguing shot. well done.

    My overall favorite for its simplicity, originality and composition. Could use a tad more DOF to get both upper and lower case P's in focus. Not many of those old machines around these days.
