This is the April 2014 Picture of the Month contest.

How to submit an image?
Just add a geeklist item, where it asks for a ImageID add the number of your photo there. Use [imageid=xxxxxx medium] in the body of the List Entry, where "xxxxxx" is the ImageID number, to show the image at a reasonable size as that helps people judge your image better, and make sure to remove the space. If you have questions please geekmail me and I will help.

Rules:

1) You can only submit a single entry with only one image in it.

2) That image has to be one of your own. If you like Laura Foobar's picture of dogs playing Die Macher, ask her to submit it.

3) The image was uploaded during the month in question.

4) Images from your User Gallery are not eligible, but images from any other Gallery that has successfully passed the image modding process are eligible - Game, Designer or Publisher.

5) Users may vote for (give a thumb up to) as many entries as they wish.

6) Winners will be declared when the next month's list goes up.

7) You may not offer any kind of inducement/bribe to users in return for their vote(s), but you can invite other users to participate and vote. Feel free to spread the word!

8) Entries should not be edited once submitted

9) I will randomly reorder this list so that the first-come first-thumbed effect is lessened.

9) This contest is open to all sub domains on the geek, so lets see what the best images look like and remember if you really like the image to click on it and also give the original a thumb.


Prizes

First place: 50
Second place: 25
Third place: 10

PS- Want to be involved in in photo contests throughout the year or want to see all of the winners of previous years?
Then make sure you subscribe to this GeekList.

GOOD LUCK!

During a particularly disastrous solo game of Pandemic: In the Lab the little Lego minifig that I was using in place of the regular player pawn just kept smiling benignly.

She smiled away right up to, and including, the point where humanity was overwhelmed by cascading outbreaks of disease.

They explained everything in detail and at great length. After they finished I sat, despondent, contemplating a bleak and empty future. "I’m glad you’re depressed" said one. "It means you’ve understood the situation.”

I'm good friends with Patrick Nickell here in Tucson and was very happy to get a prototype copy of this upcoming game (currently on kickstarter - go back it!!!). I love the art, so this was just begging for a photo shoot. I also picked up a sheet of glass awhile ago and have been wanting to try some reflection photos, so this seemed like a good chance.

I was shooting with a 70-200 lens (in the low 100's I think) with a softboxed speedlight off to the right (here's a picture of the shoot if you're curious: http://boardgamegeek.com/image/2011689/miketuna). I cut out some little strips of cardstock folded into triangles and taped them to the cards as little stands (weighted down with a quarter). Pretty happy overall with how it came out, although I'm too much of a perfectionist to be totally satisfied. Mainly I wish I could rearrange a few of the cards to give the image more symmetry and get that red livestock card out of the limelight. Still, it was a super fun learning shoot.



Here's the kickstarter page for the game (featuring a familiar image) if you're so inclined: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/crashgames/yardmaster-r...
