This is the May 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!

I made a cloth bag to draw monsters from. Eldritch Horror is the first game it was used for, but you could use it for all Mythos games where you draw monsters. It's pretty big with a 4 inch diameter and is about 6 inches tall, plenty of monsters can fit in there. I put the elder sign on the bottom to try and seal them in. The outside has embroidered tentalces on a blue/watery fabric. It's image id# is 2012307 if you want to take a look.

Sorry to use the same reflection thing from last month, but I like the way this one turned out. My kids are just getting into Skylanders and they were also talking about making puzzles. I did some pictures which we then used to order some custom puzzles from printerstudio.com (really good quality puzzle, by the way, although a bit too glossy). I also just recently got some colored gels for my speedlights that I wanted to play with. Here I have Ninjini sitting on glass which is propped up about 6 inches off the table with a black sheet of foamcore board in the background. Off behind me to the right I have speedlight #1 with a purple gel zoomed out to 120mm and about 6-8 feet from the subject to get the more defined shadow. Out to the left of the figure is speedlight #2 with a blue gel and slightly reduced power to just add an extra little color to her edges. I think I also had a snoot on #2 so the blue wouldn't splash over onto the background. And so I could say snoot. Enjoy!



* From the rules it sounds like video game and RPG stuff is cool, even though the 'Add Item' option only shows 'Board Games'. If I'm misreading this and it's supposed to limited to board games, I can remove this.
