This is the February 2018 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 large] 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.


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 on BGG during the month in question.

4) Images from your User Gallery are not eligible, but images from any other Gallery on BGG that has successfully passed the image modding process of BGG 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 by giving them the link to this list. 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.

10) This contest is open to all subdomains 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.


I'll close the contest around April 1st.


Prizes paid by BGG

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


PS- Want to be involved 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!

Security note for your own safety: This photo is a shot from a real crime scene and may contain scenes of violence! Therefore it is suitable for adult viewing only!

A big giant donut (together with his accomplice, an oversized napkin) escaped from Ole’s Donut Shop! The local police had no choice but to eat up the suspect!

An image I've had for a bit, but it was in bad shape and needed some serious correction for some defects and odd JPG artifacts that came from the low-light shooting. It does look very cool larger, as the gradient of the Death Star shows up better (makes a heck of a desktop background, anyway). Submitted last month...

Just a painted miniature:



I set up three flashes for this series of photos, set them to manual, dispersed the two from the left and the right through a white sheet of paper (and turned up their power accordingly because the paper was thick, left more than right) and pointed a third flash at the ceiling for bounce. The background is regular black paper, a couple A3 sheets scotch taped together.

The camera used is an Olympus E-M5 MkII on a tripod, the lens an Olympus 60mm f/2.8 macro set to f/7.1.

Only uploaded one image this year. It's OK, I think. The shadows are a little darker than I'd like, but shows off some nice texture on the board and detail in the pieces.

Well... I normally make better images, but it have been so long since I last made an image for BGG at all - and I kind of liked the luck that this game pulled by actually making a random option that made sense!

I know this won't get many votes, but still here it is...
