Welcome to BGG Picture Picks. This is a chance for people to show off the images they upload to the system.
This is the List of 2007 Picture Picks Contest Winners.

And this is the List of 2008 Picture Picks Contest Winners.


The winners from last month are shown in the first List comment. (I do this to keep the List Header small.)

HOW IT WORKS:

This is the list for JULY 2008. Anyone is invited to submit a single picture they uploaded to a Game's Image Gallery during July 2008 (Designer and Publisher Image Gallery images are also eligible). Users can then vote (give a thumbs up) to the one(s) they really like. Whoever gets the most votes will win geekgold! YES!! geekgold

Three prizes will be awarded:

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

In case of a tie, the prize will be split equally among all the tied people.

In addition, there will be 5 Participation Prizes of 5 geekgold

MANY THANKS TO ALDIE AND TIPPERS FOR PROVIDING PRIZES!!

The rules are in the comments, so read those too when you get the chance.

For now, go check out your July 2008 pics and submit the one you like best!
(Use [imageid=xxxxxx medium] in the body of the List Entry to show the image at a reasonable size as that helps people judge your image better.)

And don't forget to click on the pics you like and give the actual images thumbs up as well!

*Sorry this didn't get published till this late.

And before awkward questions get asked: gamephotos is gone and asked me to publish this in his stead.

MY most thumbed image to date, and one that took a few submissions to get past the mod's.

IF you concentrate hard enough you can just make out there is a circle around the Yinsh piece that is Rejected: out of focus depth of field.

Van Helsing looks towards the gathering shadows...

I don't normally upload photos, mostly because I don't think that mine are worth bothering people with. This is my one and only picture uploaded. We were in the middle of the game -- the light was right -- the setting was right -- presto!



Also, the "Add Item" system is not working very well at all on Firefox nor Safari in OS X.

It's been awhile since I've uploaded an image but this one seemed to do pretty well in July.

I think Box Covers are useful. I understand that doesn't make them glamorous.

I just liked how this image turned out - with the backlight really highlighting the green train.

I humbly submit for your consideration "An Homage Using Plastic Risk Cubes - 1968 Edition":



Some interesting (-ish) points:

1 - This came *close* to how I envisioned it, but I couldn't *quite* get the the final image to match what I had in my brain. In my head, it's much more vibrant. This is because:

2 - This was much, much harder than it looks. Props to gamephotos for the quality he achieved on the obvious inspiration to my photo. And while I love the dimples, they do nasty things with light.

3 - If you cross your eyes *just right* you will see...

...a slightly different arrangement of cubes.
