Thanks to everyone who submitted photos and commentary! I really enjoyed seeing everyone's machines. It definitely took me a while to whittle down the responses to my favorites.

Honorable Mentions

sherstone - Gear Fly
Brilliantly creative. I love it.

SimpsonBrothers - Edelbrock
Ok, might technically be against my rules, but still worthy of mention.

1934 Morgan Superior - Inorm
Ditto to the above.

Trains - davev
I found myself choosing mostly detail shots, but these trains are beautiful

Gears of Time - MikeK
Nice detail and lighting. Very crisp.

Balloon - StueveShots
I really like the reflections and depth of field.

Greenhouse Irrigation - ghinson
What a complex system. Nice B&W conversion.

3rd Place

Orange peeler - photo-bug
Simple machine, really like the composition and the glowing orange(?). :clap

2nd Place

Gunner - silvereye
In the first post and I wasn't sure it would be beat.... Gritty and such a unique perspective. :clap:clap

1st Place

Blue Train - KevXman
Wow. Great sense of motion and duotone conversion. :clap:clap:clap

    WOW! What a way to start the day. Thank you Chris! With all of the great images submitted I know it was a hard choice, but to pick Blue Train as the winner.... I'm still a little shocked. Everyone here does great work and I'm humbled anytime I even get a mention.

    I already have an idea for the next challenge and will try to get the thread posted later today. For those of you who just can"t wait that long, think Lone Sentinel.

    Thanks again everyone.

    Enjoy today, tomorrow is not guaranteed.
