Mini Challenge #66 - All About Music

This challenge is about anything of/to related to music.

Example - musicians, instruments, concerts, songbook, Ipod's, whatever.

I will be looking for something striking, unusual and new.

The challenge begins now, and ends on December 14th 2008.

If a post is made with the date of December 15th 2008, those photos will be disqualified.

Winner and runner-ups to be announced approximately Dec 15 or 16

Good Luck !

GENERAL RULES

1. Have fun sharing and seeing what others share!
2. The host supplies a topic and you post 1-3 images. The host judges the winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd) and is not eligible to enter.
The 1st place winner then chooses the next topic, judges the winner and passes on the baton to the new champion.
3. Any photo you’ve taken is eligible, regardless of when taken or camera used.
4. Any amount of post-processing is allowed. However, it is helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo.
You may comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you some critique or criticism, put an asterisk (*) next to the title of the image.
5. * The winner has up to three days (72 hours) to begin a new mini-challenge, or the honor goes to the #2 finisher and so forth.


Guidelines:
1. Enter 1-3 photos and put them in a single post.
2. Either embed your image in the thread or, if you must, supply a link to it. Keep in mind, however, most people don't want to click to open photos hosted elsewhere (i.e. on your website).
3. Also try and resize your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll (~800 pixels on the longest side works best.)
4. Give each image you enter a title.
5. Enjoy discussion with members about their images, don't let this just be an entry thread!
6. Don't be hesitant, share'em and enter!

    I knew you would come up with something great, Donna! I especially like the first one.

    Gotta amend that. I love the third one too. Altogether a wonderful set.

    NICE PYRY! Love this one. IMO, best so far on the thread. Only one issue I have with it... now I have to think of something new to enter.

    Glad to see another vinyl-phile here, pyry! wings.gif I love the angle and your tack-sharp capture of the needle with the nice DOF.

    P.S. I hope you'll forgive my similar entry...but I submitted it before I saw yours! ne_nau.gif

    Thanks :D

    the record is a limited pressing in clear ice-blue vinyl, of my friend's band, Denali, from Richmond, VA. They are (were) kind of Portishead-meets-Radiohead with a female singer. The sound is cold, dark, and remote, like the sound of bells and distant voices in rarefied air...
