    First of all a big Thanks! to all who send their entry.
    This is your contest!

    So please have a look on the great pictures below and give your vote by using the poll option!.You may leave a comment by a normal answer.

    The theme of this contest was "Animals" .
    Please vote the picture, where you like most the idea or the photographic talents shown.

    Don't just vote the watch you prefer!

    I will not be able to check, if somebody votes again in a different forum, but I would ask you kindly to limit your votes to one across the fora.
    I will give you two days, from now on to vote.

    Enough words, here we go:

    1) Guardian of Time:


    2) Diamonds are a girl’s best friend…:


    3) Promaster Pup:


    4) PUP WIS:


    5) What't the time?:


    6) Mickey'n'Seiko:


    7) Scary Monster (and super creep):


    8) Solar lemmings:


    9) DON'T go!!!:

    11) Playing with Roosa the cat:


    12) Turtle back:


    13) Keeper of the box:



    I deeply hope I did not miss an entry.
    If I did, I apologize, but I will probably have no time to make any correction.

    Cheers,

    Axel

    7, 12, 5, and 13 are all excellent, the respective photogs should be proud.

    That said, Seven's, hands-down, the best IMO.

    Hard choice between the 5 and 7. 5 is not easy to pull off photographically with the mirrored display and the wish seeing himself in the display as he would see himself in the watch glass. Also fish supposedly only have a memory or "now consciousness" of two seconds so the watch is nicely paradoxical in that context, although I don't know if the photog knew that.

    7 is formally strong because the colors and characters of the two main elements match very nicely. Even semantically with the monster watch name it's interesting. Also the proportions are nice. I would have liked to see the watch at five to twelve for an extra kick of detail.

    Otherwise, no. 8, the solar lemmings is very intelligent for the title because it eschews an animal altogether and turns the watches into animals by their sun loving properties. Very smart indeed. Photographically well done except the bad reflection on the PAW-2000 on the left. Pity. Not many people will be able to follow the degree of abstract thinking required here, so it won't get that many votes. A perfect counter example is the simplistic no. 1. Esthetically easily accessible, a title that makes sense and a cute kitty appropriate for the theme. However, just not as interesting when the standards are higher.

    The others are honorable but don't come close to those first three.

    I bet it's easier for you to count up the votes as well. No need to mark each post down one by one.

    You're right.
    But most of all, it's not about making things easier for me, it's about you feeling more comfortable as it's clearly your contest!

    Thanks again to everybody who participated, donated and voted!

    Cheers,

    Axel
