*** Mini-Challenge 344 -- Tools ***
Oct 18, 2012

At first I would like to thank Dave for hosting the previous challenge and choosing my shot as the winning one!

The title of the next challenge is "Tools". By this I would like you to shows us photos of some sort of tool. It can be a hammer, ratchet, file, micrometer, tape measure, shovel... whatever you feel like. It can also be some sort of equipment that you or someone else uses as a tool to get the job done. Feel free to interpret the idea of a tool as you wish, but I would like to see photos where you get the idea without any extra explanations needed.

I will judge the photos by the overall image appearance, such as composition, how the subject is shown, not necessarily on technical aspects. Any special idea or interpretation of the subject will affect positively on the judging

So let's see some of your "Tools" then, let the games begin!

This challenge ends officially at 8pm C.E.T. (GMT +2), Thursday, October 25, 2012.

Standard Rules

The host gives you a topic of interest. You post a maximum of three images. Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera.

You can do all the post processing you want. However, it is most helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo (because we like to know).

Feel free to comment on other contestant’s images. If you want people to give you constructive criticism, ask for C&C.

The host chooses the winner. The host's decision is final. The host is not eligible.

The winner then hosts the next challenge, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person. The winner has 48 hours to post the new challenge. If that doesn't happen 2nd place has 24 hours to do so, and if that doesn't happen it's up to the 3rd place winner.

Posting Guidelines

When posting your picture, change the Subject of your post to display your picture titles and/or your name. This way, when someone replies it will refer specifically to you. If all entries read "Re: * Mini-Challenge xxx - ... " it would be very boring to scan the list.

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).

You may enter up to 3 pictures, but put them in a single post. Please give a title to each photo, this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments.

Please size your photo no bigger than around 1200 pixels on the longest dimension. This is to let those with smaller monitors to see your image at full resolution. Please limit the file size of your entries to conserve bandwidth.

As a show of courtesy, and to save bandwidth, please remove the original post when replying, so you don't bring back any previous photos.
