    Lol... TBH, as far as I'm concerned, I wasn't paying much attention to that, but rather how good/well presented the overall pics were, and how the T/Ts themselves looked, and so essentially how much effort the owners had put into constructing the resulting image(s).

    The latter is an important point to consider, as to win this type of competition, it's not simply a case of plonking down your turntable, no matter how good it looks, and snapping a pic; it's about the backdrop chosen, the lighting, different camera angles/use of artistic flair, and the judicious application of all of that in creating the submitted entries, which is why some winners were awarded a prize, significantly for the effort they'd put in, in that respect.

    A small point, in terms of presentation, when posting pics of turntables, is that for me it *always* looks better to include pics with records on the platter spinning and playing, and the arm and cartridge 'in motion', as it were, rather than T/Ts simply sitting idle. Points will always be awarded for that, and also for nice clear, loving close-ups!

    Anyway, thanks again to all who participated. Congrats to the winners and to David for his generosity in awarding some nice prizes - oh and even though the competition's over, folks, keep the pics coming!

    Marco.
