Hello fellow Mu-43ers!

A picture of mine got through to the final where the winner is selected by both jury and public votes. The prize is a brand new Olympus E-M10. My girlfriend is trying to make the switch from the huge (pun intended) Canon 5Dmk2 world to our beloved m4/3 and this camera would be the perfect start. So I guess I'm asking you guys to vote my picture (#6) if you want to help me out or if you think it really is the best photo in the final. I don't mind which ever is the reason... :biggrin:

Link to the contest: http://www.soundi.fi/kilpailut/aanesta-parasta-rockvalokuvaa
-> Below the pictures is a "Paras kuva on numero"-text with a dropdown menu where you can choose the number and below it is a "Lähetä vastauksesi"-button which will register the vote. That's it - no registeration or anything. The voting ends on 5th May.

I really appreciate any help I get from here since it's (partly) a popularity contest and those are really hard to win - at least without proper marketing... :smile:

My picture is #6.

Boy am I disappointed. I was looking for photos of rocks! ;)

Great capture of Springsteen and band! There is a lot of good challengers but being a classic rock fan myself yours earns the pick from me. :D

At least I assume i voted for you - for all I know i just signed up for a Finnish Tupperware party.

Thanks. I'm pretty sure you'll get your first batch of Tupperware in a couple of weeks... Just send me the bill when you get it. :biggrin:

Done, and it was my favourite so I feel 'clean'. Springsteen was the only one I had heard of ... must be my age

The commentary about the photos is pretty harsh.
OzRay, you're right. Nowadays we seem to have a negative culture here in Finland. It's kind of cool the more harsh you are or the more stupid comments you share on Web. It's like something is away from yourself if you don't push others down. And if you say something positive you are kind of sissy yourself. I really don't like it, but that's life :S

That seems to be the pattern here in Oz as well. I don't use it, but the stuff I've seen copied from Twitter is unbelievable.

I didn't even know there was comments as well (I have "NoScript" on in my Firefox and it blocks ads/comments/etc by default). And I think it's a good thing that the comments-sections are off by default since nowadays most comments are negative and puts you in a bad mood. A good example is www.43rumors.com...
