    So here's the deal... There's a photography contest in a Finnish camera store's website. I've sent a picture I took in Edinburgh, Scotland a few weeks ago. The TOP-10 most voted pictures get into finals and the jury selects the winner. The winners gets a Canon EOS 600D.

    I'd like to win this contest so my girlfriend can upgrade her old Canon 350D to a better 600D. In other words, I'd sell the 600D to her for a modest fee and buy some m4/3 gear for myself... :biggrin:

    Obviously I'm not demanding you guys to vote but I'd preciate if you think my picture is worth voting. The voting can be done by clicking the big plus sign on this page: Rajala Pro Shopin kuvakilpailu

    I voted for the static electricity in the orb (what are those things called again?) - hope that was the right one! It *is* a very nice image. Good luck!

    Well, you made me feel selfish now... :biggrin: She's about to buy a Canon 5D mk2 and I though she wouldn't "settle" for that 600D anyways. When I told her about the contest and said I would sell the camera to buy me some m4/3 gear (if I won), she said she wouldn't mind trying the 600D to see if that would be sufficient for her. So we came to a compromise where we both would get something we want. :biggrin:

    And yes, it's the "electric orb" picture. Thanks for the votes. :cool:
