I've seen it done before so im not breaking any new ground here. Each time it was in a close race just like this...This is the worst pain EVER!

Still doesn't change the fact I disagree with it does it? People steal shit all the time, does that make it right?I think you have me confused with someone who is far less awesome.

I'm really surprised mtcham's didn't fare better on this one as well. Being an MPC and all... The fact that the background pics were all black and white, combined with the classy B+W shot of that sexy ass camera... perfect lighting... Damn. Splitter's shot had some real mood effect going on, like it was on a horror movie. I dig it. The winning shot on this one didn't quite do as much for me. Just looked like a shot of a keyboard. Came out well I suppose, but it didn't particularly grab my eye. To each his own. Congrats to the winnah

And no matter what I say can't change your mind. I'm sorry you didn't win. It's the Maggot photo contest, not the "only maggots that post in photo video photo contest". At least I didn't post it in social media and tell everyone to vote for a particular entry, which is kind of how you are trying to spin this...
Im just glad that im not the butthurt one this time. Like everyone here has told me many times before, better luck next time....This is the worst pain EVER!

congrats to capt. awesome
thanks to everyone that liked mine, and I agree, mtcham's response was a little surprising, but I guess not as much when there are so many quality, and as someone put it, polished entries.
unlike many MPC's (and voters this time around), I did see the theme represented well in each photo... some were obvious, some less so, but each had it IMHO.
the padded room tie-breaker thread I thought was a good idea. it only received 97 looks and the total vote numbers didn't sky rocket, but it probably served its purpose of breaking a potential impasse, though the moderator's vote is typically the tie-breaker I thought.
a great showing of an MPC, including some that got left on the editing room floor from the submission thread...
I'm excited for the next

Thanks! It was a close one, for sure. I'd sort of given up on it yesterday after the 3-way tie. I guess I had a last minute rally?
I'll have a new theme up by tonight.

Congrats to Captain Awesome for taking a close one. The happy feeling in the pants is all yours.
Nice work all the way around - I struggled with picking the top five and then struggled again picking my favorite from that group.
Looking forward to the next contest - Capt. Awesome, it's all yours from here...

And you're spinning this. Look, my point being is, why get all these people who don't normally give two shits to come in here, contribute, give criticism, enjoy them all the time come vote? How about you ask them to shoot instead of just vote? Like I said, it's just weird.
Congrats Capt. Awesome!I think you have me confused with someone who is far less awesome.

FWIW I really liked mtcham's photo, but I felt like the camera was cluttered in a little to tightly with the prints in the background. It just didn't have quite enough space around it.

CA for the win. Subject crushes.
