    Congrats Michael, a worthy winner.
May I also add that you have my total respect for your admission about your physical shortcomings.......... "I save old toothbrushes as they make an excellent cleaning tools for small parts."

    Congratulations on your win. My first choice too! Couldn't comment during voting but certainly would have said this was my no 1.

    Thanks for the support and comments, always appreciated.
An extra thank you for those who could accept the large vignette. I found the large area of white gave some balance to the dark and dirty tools. Also, it was unconventional and that always gives a bias to my approach :-)
The mess has been somewhat reorganised and I finally took the digital thermometer and it is now mounted above the fridge with the probe inside. Now I'm searching for its twin which is supposed to be for the freezer. I think I put it in a 'safe' place. LOL

    Nice job Mike! You separated yourself from the crowd with a great monotone rendering. Congrats on the win. Well deserved.

    Congrats, my #1. I still would like to see the white areas from left and right cropped out a bit more.

    Most all the other entries have the view of the drawer from the front. Your shot from the side works well for me. It's nice that you continued the view on the top of the cabinet. The mono tone works for me. Nicely done, up in my favs.

    Thanks for all the comments. I appreciate all the opinions.
I did try the conventional amount of vignetting and figured it would be more acceptable but I like to try different approaches, this extra wide one was my favourite.
I also tried a Sepia tone but found this "White Chocolate" filter in Topaz Adjust very appealing.
Cookie Jar - I save old toothbrushes (manual & electric) as they make an excellent cleaning tools for small parts.

    Very effective in sepia, and a great collection of "stuff"!! I would have liked to see the white vignette more evenly around all 4 sides, but still high in my TT.

    interesting picture and pp.

it feels like it should have been shown in portrait, not landscape

there are many interesting shapes and textures in the drawer - I think you could have shown them off more with a much tighter crop, just looking at a few items.

    Great shot and the sepia was a good choice.

    The duotone and vignette add visual interest to the presentation. Might consider a vertical composition shot from the front of the drawer.

    I like the sepia treatment, though the vignette is a bit overdone. Great detail and a wonderful mixture of stuff.

    Interesting treatment. I like the sepia. I have to ask why are the toothbrushes in this draw?

    Nicely presented jumble of 'junk'. I like the sepia tones and the vignette. High in my faves.

    What a nice manly drawer! I think the vignette is a bit too strongly applied.
