I really wanted to try doing some lightpainting using my phone and the Penki app, but it just didn't work out. Check out my best attempt below...  Instead I put the old Lens Baby on my camera and ended up with a fairly decent photo. While not quite as sharp as I would have liked, I really like the pattern and colors as well as the lovely warping provided by the lens.

Just posted a DDP DFK screenshot...Kinda psychedelic actually!

As everyone will notice, theres an effect on the pic. The effect is built into my iTouch 4th gen camera. Just for proof, I'll provide a link to the app installed.

I'm liking everyone's photos so far. :righton:

Cool! That was my second favorite pic (#1 was Dave K.'s and #3 was dorakyura?s). Congratulations, Monouchi!

Wow, thanks.
Im really surprised that I won.
When I saw Daves pic I was sure I lost against that insane bullet pattern, and he managed to take that pic playing on PCB as well.

My favourite pic in the competition is dorakyura?s cos it looks like a painting.


...I also took 158 pictures with my camera before I found one picture that I was satisfied with.

Congrats man. Yours was my second choice, but only as there's nobody sitting at the cabinet.  :laugh:

Congrats to Monouchi for winning! There were so many good entries, it was def a good competition.

Also, thanks EOJ for the shout out, although I'm not sure my entry deserved it  :-[. Glad you liked it nonetheless!

Congrats Monouchi!  You set the bar very high with that pic.  I was originally going to post just a close up of a PS final boss bullet spread, but then decided at the last minute I had to incorporate more of the cab and artwork to even get to your level.  ;)  I have a lot of extra pics as well, and will post some runner-up's later this week.

Great review on all the other pics, they were all fantastic!

Wow, I'm flattered to see my humble submission getting a vote ? cheers emphatic! And of course thanks to all the mods for running this competition. Congrats Monouchi!

What's next? A custom stick competition? I feel I know who might win that one ... ;-)

As a moderator I couldn't compete, but here's a picture I took for laughs.



I made a fake titlescreen in Photoshop and displayed it in the 360's Picture viewer. So the photo itself is real, just added a bit sharpness as the camera sucks.

Congrats Monouchi! Your picture was also my favourite - at least until Dave_K entered the competition, then I thought there had to be two winners.
The composition in your photo (poster, cab, bullet pattern) is very well-chosen, but I am too weak not to fall for Pink Sweets' stunningly colorful final pattern and the slightly illuminated art beneath it finally convinced me. Still I'm flattered that I actually got a vote, cheers for that  =D

dorakyura?s was by far my favorite.
I could see that being a cover for a SHMUP album!  :lol:

Wow, looks amazing, considering all the artwork in that pic is faux.  ;)

Here were my two runner ups.
