I was going to enter a shot of an old camera,when I realised that it was absolutely not original and that I was going to get a 4 again!...So I decided to shoot this old coffeemill,which has been in the room for years(I still don't know why it's there)and I thought it was a less common subject than the film camera...I like this pic a lot.

warmer colours or sepia tones would have invoked more of that nostalgic feeling

I normally whine about photographers using B&W as it's often done for no real reason. However, I think you made a great choice using it here. It really shows off the contrast between the lighted and shadowed sides of the mill. I also really like your choice of perspective. Great shot.

Lighting a bit harsh for my taste
