While taking photos of my old turntable with a vinyl record on it and listening to my I-Pod, a bulb appeared over my head :) A turntable and an I-Pod what an ODD combination. Why not join the ODD challange?

Hello! I see this is your third entry to the challenges! Welcome!

This is a perfect example of the Odd Couple, your idea was perfect. So why didn't you win a ribbon? Well, as most of the comments said, the lighting is a bit off. I thought the same thing when I first saw this. If there was a way you could have put a white backdrop over the record player and really bumped up the lights on this and sharpened the focus just a touch this could have blown the others out of the water. If you ever try to redo this shot I would love to see the results.

Hope my comments help and good luck in future challenges!

Thanks a lot Deannda, your comment was very very helpful. I was trying to figure out what was wrong with the lightning and how to correct it. You explained it so well. I will try another shot with your suggestion. There are lots to learn for a newbie like me :)

Great idea and nicely captured. My only thing is the yellowish on the ipod. I guess Id' have to see it with a differnt white balance, perhaps, to decide if it's an issue.

That's something my dad would do..."This iPod doesn't work!". Nice interpretation and I like the perspective. Nicely done.
