****February Photo Contest Finals****

Welcome to the Final round to select the winner of the February Photo Contest!!
Please remember to keep this thread kicked for visibility! Thanks!

The theme this month was Back to the Future: Stuff that used to be considered the cutting edge of technology - things, places, etc which at one time were the awesome newest tech on earth and now are abandoned to the past.

These are the finalists based on the results of the two preliminary polls.

The winner of the contest agrees to host the next month's contest (or recruit someone else to host the contest), and pick the next month's theme. The host of the monthly contest cannot enter the contest they are hosting.


Note: This contest is posted in GD with permission from Skinner.

An entrant to this contest, by submitting a photograph, is giving permission for that photograph to be copied to Demopedia or to a linked Gallery and included in a DU Calendar that will display the photographs entered for this contest for the purpose of publicizing future contests and/or commemorating current and past contests. The entrant retains all other rights to the photograph being submitted. Neither Demopedia and/or a linked Gallery may use any photograph submitted for any purpose other than to display the photograph being submitted by the entrant, and neither gains any real or implied ownership rights to the photograph.

7. If the photo was taken in Oregon at Willamette Falls...

it's the site of the old powerhouse which generated the very first long-distance transmission of electricity in the US, about 10 miles to Portland, back in the late 1800s.

I'm not certain that's where this is, but it sure looks like it.

19. The sewing machine one is very disturbing and powerful.

 

I did not vote for it because I found it JUST WRONG. I learned to sew on my great-grandmother's treadle. A great photo but JUST WRONG.

Wonderful entries!
I love ones where it's hard to figure how they were done, but they all have great artistic merit.

#1 could be called: What is "old" is "new" again! (Wind Power) I voted for it because of the beauty and composition.
