Ebbtide has a fantastic "sellers" photograph. If I was selling this knife, I'd want this picture.
It does a nice job showing the knife and the extra nice sheaths add to the package. Clean and crisp all the way.
Had to go with MVPeterson's photo. Clear, accurate nicely contributed with antlers- I know I'm getting that knife and that sheath. Ebbtides is very good too but only thing is there are 2 sheaths- am I getting both shown sheaths with the knife??
I went with Bush Monkey. From an artistic standpoint, the knife's design and intended use is brought out well with the chill of the black and white. Combined with the concrete floor I think it looks great. I could leave or take the gun. I don't think it hurts it because of the whole theme, but I would rather see a little more of the knife and less of the gun...if that makes sense.
First, before stopping and studying each picture at length, I scrolled through the thread quickly to see which ones grabbed my attention.
I liked Buddy's picture quite well. I also liked Fred's Edge picture very much.
I voted for Ebbtide though. The picture was very clear and crisp and the colors and brightness caught my attention immediately and forced me to stop longer than I intended. It invoked that knee jerk response of going back for another look. Studying the picture closer confirmed the thoughts I already had at a quick glance.
Ebbtide got my vote. It's a good clear picture that is balanced both light to dark and through the color spectrum. The image is free of major defects and does everything right to help the viewer 'like' the knife. There were some other nice photos too - something to like in every one!
Winner Week 1 Photo Contest... Ebbtide...
the focus across the entire image is sharp and the colors of everything against a black and white knife nails it.
