just shut it down now Andrew, that's just TOOO Precious for anyone else to even consider competing with.

well unless I take one of mine outside and shove it in the snowbank and put some fake plastic trees around it...( as if)

but really?

that picture should be on a National Geographic cover or something. :arrow :cheers :guitar :beer
"Senior" member means "old" right?
Like over 50?

Too many guitars to list here.
Too few brain cells to be bothered with...

Beauty of a Uke for sure. We all have different tastes and no offence to Steve as I think I might be i the minority - but I dont like the pic at all. Wrong season, (for most of us) overly staged...... sorry being honest

No offense to Steve, and it is a beautiful uke, but the staging is a problem....
Uke - beautiful
Pineapples - inviting and delicious
Sago palm - poisonous, unfriendly plant. We had two of them and they were a b!tch to get rid of.

I hope nobody asks the question about why are folks losing interest in the GOTM anymore.

so where did the picture go?
oh well, thanks for the brief look.

nobody complained when I staged my Goldtop with the airstream trailer, in fact they put it  on the Larrivee FB page titled "Heavy metal".

to some degree, I stage all my shots and have had more than my share of GOTM pics.

oh well, can't please 'em all.....

What's wrong with staging a photo?  Isn't that what photography is about?  I loved that uke pic!  Let's have fun, guys....not everything needs to be so serious.   :donut :donut2

Jesus I did not intend to offend. Might be time I packer in! Way too serious for me folks!!!!!!!! Last thing I ever wanted was to impede someone from participating, I only posted in response to the suggestion the photo was a slam-dunk - I just didn't feel it was - we all are entitled to an opinion and vote.

Agreed but at least to me they didn't look staged, Its just my opinion FFS. Some don't like photos without Larrivee Headstocks I remember being articulated before. Gonna take my Uke-Pic and go home..................

Put a new pic with no sago palms and I would consider it for my vote.
Too many painful associations with sago palms.

In fact there's no leaves on our deciduous trees, cuz they're covered in snow! :cheers

First I like Kevins guitars pix.Next I liked Steve's pix also.Last Every pix that the GOTM has shown has had some sort of stagging with and without plants.I understand not liking some plants I personnally  don't like poison ivy or oak but its just a pix.There have been some pix that I've burned due to my image was in them that I never wanted anyone to ever see.

Call PM me I may be able to help

All of a sudden we seem to have gotten testy with one another.  The GOTM has evolved from the days when a photo was just chosen by an administrator to where it is today with nominations and member voting each month.  It has never really gotten that much attention and last month there were only a dozen votes.  The same winners keep coming up every few months because of the lack of participation.  Is the G.O.T.M  D.O.A. ?  I don't know.  I hope not.
