Weekly challenge #320 - Lost in gadget
Posted By: mtux, 03-28-2015, 09:40 PM

Thanks everyone for letting me host a Weekly challenge, as it is my first one, I apologize for any mistake in advance.

The theme for this week is "lost in gadget" where the gadget could be cellphone, tablet or any kind of gadget which we see in hands of people nowadays.
It's interesting for me, when I walk in the street or in a shopping mall and see many people alone or in group, too much busy with their phone or tablet or ... (I do it sometimes myself too, and I'm not an alien out of this planet )
And it's still an interesting thing for me on the street. So I'd like to see your photos of people being lost in their gadget. (The person could be stranger or a friend)

Here are some examples from me:






But you be creative, and show us your interpretation of the topic!

The small print:
The contest will run until Saturday April 4th 2015.

Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.
Everyone is eligible to send in their best interpretation of the given theme, as long as the photo is taken with a Pentax/Samsung camera. Themes can be subject-oriented or technique-oriented.

Rules
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax (or Samsung DSLR) camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

Here is a pic I posted in another forum. It's a 600mm mirror lens on a K3 body.

Some bloke in Sydney, Australia. Lost in the music.

I love all the different interpretations!

There's still time to enter, as I'm going to close the thread about 14 hours later than this comment! (It will be around 12pm Sunday, Malaysia time, but I'm sure somewhere in the world it will be still Saturday)
