"Seeing a need that needed to be filled, by the power vested in me as President and Treasurer of the Society of Overly Analytical Lens Assessors, I have organized the first photography contest for photogeeks.
Entering is simple: just send a jpg (100% non-resized, of course) to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a note telling me what category you’re entering and any pertinent positives about the shot. You know – how many copies of the lens you tested and sent back before choosing this one, what type of laser-rangefinder focusing device you used, or how you hand-carved a wooden lens mount so you could use the 1945 Soyuz f/0.45 x-ray lens you get at a flea market on your NEX camera after you’d disassembled it to clean out the fungus.
I’ll post the entries after making sure they meet the criteria."
