On Friday, my brother and I launched our very first bro-down, a friendly little photographer competition in which we each took eight photos of the same things, put them up on Single Dad Laughing, and you all voted on which were best (without knowing whose were whose). The goal… be the big dawg on top. The king of the camera. El Jefóte.
Well, the results are in… 16 photographs. 14,272 votes. Before the contest we decided winner would be he who had the most total votes. So here we go…
First was the 20-minute macro shot.
The winner: Dan with the weird alien plant thingie!
1364 votes to 442 votes!
Next up was the cemetery shot.
The winner: Dan with weathered crucifix!
941 votes to 841 votes!
Next up was the dew drops on grass/leaves.
The winner: Eric with the more spherical drops!
945 votes to 868 votes!
Next up was the sunset photographs.
The winner: Eric with the more purplish, less orangish sunset!
1347 votes to 462 votes!
Next up was the tiny frog the kids found.
The winner: Eric with the frog on the mirror!
1039 votes to 837 votes!
Next up was the “Fun with Photoshop” images.
The winner: Eric with the spikey haired melon!
1094 votes to 58. votes!
Next up, the Highland Cows.
The winner: Eric with the awesome triple cows!
936 votes to 845 votes!
And last but not least, the human eye…
The winner: Dan with the closer-up reflection shot!
1456 votes to 272 votes!
But in the end, there could only be one king of the camera, and this round goes to…
7,356 votes to 6,916 votes!
Nice try little brother. Maybe on the next Bro-Down….
