AN XBOX SYSTEM WITH KINECT!
But that’s not all. After I asked them *super* nicely, they agreed to throw in Noah’s two favorite games.
A little while ago, we put away Cabela’s hunting game for good and started playing NAT GEO instead. It’s so fun (even for me!), and Noah loves becoming his favorite animals and learning about nature in such an interactive way. If you don’t have this game yet, you should definitely get it. Learn more about it and see a video about it here.
I always thought it would be so cool to be on Sesame Street when I was a kid, and as a dad, I always thought it would be so cool if Noah could as well. Thanks to amazing visionaries, he gets to do just that (and really loves every minutes of it) in the Sesame Street interactive episodes. Whether it’s becoming part of Elmo’s World, counting with Grover, or any other number of things, it makes me feel so good as a dad to mix his love of video games with valuable learning. Learn more about it and see a video about it here.
The winners are announced below and were the two photographers with the most votes overall on their individual photo. That means they beat out everyone! As promised, if Eric or I won either of them, we’ll be donating our prize to families in real need this Christmas (probably via Sub for Santa).
AND NOW, THE RESULTS:
As Dan’s arch photographic rival, and co-host of SDL’s Bro-Down photography competitions, I have the privilege of announcing the winners of last week’s contest. I’m Eric, Dan’s better looking brother. We live thousands of miles apart and whenever we do manage to get together, we come out with our trigger fingers blazing, ready to prove who is still king of the camera!
In Bro-Down I and Bro-Down II, we kept it in the family and only competed against each other. This time, however, was different. This time we invited you to compete against us! With 10 categories to choose from, nearly 1000 amazing photos were submitted. After much debating and a couple rounds of paper-rock-scissors we finally narrowed each category down to one photo that would line up against our entries.
After an amazing 15,547 votes on our main competition, here are the results:
Category: Black & White
Category: Depth of Field
We decided beforehand that the winners of the two Xbox Kinects and games would be the two photos with the most votes. It’s a good thing too because I won one of the top spots by edging Dan’s Abstract out by a mere 7 votes with my water shot! Unfortunately both of us were absolutely creamed by Christie Hobson with “A Little Help!” Congratulations Christie on submitting the photo with the most votes. Enjoy your Xbox Kinect. I’ll be donating mine to a family in need this Christmas.
In the spirit of brotherly competition and ribbing, I won again! Your combined total may have been 315 more votes than mine Dan, but I won I won! I also had the two lowest scoring photos but that is 2 out of 3 for me!
Thanks to all who participated by submitting photos and voting on them. You made this competition awesome! Page 2 has the winners of both the Split-Decision and Honorable Mention categories so make sure to see who took the glory home!
I’ll be visiting home for Christmas so keep your eyes peeled for another Bro-Down coming soon. (If Dan’s not too scared now!)

P.S. Now that you’ve seen the results, do you agree with them? Do you think any of the photos got a raw deal? Which one would you hang on your wall?
