Show us your best Instagram shots of tech gear

It's been too long since we've seen CNET readers' amazing Instagram creations. Got any great gadget shots? Show them to us, filter fiends!

Last time we asked you to share your best Instagram shots, we were blown away by what we saw -- beautiful cityscapes from around the world, stunning portraits, ordinary objects made to look extraordinary.

It's been almost two years since we ran our five-part series on Crave readers' Instagram creations, and we want to know what amazing photographic feats you've been up to with the photo-sharing app since then.

Specifically, we'd love to see how you've gotten creative when it comes to images of tech gear.

Maybe you've captured the unboxing of a shiny new tablet or HDTV; a rendezvous between a cat and a floor-cleaning robot; a ridiculous cord tangle; or a smartphone screen that's had an unfortunate run-in with the pavement. Call them gadget porn shots, gadget glam shots, or gadget dayum shots. They can be artsy, weird, funny, nostalgic, color-drenched, black and white, taken inside, taken outside, taken upside down... We know how creative you are, and we want to see evidence of that yet again.

Please e-mail your favorite gear shots to crave at cnet dot com with "Instagram tech gear" in the subject line. Be sure to include your full name and location, and as well as any information you'd like to share on filters used, composition, and the subject of your photo shoot.

Please have your photos in by this Thursday, October 10, at noon PT, and we'll run our favorite photos in a gallery shortly thereafter.

To get you inspired, here are two shots of a 1986 Macintosh Plus snapped by Crave writer Amanda Kooser. She liked taking these photos so much she's considering an ongoing series of her Mac Plus in unlikely places.
