lets have challenges

okay so most of us here want to show off our cars with cool pics i suggest like other forums have we have photo challenges such as "car in the distance"
or "car in motion" or " extreme angle view " something to that effect and then we all submit and then we set a poll and vote....

anyone for this idea?

just a suggestion because i think it would be something fun to get everyone involved and it would bring together all like 9k guys and girls and 9-3ss and og9-3

This might actually work. At least it would produce nice pictures to forum.

Great idea. An idea like this was brought up on another forum.

Essentially every member was allowed one entry per month. The entries were to be submitted via email or PM to the organizer and then posted in a way that would not indicate who took the photo.

Each submitted photo was to meet the requirements of the month, and anything that was submiutted that did not meet the requirements (however general or specific they may be) was reject.

By a set date no more submissions would be allowed and then a post set up with all the entries and a poll. Polls close after a ser period of time. The person who wins gets to pick the theme for the next month.

Now, keep in mind this idea on the other forum was not necesarially needed to be car based, and if it was cars, they didn't need to be your own, having a bunch of photos of people's own cars every month would get boring (plus that would give away who took the photo pretty easily).

I'd love to see something like this happen!

I have the perfect location for something like this but don't have the equipment necessary to get the photo idea I have in mind. I would need a tripod and a decent camera with a quick frame rate. I've got a nice wooden pass section that when the leaves come down and cover the road it looks awesome in the rear mirrors at speed. Just like a huge amount of dust but with out getting the car dirty.

Who says it's going to be car pictures every month?

It could be "car related" or something.


I have a few ideas.

The type of thing I would do in the past for photography and such was making a general theme, like "repetition"

You'd get varied results, many of which would reflect the person's interests (be is cars, trains, trees, architecture, etc).

I'll try to write something up for this in the next day or two. My idea is to have a monthly, or bi monthly thing. I think having the first month as somewhat of an experiement would be a good idea, then see how many people are interested in entering. If a lot of people submit photos, then we might have to limit it to a "First 10" to meet the chriteria are eligable.

The only thing you win would be contributing some neat non-typical (for a car site) photos, and then the privledge of picking the topic for the next month. Maybe if there is sufficient interest I can make a little trophy out of metal scraps or someting :P

Any other suggestions?

I think posting the winners picture in the first post of the thread would be neat.

Or, I could make a thread dedicated to it...


Either way.
