Ok so, again ppl asking to change the voting method.


I am SURE that, if now we have between 200 and 300 ppl voting every month, with the new method we would have way less than 50, but we could still give it a shot maybe.

Basically, like we do on another forum, everybody HAS to give 6 points to the best picture, 5 to the second and down to 1 for the 6th one in this book.
At the end of the month we'll do the maths and who got more points will win.

There will be a MAIN rule: EVERY member with a picture entered in the contest MUST vote (not for his pic obviously), or else, at the end of the month he will get ZERO points. (all the entrants will be notified via PM since most pics are picked by us)

I guess we'll post also a topic in the announcements to see who is interested in using this new and possibly easier method

I don't really have the time to comment the entries but Salegosse gets my vote, I like the way everything is parallel and the light is just perfect. But dani, smylait, cowboy and dingo also deserved some points


Stmoritzer, that's the Anneau du Rhin isn't it ? Please tell me bystanders weren't allowed ! :cry:

Thanks for the votes, it's indeed one of my best photoshootings ever and I'm quite proud of the pic, report will follow asap ops:

to answer salegossse's and Darkel's question, it was at the racetrack ofAnneau du Rhin. Gumpert rented the track (although there were few private cars on the track inbetween), it was a private testday with customers testing the car.

TT - kick ass pic, love the "soft" light night shots, you know, early evening stuff, the background looks very aristocrat, and ofcourse the 430, great combination.

tifosi - hot car, but I like the beasts in the wild better

Darkel - the car needs no words, crazy pic, unique and I love it for that reason, the only thing that bothers me are the stickesr, but you couldn't do anything about that

Dingo - haha, GREAT pic, I like taking pics of silver cars the most....I see you like taking pics in the evening, or was it morning....great background, but I would like it even better if the right side of the pic ( background ) would be as alive as the left...

nthfinity - wow, what a beast! love tilted pics, great angle, the contrast is very well suited for a car like the Vector , one of my favs 8)

80ssportlover - artistic, no doubt! brand new car and a b&w pic. This pic went to my favourite car pics folder right away 8) That car really looks like it want's to start eating that tarmack right now!

goldfinger147 - one of the hottest car on the planet, but the light is just not good enought! But hey, two MC12's in one place! Who cares about the light, right?

P_Zero_Rosso - VERY cool pic, the contrast is just amazing.

salegosse - the apollo, such a beast...to bad it's so ugly If the background was more alive....still, I saved the pic

sl55kleemann - two of my favourite brands in one pic, what could be better, lol, I just really don't like the stickers

Smylait - uuu, holly shit...dude this one one of my favourites, I mean, caught in traffic, no other cars, great contrast, sharp edges, blurry background, I know it's not easy making a pic like this, at least before you really get to know the camera..

twboy1999 - the blue and the red go well together ... great pic

Wutputt - interesting background 8) , I like the car being on the right side of the pic 8) a car and track well combined 8)


c0wb0y007 - stickers, stickers, tried to love them, but just can't ops:

dodo - don't know about this one, I think that tha CGT should be standing out more...did you try to play with the pic in photoshop

Maou - can't really find anything wrong with this pic 8)

pterps - awesome car, where did you take this pic?

vakpemil - is this the record breaking car? Top speed ? interesting combination, the car and the building...

sameerrao - get the people out of the 360! the 355 sure is a looker, one of my favourite pics 8)

hamelt - dang!, I just hate the fact that there are sooo many cool pics to choose from ( get the new system of evaluating as soon as posible) I always like tilted pics ops:

dani!!!! AAA!!!! this is just crazy, the colours, the enviroment we ALL know, and one of the best looking F cars ever....perfect !


stmoritzer - lol, these apollo's are turning up everywhere, lol , what a coulour!!
the car literary jumps at the viewer - very cool 8)

ok, this is getting harder by the month...

my favs: 80ssportlover (the b&w mustang), Smylait ( M3 CSL ), Maou ( AM V8 ), sameerrao ( the two F cars ) and dani's F355.

my vote goes to , well, dani and maou is the final, and I have to go for dani, but it was probably the closest fight ever....dani's pic is so clean, no fuss, just the car the road and Monaco....perfect, on the other hand, Maou, well, again, a great combination of the classy yet brutal AM and a fitting background....

get the new system it will be way easier to give out points.

dani's pic get's my vote

No prob mate, it is a personal thing. I respect every one's opinion. One of my favourites is the Mustang GT in B&W, a very nice picture that is !

Congrats to every one anyway. To my mind, there are lots of pictures which deserve to be printed in any high-quality car mag.

Keep it up


Cheers

The Mustang is a V6 not a GT

You know what is funny .... When I opened this topic and was browsing thru the user names while waiting for the pics to load.

So I saw the usual suspects .. Yeah TT is always there, Dingo, Nth, dani ... and then sameerrao, .... I was absently going on to the next name on the list when I realized WTF I posted something here ... don't recall doing that in a real long time.

By then the pics loaded up and I scrolled down quickly to see what the heck I had posted and saw the 355 and 360 pic.

I then realized it must have been TT or someone else who posted on my behalf - thanks Dude whoever you are ...

Back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Basically since we started using pics taken by JW members ONLY, we pick the best ones out of the WYST section every month, even if the hunter doesn't submit his fav from the past month (which he can do via PM before the end of the month)
