Wow...there are sooo many good ones to choose from! Here's my choices:

#1 - 5pts. - MartijnGizmo, Ferrari F40
I like this one the most beacause it gives me the sense of isolation. Granted, there are two people in the car, the single F40 brings back ideas of "single-ness" and function after form. It's a bit hard to explain, but it gives me that feeling that the F40 is still one in its own, even in todays world of extreme machines.

#2 - 3pts. - The Transporter, Lamborghini Gallardo Spider
I chose this as my second picture because without the top, you really see the lines that go down the side of the car and the great lines the car actually carries.

#3 - 2pts. - ae86_16v, Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren
I like this one because it's a good angle. The scene it depicts for me, is hi-class and Beverley Hills, which is somewhat oxymoronic with a car with such incredible performance figures. I also like the reflections in the paint, showing how "deep" it is.

#4 - 1pts. - pterps, Honda Racing F1 Team RA106
I like the angle on this one a lot. From the top, you can really appreciate the lines that these guys take, cutting everything as closely as possible, trying to get that slightest advantage over the competitor.

Well done everyone who submitted this month!

2 pts - dingo "Aston Martin Vantage"
*Great panning shot. Awesome car. Great work.

wow, didn't realize I was in this moths commpetion untill now

but anyway here is my vote:

5pt eurocopter
, 1967 Ford Mustang (The shot is excelent, the angle, color, setting all work toghether)

, Ferrari 355 (the backround goes nicely with the car, but one let down is the visual angle of the car)

2pt TT, Ford Focus ST (not a fan of the car in any way, but the backround has a nice contrast with the car)

1pt ae86_16v
, Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren (yet again not a fan of the car, but the location fits the car perfectly, and the angle show the car well)

BTW TT, if we're voting for 4 people, shouldn't we have 4 winer results on the main page?

5 points - Pterps for Jenson Button @ Monaco. Perfect shot - interesting overhead angle. Was this at the chicane after the tunnel.

3 points - Yacouba - Lancia Stratos. The shot is awesome - one can imagine the Stratos about to launch itself down the strip. Rarity of car is a huge plus too

2 points - Maou - Noble M12. I love the grey car and grey pillars in the background. Great composition.

1 point - c0wb0y007 - BMW M3 - Fantastic shot - one of the best panning shots that I have seen.
