Before showing the pics, I'd like to remember you we changed the way to decide the winner since this month. Just testing if it will work out, but I am sure it will, and it's a better solution, even if some of the laziest ones will stop voting because it will take some more time.

Here is what to do:

You have to select your fav FOUR pics and assign points. The point system is as follows:

fav pic: 5 pts
second pic: 3 pts
third: 2 pts
fourth: 1 pt

Please, your fav pic on top, 4th one at the bottom of the short list.

Also, if you want, please, explain your choices

And may the best win

1 : stmoritzer, Aston Martin Vanquish 5pts . Certainly because I love the colour combo and the pic is clean.
2 : salegosse, Opel Speedster and Mazda RX7 3 pts. I love the lights and ambiance, even more than stmoritzer submission but the featured cars are not really as interesting. With a Ferrari or another BIG badge it would be my favorite.
3 : dingo, Aston Martin AMV8 2 pts. Nice lights and nice car.
4 : sameerrao, Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster 1 pt . I don't really like the background but the car and the colour are beautiful.

It was once again difficult to make a choice and I was tempted by some Veyrons but ... we have to choose a winner
Good work mates !!

TT, the link says to start with 6 points for the best pic, down to 1 for the 6th pic. The instruction on this page are like last month, 5 points, 3, 2, 1 for the last pic. Which way? Here are my top 6 choices, and if you're doing the 5, 3, 2, 1, just chose the top 4 and assign the point accordingly.

6- Smylait; Bugatti Veyron
This is my favorite this month. I love the angle. It looks so futuristic and foreign from the back, like nothing else on the market right now. Excellent picture!

5 - Sameerrao, Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster
I love Lambos. I love the color. I love the winglets on the car. It's the boyracer in me...

4 - Dani d Mas, Chevrolet Corvette C6 Z06R
I like this picture for its simplicity. The machine and the track.

3 - Eurocopter, Wiesemann GT
This is an interesting picture. I don't recognize the car, but the fact that it's running under water looks pretty cool.

2- Dingo, Aston Martin AMV8
I like the rake on this car. I think it sits really nicely. The backdrop of what appears to be a dealership makes me want to go window shopping for exotics.

1- Carrera_GTCrazy, Audi RS4 B7
I like the contrast of the new car and the graffitti (sp?).

Great Job Everyone!

2nd: sameerrao, Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster ~ again that is where i would picture the car, in some back lot at a studio etc. just a great shot, with a beautiful car. good job.

3rd: bloeb, BMW E63 M6 ~ I have never seen a car look so mean before :shock: very very good shot

4th: Harryo2b. Porsche 987 Boxster ~ a match made in heaven. the comp could of been better but subject matter is perfect. very clear and clean.

5pts - Carrera_GTCrazy - It's obvious...

3pts - dani_d_mas - I think there were a few even better shots you took during that event (especially the ones from behing the wired fence) but this is also a nice choice.

2 pts - Titanboy_24 - Good still shot, gives the car a lot of class.

1pt - sameerrao - Rare colour for the Murci plus it has the top down

1 - 5 pts - Carrera_GTCrazy, Audi RS4
2 - 3 pts - Dani, C6R
3 - 2 pts - eurocopter, Wiesemann GT
4 - 1 pt - 80ssportlover, Bugatti Veyron

All of them are really nice pics though, really tough choices but I had to give the most points to the RS4 because it combines a lot of what I like in one nice picture; art, RS4 and a nice photo (looks like an ad).

I confirm we are just voting the first 4 pics: 5 - 3 - 2 - 1

And my votes are like this:

5 pt - Titanboy_24 - beautiful: a pit lane, a low and cloudy sky and the car is a spider makes for a nice postcard!
3 pt - sameerrao - the pic is supersharp, the Murci is well placed and the background is a bit weird, like a forgotten shed near a raceway, i like the final result and the fact the muci is a rare color, is even better!
2 pt - Carrera_GTCrazy - must be crazy not to vote for tis shot. IMO the RS4 is much better from a pure 3/4 rather than this angle which is somewhere between a 3/4 and a side pic, but the setting is superb anyway and well executed
1 pt - eurocopter - nice action shot, as simple as that.
