Default Photo Of The Month, August Submissions

Photo of the Month is back!
Please take the time to vote for your favorites.

This is a truncated month, and voting will end August 1st.

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
---------------------------------------------------
Some wonder how to get a photo in POTM
1.) You must be the photographer
2.) It must be at least 1024 wide
3.) It must be posted with a hi-res link in "What you saw today"
4.) It must be posted within the start of the previous POTM contest, and the next one (usually 1 month)

If you have a personal favorite photo you want in the next contest, please send me a PM

Really tough 8 days.... so lets get as many votes in as possible...

This is a really tough contest to choose my favorites.... Some really good entries!


5 pts - Skyliner42, Venturi
Great color, great contrast, and a well sorted photo. Rare car to boot!

3 pts - MC12, Pagani Zonda F
Spectacular angle which is rarely seen. So many contours on the car that you cannot see from a more traditional low shot! Well done!

2 pts - Smartdriver, Weisman GT
Lower light, panning shot... quite sharp, with a great backdrop the car is against. Could be framed a little more neat with a little "free transform" and crop in PS, and it would've been a 5 pt. photo for me!

1 pt. - Midengine4life, Nascar Toyota Camry
Great color, and freeze action after a victory. The tire smoke is a nice touch

5 Points: Nthfinity, Bentley CGT Mulliner
Unique color contrast! Wicked, unique subject . You even shot the car sort of "in-contour" with the bushes behind it!

3 Points: MC12, Pagani Zonda F
Taken from an angle i've not seen before. Never seen a Zonda from the top-down, which shows off many of its angles. Great colors too

2 Points: a007apl, Lamborghini Gallardo GT3

Unique shot, unique car, nice photo 007

1 Point: Midengine4life, Nascar Toyota Camry
This made me laugh! HA. Different to the others, nice zoom on your camera? Took a nice shot.

5 nthfinity what a great angle, composure and color. the photo is brilliant.
3 eurocoptor the contrast of the car to the background is great!
2 944r for some reason those reflections really do it for me.
1 smartdriver if the background had been not white i would have given this one a lot more points no worries though, a great sighting and shot!

and btw nthfinity it's Wiesmann not Weismann
