    Automotive Photography Competition (Oct 17th, 2011)

    I know it is a little short notice but this competition will serve as a live test and it will also ensure we have a full set of shots for the monthly run-off. Entries are due at 8 am GMT on Monday morning. Once the entry is closed a new thread will be opened.

    • Your image may be up to 800 pixels wide or tall.
    • Photograph may contain post-processing editing
    • It is preferred that you state enhancements made, but not necessary.
    • The photograph must be taken no earlier than one year before start date

    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.

    Dammit, why was the comp on suspension
    Is the "4 months" rock solid ? All my Euro pics are right on the edge, dont think I can put in the Ferrari pics
    Can you put in more than one pic per comp ??

    I am not in charge but 4 months (particularly during the winter period) may be a bit harsh. Just try and see what happens
    And no, only one shot per round.

    Interesting to note BTW from that Peugeot pic(and from looking at pics after at home), Peugeot is running their "Le Mans" nose, with bigger brake duct though...
