      Greetings!

      As has been requested in our previous photo contest thread; we are kicking off a monthly photo contest for the MKV .:R32 Forum. Each Month I'll add a new contest theme and anyone in this forum can post a single photo to add to the competition. At the end of each month I'll create a vote thread with all the entries and we'll see who the winner is .



      There are just a couple simple rules for this thread and this contest, as follows:
      1. You may only post ONE entry per monthly contest. You may, however, change your entry as many times as you like up to the last day of the month. Please do not post a new reply with your new entry as it will just clutter up the thread and make my job harder. If you wish to change your entry photo, simply edit your original photo reply and change out the pic to your new entry.
      2. If you win a monthly photo contest, you may not enter for the next 2 months. Please feel free to add photos that meet the monthly theme (to promote friendly competition) but any photos from the previous 2 months' winners will not be added to the voting.
      3. Any entry to a monthly photo contest MUST be a new photo taken during the current month and never used before on the forum. I will obviously be holding everyone to the honor system on this one, but if I get a link or post stating they've seen your photo posted before then we'll be looking at the picture date, etc to see if there is an issue.
      4. Pertaining to this thread: Please feel free to post or comment on photos as they are added, but no negative comments. If you have ideas for a monthly photo contest feel free to share them and I'll be happy to put them to use as well


      I hope everyone enjoys the contest, the comeraderie and the chance to improve our photo skills.

      Let the Games Begin

      May's Photo of the Month Contest Theme will be:

      SIGNS OF SPRING - You know... May flowers and all that

      To compete in this contest, please post 1 photo of an .:R32 in a spring themed setting. Try to capture the brightness and renewal that makes spring such a vital season. Use your imagination; it doesn't have to BE spring signs; just something that portrays the "feel" or vibrant colors of spring

      Photoshop touch-ups and color correction are fine; but no "in-depth" editing should be used. I think HDRs are fine as well (and I was planning to do an HDR only monthly coming up so you may want to hold out for that ) as the original photography involved is the key to making them look their best.

      My goal here wasn't to strap people with too many rules or restrictions, I'd rather see the creativity flowing; but we also don't want to go so far that people without photoshop (like me ) can't even compete.

      Good Luck!

      June is traditionally the start of the summer months, the release from schooling, and often the busy month for vacation times. As such, our June Photo Contest will be:


      MAKING A SPLASH- Get those cameras ready...



      To compete in this contest, please post 1 photo of an .:R32 in a Water-themed setting, specifically splashing water if possible. The bigger the splash the better, I don't want to give away ideas but use your imagination and find the biggest splash you can

      Photoshop touch-ups and color correction are fine; but no "in-depth" editing should be used. I think HDRs are fine as well (and I was planning to do an HDR only monthly coming up so you may want to hold out for that ) as the original photography involved is the key to making them look their best.

      My goal here wasn't to strap people with too many rules or restrictions, I'd rather see the creativity flowing; but we also don't want to go so far that people without photoshop (like me ) can't even compete. (now I just have to find an .:R32 to photograph for my entry )

      Good Luck!

      July is many things to many people; vacation time, work days, freedom from school, time to hit the beach, the pool, the parties, or even the celebration of independence. While I know this board is visited by many great members from many great countries, my patriotic heart could not pass up this month's primary them for the US residents... As such, I present to you our July Monthly Photo Contest Theme:


      SHOW ME YOUR PATRIOTIC SIDE!!!-



      To compete in this contest, please post 1 photo of an .:R32 in a setting that depicts your patriotism toward your chosen country. Allow me to stress that this is not a "Red, White, and Blue" contest only; our US holiday this month is what inspires me, but I want to see as many countries represented in this contest as we can get . Use your imagination and show me what you love about your homeland

      Photoshop touch-ups and color correction are fine; but no "in-depth" editing should be used. I think HDRs are fine as well (and I was planning to do an HDR only monthly coming up so you may want to hold out for that ) as the original photography involved is the key to making them look their best.

      My goal here wasn't to strap people with too many rules or restrictions, I'd rather see the creativity flowing; but we also don't want to go so far that people without photoshop (like me ) can't even compete. (now I just have to find an .:R32 to photograph for my entry )

      Good Luck!

      September is generally recognized as the month that kicks off the fall (for some of you in the wrong hemisphere it would of course be spring instead ). Regardless of your location, both of these seasons are marked by their amazing depth of color and brilliant displays whether it be fall leaves or spring flowers. So, to commemorate both of these amazing seasons, I present to you our September contest theme:


      A .:RIOT OF COLOR!-



      To compete in this contest, please post 1 photo of an .:R32 surrounded by a .:Riot of color. I am not going to apply any more rules than that, as I hope to see some interesting color concepts at work. Use your imagination and lets see some amazingly colorful shots!

      Photoshop touch-ups and color correction are fine; but no "in-depth" editing should be used. I think HDRs are fine as well, as the original photography involved is the key to making them look their best.

      My goal here wasn't to strap people with too many rules or restrictions, I'd rather see the creativity flowing; but we also don't want to go so far that people without photoshop (like me ) can't even compete. (now I just have to find an .:R32 to photograph for my entry )

      Good Luck!

      Man, I could have had the perfect shot for this contest last weekend but I didn't take my car. Maybe I can go back.

      I just broke out the camera, so how about extreme editing for the phototaking impaired. Will post a pic soon.

      Welcome bud, thanks for joining the contest for your first post! you will need to decide which shot you like best and remove the other, however; each person gets 1 entry

      Just 1. you have time to redo your shot with your Nikon if you like...

      2 days left folks! If you plan to enter remember to have it posted by midnight tomorrow!
