Exclamation Photo Contest Plea!!!! C'mon guys!!!

Cmon guys! Lets see some good artistic pics like we used to have for these contests! !!! Its not about a quick pic with your phone camera, put some thought and some efforr into them!!
Go back and look at quality of pics in earlier contests,seems we are getting lazy

I just remember these contests being about form and technique moreso than trying to get a fast phone pic of the topic at hand. This is not the contest where you try and get a pic with the next topic as fast as you can so you get to pick the next topic. Its all about QUALITY of pictures and the skill that went into them all while admiring our trucks and showing them off. Plus it makes for some pretty cool desktops and backgrounds for our computers and phones


Here is an example of some winning pics that I am used to. As you can see, some thought and effort went into them! Im tired of looking at mediocre pictures anymore! I realize topics are getting hard to comeby, but since we have many new members, its ok to use old topics again as well.

I know Its been done but It still looks cool, and I havent done it till know cause Bham is about an hour and a half away from me, and when I did go there I wasnt in A parkingdeck that tall

You dont need photoshop or expensive gear to get great shots, its all composition. All that other stuff just helps take it up a few notches. Some of the best photo's Ive seen have been taken with cell phones!

Its become to almost a "who has a nicer truck" then who had a nice picture. Like mentioned all you truly need is good lighting and a good angle, you'll have a good shot. I try to do my best, but pictures I tend to think shouldn't have won, won. You need to put out a "calling all vets" contest to get some attention back, get some of the guys who did all those shots up top to do a good freaking contest.
