    Nice photo Banzai, but according to Justin, as you're the judge of the competition, you're not allowed to enter a photo

    Sorry 'bout it, Robert. :indiff: Rules are rules. I can't let a winner be a winner every week.

    Speaking of which, I'm currently moving to a new house, and therefore, I'm packing up my PS2, PS3 and their respectful games. As a result, no entry for me this week. :guilty:

    Omg, completely forgot about that! haha, forget about my photo. Let it be there as quality mark, yo! :lol:

    I just posted the photo in hurry, as I was doing in every competition. Funny as hell! :lol:

    That's good you moving to the house, Justin, but that's bad you can't post an entry this week. Every medal has its two sides, so... Hope the new house is amazing!

    Sorry for the double-post, but that was the only way this thread would get attention. I'm not proud, but this is all I got time for:

    Final Entry

    Photobucket

    So theoretically, with Robert out of it and Justin moving house, I WIN :D

    That's really good photo! I like that vertical setup, it suits that corner very good!

    Well had I gone with a landscape photo, the bottom bit of my RX-7 would have been out of the photo...

    The photo would look epic if you just had some motion blur on it from photoshop, while cars still being sharp and focused, and I would also make the rear wheel spin by radial bluring it ;)

    Well having recently bought another laptop, I don't yet have Photoshop. At the moment I'm having to use limited tools on Photobucket...:guilty:

    But it works okay for the UEC, so shouldn't it be allowed here? We get 5 or less entries a week, and cutting down on that is just going to make it worse.
