    Theme chosen by AOS-


    THEME: In their words: "Cold stare.

    Capture something that gives you the shivers when you look at them."


    [​IMG]

    • Editing: Levels, Curves, Colour Balance, Brightness/Contrast, Hue/Saturation, Shadows/Highlight adjustments, Cropping, or anything else capable in the development process or with filters and common special lenses (such as gradients) are allowed to be used in Photoshop or other image editing software.
    • You may also edit/clone tool slight defects like dust spots.
    • You may use Unsharp Mask.
    • Other adjustments and effects are not allowed to be used in your picture.
    • Photographs should ideally include some composition and effect - Base the photo on a studio shoot, or even use diorama/composition to create a realistic setting (you could position the model and camera in such a way in an outside setting so that it appears to be a 'real' car)
    • No HDR shots.
    • Shots must be taken between January 2016 and the present day.
    • Work that has been shown previously (outside of the competition) is allowed.
    • One entry per competition. You may change your entry as many times as you wish, however the entry you wish to submit should clearly be labelled with "Final Entry".
    • Pictures posted should preferably be around 900px on their longest edge. You may link to a larger photograph in the post (I believe this is the size limit allowed by the Photography forum, however it likely hasn't been updated in some time)
    • All scales of model are allowed unless specified.

    @AOS- nice subject!

    Like I said in the the passed comp thread I'm busy with a big project with my scale models but then again this kind of subject gives me enough leeway to be able to enter. Happy shooting

    Just found this interesting thread. I would like to enter but would not like to be the only one.
    One silly question: Will there be any action until deadline on Monday?

    Entries usually roll out near the end of the deadline, or even after the deadline. If there aren't enough the deadline is extended so go ahead!

    100% can confirm. It’s almost become a norm that most of us have adopted without any form of exchange or communication beforehand.* :lol:

    On a serious note, though, it’s highly unlikely, if even possible, that there’re fewer than 2 entries in the competition when it closes, so yeah, you’re more than welcome to join. As it goes, the more the merrier, right? :)

    *Not that I’m complaining, because I’m probably the most guilty of it if I do.

    I think the flare and vignette disqualify this but was just playing with my phone.

    Final Entry - "old chevy's"

    This competition closed a long time ago - over 8 months, in fact - as is the poll for this competition. The results of the poll can be seen here. Meanwhile, Week 113 of this competition is still accepting entries, so maybe you can join the Week 113 competition if you fancy another go? :)
