    Theme chosen by LongbowX


    THEME: In their words: "Your worst model.

    Perhaps a beloved (but trashed) childhood toy. Or a model that you consider the least detailed, or defective in some way. Whatever you consider the worst. "

    • 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 softwares. Other adjustments and effects (such as paintbrush tools) are not allowed to be used in your picture . You may also use Unsharp Mask.

    • 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 2015 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.

    Oblivion.

    Not an absolute wreck, but then most of the really trashed cars were disposed of long ago, and this is the only one of the the remaining few that I have an inspiration.​

    Well of the very few models I do have this is my worst. I couldn't bare the look of the outside after reviewing some of the shots I took, so I went with an interior one instead. :p

    Unfortunately no entry from me this week, as the cars I had planned to do the shoot with...well, I can't find 'em. I don't think I got rid of them, but it is possible...

    I was going to use a blue 1/18 Bugatti EB110 that I believe was my first model. And it is absolutely trashed. Doors come off, wheels don't stay attached, etc. I would have disassembled it and have share the picture with another terrible car most likely. I planned on making it a dim, sort of "abandoned warehouse" vibe.

    If I ever do find them, I may do just that.
