    This week's theme in detail, brought to you by winner Giulietta73:

    "We have been given some wonderful new places and spaces to explore: new Phototravel locations, new tracks and some refreshed tracks. So take your favourite ride and pose it in front of some intriguing architecture - or take your favourite architecture and photograph it next to/behind an intriguing piece of automotive architecture. Just one thing - no moon!"
    CARS: Any
    LOCATIONS: Any, but must have a building
    PHOTOTRAVEL: Yes
    UNIQUE RESTRICTIONS: Car + building, static shots only. No moon.

    Please, ensure you read and understand all requirements for this competition. Failure to follow
    the rules may result in disqualification. If you have questions, start a Conversation with me.
    This Thread will answer many possible questions you may have.


      • Please use a clickable-preview to full-size, not a separate text link for it; it makes poll creation much easier!
      • One entry per user. It must be your own work, and never previously used in a comp.
      • Do not ask other users to choose your entry.
      • Absolutely no hybrid, hacked cars, or cars obtained through such means.
      • Mark your FINAL ENTRY clearly, with red text. On H2H weeks, which side, as well.
      • You may change your entry once. Do it clearly; edit out your previous entry, and
        either post the new one in a new reply, or in place of the original.
      • When submitting, use either a thumbnail or a preview image, linked to the full-sizer.
      • Preview images can not exceed 500 pixels in either direction.
      • A preview image must be representative of the full-size image. Do not add effects to it.
      • Do not post "Honourable Mentions" or outtakes - just your Final Entry, that's all.
      • Winner gets to choose the following week's theme, as well as the Top 20. Every fourth
        week, the poll will be H2H style: entries must choose a "team", leading to two 10-picture,
        4-day polls. The winners from each faces off in a final 48 hour poll.
      • Winners cannot enter in their own theme!
      • The Host may ask for the original image and it must be submitted if so.
        It's recommended to save the original image (preferably in-game) until week's ends.

    Failure to follow these rules will result in ignored entries and/or disqualification!

      • Add shapes or objects from outside of GT6, signatures excepted.
      • Add lens flares or "artistic" filters to image.
      • Remove items from shot (scenery, other cars).
      • Use more than 1 image (HDR, photo-stitching, multi-exposure).
      • "Creative cropping". The main "image" must be four-sided, with 90-degree, upright corners.
      • Selective car colour changing: masking different parts to create racing stripes or similar.

    What you may do to a photo:

      • Crop and/or resize an image.
      • Adjust the level or curve values.

      • Car body colour change (all stickers/design features must remain, see "Remove Items" rule).
      • Adjust brightness, contrast, exposure, shadow/highlights.
      • Enhance shadows or highlights (dodge and burn tools in Photoshop, for example).
      • Add noise and/or diffuse glow.
      • Add a post-game tilt-shift blur, or apply a motion blur to a stationary Photomode shot.
      • Make use of Layer Blend Modes.
      • Use a Sharpening filter and/or tool.
      • Scale or enlarge rims.
      • Remove or modify license plates - it must be hand-drawn, no importing real ones.

      • Add a vignette effect.

    @Ronin387 sorry but your editing, although fantastic, is too much under 2.0 rules for both this and the CCCL comp entries. :(
    You cannot add in a different sky or lense flares and light particles, smoke etc, - well actually you can't really add in any objects that weren't in the original photo to begin with.

    Competition news: due to some rather unfortunate issues, I had to leave town again for the weekend. I should be back in town tonight, and we'll have very short polls to stay on schedule, but again, apologies to all.

    Grinded up some serious monies to buy this beauty. ;) Need more.​


    @Ronin387 - There's still time, you could squeeze another one in. Just got to be more careful when reading the theme in future. ;)
