    Further explanation of the theme, provided by, yet again, me:

    "Just like the PMC this week, 2.0 will be an open theme so we can all get our feet wet. In addition though, I will be taking theme suggestions for next week's first H2H (Head 2 Head) theme! Simply submit a theme that has two definable sides (Red vs Blue, US vs Europe, Audi vs BMW, FF vs FR, etc), and there will be a 2 day poll put up on Friday. One suggestion per person, please!"

    CARS: Any
    LOCATIONS: Any
    AUTOVISTA/HOMESPACES: Yes
    CUSTOM LIVERIES: Yes
    UNIQUE RESTRICTIONS: Nope

    Please, ensure you read and understand all requirements for this competition. Failure to follow
    the rules may result in disqualification. If you have questions, send a PM to SlipZtrEm, Scaff, or Terronium-12.

    • It is recommended you host your image on ImageShack, Photobucket, or Flickr.
    • Not sure how to post a thumbnail or preview image? Read this sticky!
    • 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.
    • 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 25. Every fourth
      week, the poll will be H2H style: entries must choose a "team", leading to two 12-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, by uploading to your storefront.
      For this reason, it's recommended to save the original image until week's ends.
      [/B]
    Failure to follow these rules will result in ignored entries and/or disqualification!

    What you may not do to a photo:
    • Alter the geometry of the car; No body modifications not available in game.
    • Add shapes or objects from outside of FM4, 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 (though they can be rounded).

    What you may do to a photo:
    • Crop and/or resize an image.
    • Adjust the level or curve values.
    • Alter the colour tone of the image (gradient maps, photo filters, colour balance, etc).
    • 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.

    Since you are asking for idea for the first head to head poll I figured I would post one.

    Suzuki Liana Vs. Kia cee'd, both at TGTT(AKA new SIARPC car Vs. Old SIARPC car).

    You can't use the same pic in more than 1 competition, you will have to chose 1.
