    This week's theme in detail, brought to you by me, actually:

    "Due to some radio silence, I've stepped in with an open theme this week, and a new approach to get us back on schedule. This is going to be a sprint race, folks; there are only 10 spots available for the poll, and you have 36 hours to enter. Once either limit is hit, the poll goes up. So start those shutters!"


    CARS: Any
    LOCATIONS: Any
    PHOTOTRAVEL: Yes
    UNIQUE RESTRICTIONS: First come, first serve - only 10 spots exist!

    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 convo with me.
    This Thread will answer many possible questions you may have.

    • 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.
    • 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.
      Unsure how to? Copy and paste the following:
      [COLOR="Red"]FINAL ENTRY[/COLOR]
    • 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!

    What you may not do to a photo:
    • Alter the geometry of the car. No stickers, or body modifications not available in game.
    • Add shapes or objects from outside of GT5, signatures excepted.
    • Tying into the above: signatures only, no image titles or other typographic elements.
    • 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.
    • Alter the colour tone of the image (gradient maps, photo filters, colour balance, etc).
    • 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.
    • Remove or modify license plates - it must be hand-drawn, no importing real ones.
    • Remove the GT watermark.
    • Add a personal signature.
    • Clean up or fix jaggies, texture pixelation, or colour separation.
    • Add a vignette effect.
