Now I know not everyone has the DLC and if you don't have it you can't even used a shared car. But if you ask someone with the DLC nicely they might run an online lobby race with you using the Aventador and you could use that replay.
Alternatively I am planning to save a few replays and upload them somewhere for others to download and use for a photo shoot. I'll post details later once I've sorted it.

I'm sorry, but I think I might have the sexiest Aventador on GT5. It is a tribute to a signature Diablo color. :)

Same for me also.
I already have 7 Aventadors because I love it so much. I plan to use my "show car" Aventador in this photo comp, but I will probably end up with at least 10 photos that I will love.

Very nice theme, will be doing some running at the 24h layout. And now do I finally have an answer to whether you're allowed to use a DLC car in the CCCL.

A LONG time probably.


About 1 minute and 30 seconds worth of a lap replay, then watching it to take photos. I am about 1 minute into it, and I already have around 20 photos that I really like, and my first ever backfire photos that I've gotten that were distorted so much that you couldn't really tell it was backfire.

I love the Aventador so much. :D

I think I'll have over 100 awesome photos when I'm done. It will probably be my first actual single car photoshoot ever.

okay, the two layouts on GT5, landscape (normal) and portrait (the vertical one) are allowed, I know that. But, are wide landscapes allowed?
What I mean by wide landscapes is that I take the portrait layout and turn it on its side.

In short... yes. :)

okay, that makes it so much easier to take awesome photos now. Bad part, I am up to 50 photos now and I've only done 3 minutes of driving. :\
I also really like all the photos and none have even been touched by an editing program yet.

It might take till Friday to decide on my entry. lol

I got it narrowed down to 20, but, I am having a hard time deciding which ones to not use from those 20.

This is hard. :(

think i will skip this week:tup::drool:👍

It is a great entry, but, you should still enter this week. You never know, you might do well.

Plus, I think that there will be more incredible things to come. :)

I'm down to 10 different photos, deciding between these is gonna be nearly impossible. I think I might consult my photography professor in class tomorrow about it. :) Is that against the rules?

FINAL ENTRY

Aventador at the Nurburgring by Musical_Artist, on Flickr

I finally narrowed it down to this photo, but, I still have some other photos that just as easily could've been just as good in the competition, so I might change my entry later if I feel like it.

It was really hard to choose just one, took 3 or 4 hours of deliberation and it went from over 40 photos, to 25, then 20, then 12, then 10, then 6. After I got to 6, I just chose one I thought would possibly work the best.​
