    This Thread will answer many possible questions you may have.

    ssc_rules.png
    • 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!
    • Entries for the competition this week must be sent to the Host Nato_777 via a
      Conversation and not posted in this thread, any pics posted in this thread will not be considered for the poll.
    • Your PM may consist of the image in either thumbnail/preview with a link to the full size, just the full size image or just a link to the full size.
    • Your first entry will be your last, you will not be allowed to change your entry so be happy with it.
    • One entry per user. It must be your own work, and never previously used in a competition.
    • Do not use a photo from your Gallery or post your photo shoot in your Gallery until after the competition (and poll if you made it) has closed.
    • Absolutely no hybrid, hacked cars, or cars obtained through such means.
    • 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.
    • Winner gets to choose the following week's theme, as well as the Top 15.
    • 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 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.
    • 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.

    This will be open for around another 24 hours - only 6 entries so far, so there's plenty of opportunity to make the poll with a submission. ;)
