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

”A simple theme, my R8 shot used a long focal length, maximize the focal length this week with your shot. Place your centre of interest near or far, for a close up, a normal size or a small image, it's your choice just max out the zoom. Using the F-stop can create drama with foreground and backgrounds too. Create some camera magic!" :sly:

CARS: Any
LOCATIONS: Anywhere
PHOTOTRAVEL: Absolutely
UNIQUE RESTRICTIONS: Zoom

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!
  • No post-GT6 editing, besides proportional resizing and rotating, is allowed.
  • 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 30. Every fourth
    week, the poll will be H2H style: entries must choose a "team", leading to two 15-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!

To clarify: Focal Length in game ranges from f 14 to f 500

Take your shot this week from a good distance to the car and use an upper "f value". ;)

All other settings are up to you, (Aperture or F-stop in game ranges from F 1 to F 45 and will change the depth of field focus from soft to sharp)

So, basically you're looking for a bit of bokeh??

No, not specifically, but this kind of shot depending on the camera settings can produce awesome bokeh! ;)

Only restriction for this comp is to set the zoom at an high value (f 400 to f 500) "capture some depth" 👍
