    So for my first FH3 photoset, I thought I'd start with all the barn find cars. At first I was just taking the same photos I've always been taking, then I decided to try some new ideas, especially long distance photography to really highlight the scenery. Let's see how it turned out, shall we? Edit: and since this is about the barn finds, I'll spoiler tag it for now.

    Just collecting up a bunch of photos from around the forum.

    For the 1972 Reliant Supervan III I went with the vintage filter, desaturating the photo to make it look like it was from the 1970s of a prospector in his Reliant working in the outback. For the Ford, I went with black and white to make it look like a contemporaneous photo of a new 1940 Ford in Australia.

    Last night I decided to change my avatar in the game. None of them look like me, and if we're going to be forced to photograph the driver when shooting open-top cars, then I should at least have someone worth looking at driving my cars. In that vein, I am proud to announce the newest driver for Team Populuxe, recording star, singer, songwriter, musician, producer, actor and now championship winning race driver, Janelle Monáe.

    Getting the S14 and the 100,000 skill chain wasn't hard at all, but acing three drift zones took me a couple hours.

    I forgot to take a pic of it in the auction house, but I just won this Mini HE for the minimum 400k credits. So have a pic of it racing a train instead.

    I always liked the original wheels on the 1968 Lancia Fulvia Coupé Rallye 1.6 HF so I took advantage of the wheel size glitch to make them 16 inches instead of the original 13 inches.

    I managed to get my Maloo stuck in the back of a lorry at the construction site. I was trying to jump it using the dirt pile in the background, but got my timing off. Hooray for the Y button!

    I took my rally-prepped XR2 out to Ormiston Gorge for some photography.

    I love that place. There are so many different different ways to show off your car out there. Also, there are dingoes.[​IMG]

    The flowers are inspired by Japanese artist Takashi Murakami who works in a style he calls "superflat."

    What a good and honest gallery this is. No crazy editing, just appreciation for cars, (digital) nature, and even art (Isetta set). While your gallery isn't the flashiest, or most advanced. I enjoy your approach, and often that's what means the most. :tup: This shot is a great display of what this game has to offer.

    I agree with @Skython . Though, one thing you could do to improve your gallery is put your best image per post outside the spoiler tag to entice people to view the rest of your shots.

    I love the Chrysler Valiant Charger E49. It's my favorite car in this game, just like the Lancia Fulvia was my favorite car in FH2. They were both cars that were long overdue in a top line racing game. So I had this idea to photograph the E49 in every beauty spot in the game. Between the main map and Blizzard Mountain, there are 18 beauty spots. The E49 comes in ten colors, so if I photograph each color twice, that's 20 photographs.

    Wait, whut?

    20 photographs. 18 beauty spots. My OCD can't handle that. Easy solution was to take a couple photographs in the Hot Wheels expansion which didn't come with any beauty spots. Existential crisis averted.

    The first one is free. The rest you'll have to pay for by clicking on the spoiler button.

    This is my new project: photograph every car in the game chronologically, from oldest to newest. That should keep me entertained for the next year while waiting for FH4. Let's start with 1932.
