This month's picture is pretty neat. I love the stream in the background, as well as the vantage point. The Front Driver's wheel is angled quite well to show off the nice brakes and caliper. I'm not sure I like the tow hook sticking out, but it makes me wonder if the car was towed to the posing point, or if it drove. The grass looks freshly cut and has neat lines. the reflections off the car show it has been recently cleaned and waxed/polished. The angle and glare make it hard to tell if the glass is tinted or not, which is interesting.

Nice job, Matt.

The directive was to begin collecting photos ASAP. I don't know when Karl will start the Kickstarter, etc.

I have a photoshoot scheduled for this Sunday. Props are just about completed. Teaser: meeting up with my photographer at an auto-cross event.

I need a photographer and another driver for mine this year. James, you going to be in Charleston this year?

It is a nice picture Matt. Your car looks terrific on the grass. And you have one hell of a yard.

We could just start a new thread for photo trails if we wanted. I have some ideas other than above too.

It's photo taking season right now, so y'all should be getting creative with your cameras. The voting period and money collection phase will happen later in the summer.

Only rules are that the photo has to be of your car, and that the photo has to be taken on or after Jan. 1st, 2013. Other than that, you guys can submit whatever you want!

I won't be around unless you can rally the troops and cover my travel costs and a place to stay. Photoshoots at that point will be free.

I think we just do things on the honor system, I can't imagine Karl checking meta data on all the submissions.

it's like EXIF data... but you can block it and make it go away if you're working with the original file, and thus make a jpeg file with no real file info other than size, date modified ect.
