2013 E34 Calendar

So on bf.c last year they had a thread where poeple submitted pictures, went to a link, voted for their twelve favorite, and had a calendar made of the winners. And judging by your sikk pictures on the picture thread, I'd love to look at all your lovely ladies all year long (if you dont get too jealous of my prying eyes ). Looking at pictures of other people's E34s is cool, but i dont know them. I'd like to flip through months and see all the sexy beasts that i am familiar with! So heres the order of events:

I will have a mod sticky this and update as we move through the steps, which are:

Posting pictures (e-mail them to me in addition to posting here so i may edit and adjust to fit the calendar, and create the poll). ***Each person Gets One or Two Submissions!!*** im not going through somebody's multi-thousand picture album....

I will create the poll after the picture submission deadline, and link it here. You will pick 12 of your favorite; only once and only twelve.

I will create and submit the calendar to CafePress so that you may buy from there and they will print ad-hoc orders, or if it is more cost-effective, have them made and ship them to ya'll.

The person with most votes will get a calendar, gratis, courtesy of yours truly.

Let the games begin gentlemen! I'll give you time to plan out your photoshoots, take the picture, edit, and pick your favorite, or go through your archives to find the one you want... and submit.

1st deadline to submit pictures is August 4th.

Instead of dealing with all of the PMs EMAIL is: BMWboyM5 @ ay oh elle .com

I'D LOVE TO SEE A TON OF PARTICIPATION! EVERYBODY GIVE IT A SHOT

I love this idea Joe and will gladly order one of the calendars.

I am flattered that you mention my car, but it is nothing special to be worthy of a calendar. It is just a very clean bone stock E34. I look forward to the submissions and voting.

you know, it sorta sounds like you're saying a bone stock E34 isn't photoworthy, and i know that just cant be true because that isnt the Steve I know. Get a solid shot of it's best angle. Doesnt hurt to submit, let the voters decide if it's calendar worthy...

Great idea, what are the requirements and can we use existing pictures?

yeah man. No requirements. Just not thumbnail sized. i believe 1024 x 768 should be a pretty good size. Just submit a picture, i'm not going to be a stickler for it, one or two is fine, decent size, dont care if its old, current, or future lol, or how edited it is.

just no photoshops

PM me and i'll get you my email...

Very true. A tidy 100% unmolested car has just as much chance as winning as one of our other members tickled cars.

What about edited photos? I'm not talking about photoshopping 18" wheels and a drop, but color-wise, similar to my sig. I wouldn't submit anything as "striking" as my sig pic though...

i know i know its taking ages! the guy its with is finishing it off but is having a string of unrelated family issues so the car has had no progress the last few weeks. missed an NZ meet in auckland this weekend which im not too happy about, but life goes on. Im hopeful for very soon. Should really have been finished several months ago if everything had gone to plan. I would drop a teaser photo to keep you all interested but the car is in Auckland, i live in Wellington (you can google map that).

Meanwhile have been playing with the E30 and Merc to keep my mind off the E34, but its so hard. Will be updating my E30 thread tomorrow or monday. The merc y'all not interested in so i wont say whats going on there lol

Depends on whether or not you want to win votes for a spot I guess. Resolution was discussed already though.

OP..

The dealine is too soon! I need until the third week of Sept to get you an eye popping fall colors shot. looks like I better start on a pic collection for next time around.

Yeah, that's fine. I can give you into september. I'm going to cafepress it so it will be minimal getting the calendar together. The poll is going to be the cruncher.

Email then to me. The forum compresses them to fit or at least from my browser it does. That should be fine
