DPNow Salon Competition No 68 "The Car"

DPNow Salon Competition No 68 - The car.

A big thanks to Trevor for running with the last Salon and a big personal thanks for selecting my entry.

Part of my day at times is to look at training people and I've spent some of my day planning driver training in many types of vehicle's. I'm not a petrol head but I do like Top Gear (motoring show) and I think most folk like to see a "flash" car or do they?

I know cars and the using of them can be quite emotive - I think most of us will have had a little rage at times whilst driving and I'm sure DPN will have some great picture stories to tell.

The closing date for entries will be Saturday 1st August and the winners will be announced on Sunday 2nd August.

Oh and as always, here are the Rules:-

1) All photographs are to be uploaded to the photo gallery at http://dpnow.com/galleries/, they can be put in members own gallery if they wish. The resulting link generated for the photo will then be pasted into the next available space in the Salon thread. Please keep photos to a maximum of 800 pixels wide so people can see the whole image without scrolling.

2) One entry per user ID only please, which must be the personal work of the entrant.

3) Entries should be "in line" within the thread (not as links to an image held somewhere else.)

4) Comments only on entries are welcome within the salon thread itself.

5) After the close the curator will indicate a winner and a couple of runners up.

6) The curators decision is final.

7) Winners should be offered first refusal to choose the next theme and curate the next salon.

If the winner is unable to curate the next salon the current curator may offer that "honour" to any willing volunteer, possibly the entrant in second or third place.

9) These rules are to be copied and pasted with the new theme by the curator at the top of the new salon thread with a finish date and time.

10) As with all photos posted on DPNow,copyright remains the photographer and DPNow will not use them without permission.

The Prize is the choice of either CF 8GB Ultimate or a SDHC 8GB Class 6 memory card.

Good luck

Dave R

The man on the A14



Relationships with cars is not always a happy thing. Although the car I was in was great (a bright yellow roadster), the traffic jam was not!

Re: DPNow Salon Competition No 68 "The Car"

The top photo is my competition entry, but I thought I'd include the bottom one in case anyone's interested in seeing the back - I hope that's all right! Moderators - please feel free to remove the bottom photo if not!

This car must have been here for at least 15 years, as it is totally surrounded by trees - there's no pathway wide enough for it to have been driven through any more.

Here's my entry. Took a while to decide but chose this one because the body work looks so smooth in B&W.

Best Regards

Josh
