Ahhh! Day 2 of the Stuck in Customs A World in HDR book giveaway contest, made possible by PeachPit of course! Of course, today is my favorite because the theme of the day is vehicles! And I do love vehicles!
So, this first one we’ve got here is a photo I took this weekend in Tucumcari, New Mexico of an old abandoned truck. Hope you like it. It’s just here to set the mood. Now let’s take a look at some of my favorite submissions so far and then I’ll announce today’s winner at the very end.
Gary Boyd posted what I can only describe as a Jeep in it’s natural state! Any photo of a Jeep that isn’t taken like this just means that the owner is a wannabe! Good job Gary!
Travis Putman, another new Flickr user (yeah and welcome!), shared this awesome black and white of a 57 Chevy. I really love the way the black and white accentuates the chrome. The color version is also nice.
Johnny O shared this very nicely done photo of a custom Dodge Charger SRT. Its a good-looking car made even better by the conversion to black and white and the slight angle of the image which invokes a feeling of motion even standing still. Nicely done Johnny! (Cool Sig too!)
Eugene shared his photo entitled Bentley in Avignon. The Continental GT is obviously beautiful, but all of the details are fantastic too from the cobblestone street to the magnificent home in the background.
I absolutely love this photo that Jonas posted. Its got everything a guy could want. Chainsaws, sparks, trucks. We just need a hot chick! And this photo might have won if the car were really the center of the image. But I just couldn’t give it up based on that one technicality! ;-)
Matthias Weigel shared this very cool photo of a Fiat Cinquecento. In fact, when I first saw this photo I thought… “Wow! What a cool little car!” Then I realized it’s just a tiny little Fiat 500. And frankly, anyone who can make one of these little things impress someone who personally owns an NSX deserves to win today’s contest!
So, that’s it for today. Remember that tomorrow’s theme is Architecture! I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with, but I’m also looking forward to a break after that! You guys are wearing The Judge out with all the awesome submissions! :-) Keep up the good work.
