PIC contest.

Ok, I want to give everyone fair time for this one...

I propose, every month that we start a pic contest of your MV. You can have a model involved should you feel the need (if you stick an ugly wench/loafer on your bike, it might work against you, so take heed..lol).

I used to do this back when I was a squid and had a Yamaha R1, now I feel it is time to do this with the MV crowd. Its very fun, people get very creative, and we will have fair judging from everyone that participates.

Things to consider:

1.) Location. Your background can easily put you over the top. I have seen some bikes in AWESOME places.

2.) Lighting. Its obvious when someone photoshops the lighting, or makes contrasts way to high. For this monthly contest, its open you can do what ever you like, but if you make bad decisions on your photoshoping skills, you might be called out on it from everyone else.

3.) Bike in good order. You wouldnt believe pics I have seen, that are dirty or have road rash on them...for a shoot! really?

4.) Overall presentation, bike placement in photo and model placement if you choose to go that route. All judges (participants) will look closely to all the surrounding enviromental issues involved (cars in backgound, cheesy onlookers, "birght spots" etc).

The first photos should be submitted by DECEMBER 1st, and ending DECEMBER 15th.

Yes, there are monthly prizes, that I will facilitate, some cool, some....kinda cool.

It's more about having fun with it and the bragging rights. Pics can be submitted at ANY time, but judging will start on the 13th by all ( so I can post a voting poll list), and should be completed for computation by 14th, posted finals on the 15th.

There has to be at least 4 members involved to have a vote off from everyone, or it will get pushed to the next month.

MODERATOR please PM me and I will shoot you all my info.

May you live as long as you want, but not want as long as you live

i like it, is this something the mod has to create for the voting/pic viewing? or is it more like a monthly poll thread with pics that everyone can send to the threads author to link in the first post/threads creation...

In the (shhh) upcoming version of MVAgusta.net, I'll have a nice spot for great photos that get uploaded to the album.
