    You taking me for a ride?
    Photos taken from a moving vehicle.

    Contest Rules:

    1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

    2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. You are also allowed to adjust the brightness and contrast of your picture but these should not dramatically alter the look of the picture. But other than those, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

    3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack or photobucket. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

    4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

    5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

    6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

    7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

    8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

    9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread.

    This gas station saved my butt once, (I was on fumes when I got there) so I decided to immortalize it the next time I passed it. On top of the fact that the sign is pretty silly....:rofl:


    Somewhere in Oregon on I84.

    Yeah binzing, it is just north of Lime, I think Durkee? Or at least that general area. We tried getting gas at Farewell Bend Flying J, but they were out. I had to drive that mountain range on 1/8 of a tank.:eek: By the time we got through the pass the needle was touching E.

    This was a tough one, I had a bunch of unconventional vehicle pics, but I ended up choosing fun over picture quality. I took this pic of two guys I work with right before my second jump.

    Really like this one. Looks like fun.

    There's a thread buried somewhere in genereal discussion called 'Disqualified' for pics you can't for whatever reason enter in the photo contests. You should post the others to there :smile:
