It's so nice having all of my friends come over, and be like... wtf... is that your car on that calendar???

Why yes... yes it is...

Haha, one thing for everyone submitting pictures, I recommend using the clarity tool in Photoshop or Paintshop, because it makes the picture itself look more vivid, and clearer in print. It compensates for the flatness of a picture taken with a mediocre camera.

If anyone needs help with it, email me.

There's plenty of time.

P.S. I know I've disappeared for a while, but I'm back.

The picture has to be at an angle so you can tell it's a ti,no head on shots. Your sig pic wouldn't work unless you can see the whole car,we need to see the impaired trunk.

I changed my sig, it was a sunset picture, it should be in my gallery, you could see a silohoutte of the car.

i still think that an opening page should be made up of cool elongated signature pics displaying the 318ti.org logo.

just like mine and Jperfect's!!!!!!!!!!!

That's interesting, maybe we should start taking some artsy photos. The cover could be a voting all in itself.

I think it would look really cool if we had 5 elongated panoramic signature-ish shots on the cover... each of the 5 could be 360L x 2400W in size to fill the whole page, and on the bottom, I, or someone else could make an embossed title/year/318ti.org.

Another Idea I had, was to put runners up, or everyone else's cars on the cover. We can compile like 300 cars and put them all on the cover in a collage.

I'd be more than willing to provide help in any way I can, I think the calendar is a great thing for all members of the site.

OH, and BTW i was able to recover all the data from my old hard drive on my fried computer, and I have all of the individual cars from the old calendar with no backgrounds. I know I promised those months ago, but I have them now, and they are in Paintshop Pro/Photoshop format. I can also send as PDFs.

If you'd like your car, drop me a message.

Red face Personification

I kinda like my sig pic too, lol. It tells a story... well... to me, because I know the situation. *flashback*

It was a blustery blizzard, 24 inches of snow, as many of you know. The ti was parked on the street. She was BURIED. At around noon, when the worst was over, I decided to go retrieve her. So I got my broom, my shovel, a scraper, and my keys; and I got to work. 20 minutes later, the car was clean, but there was still 2 feet of snow on all sides. I then opted to say "F THIS" and i got in and started her up. I listened to her growl for about 10 minutes while I warmed her up, and then I began the long and hard process of going in and out, and in and out... to dislodge myself from the wheel-high snowbanks!

Finally, after about 20 minutes of manhandling my girl, she was finally free. With one last roar, she overcame all obstacles, and lie in the street humming. I backed her into my driveway, plowing a little more, and finally set her to rest.

I looked at her, my car personified, with beads of 'sweat' dripping down her curved fenders. I could plainly see that she was exhausted from our vigorous workout. As I walked away, I could hear her crackling and pinging as if she didn't want me to leave. I did.

I went inside the house, but before I got undressed, I grabbed my camera, and started taking pictures of the chaos outside. Then, as I usually do when I have my camera in the vicinity of her, I started a photo shoot in my driveway.

I named the album, "ti Personified" to reflect the epiphany I had in the driveway 10 minutes prior. I took a load of pictures in the light diminishing snow.

As I was standing there, next to my sleeping beauty, photographing her every contour, I heard an un-nerving rumble. I looked up to see a wall of snow cascading upon me from the roof above. It nearly knocked me off my feet! I quickly regained my composure and looked over at my once peacefully sleeping companion. She was screaming, yelping, and flashing her lights. Startled, she was, as she had been sleeping so delicately. I proceeded to calm her by pushing her quiet button, and I took one last picture of my distressed queen, from where I stood.

It is that picture, I decided, that meant the most to me. It is that picture, I decided, that I would make into a 318ti.org signature.

Regards,
Jeff

Hey guys, im still trying to get inspiration for a photo this year to go into the running to be on the calender. I was wondering what you guys thought of this one since the color is just amazing and I just detailed it. Calender material or should I try what I did for this years calender and be more scenic with a background?



ps click the image because on the boards it looks kind of squished and rigid
