    This thread is for general discussion about the photo competition and the 2015 calendar.

    The idea is to post all your comments relating to the competition here (thereby keeping the other threads in this sub-board free of general banter).

    Just a quick one ...

    Anyone wondering about the size quality of other info about the shot can you take a peek at the achive calendar info placed on previous years forum threads. they are right at the bottom of the forum main page.

    Loads of interesting stuff in there

    Cheers

    What makes a great photo?......

    ....one that tells a story




    Everyone's got a good story to share. Make sure you get yours into the photo competition. :046: :046:

    There's nothing in the photo competition rules that says it has to be YOUR bike.

    Watching someone else can be entertaining ..... :123:




    Come on guys, scour those photo records....must be a gem or two in there somewhere.

    Here's a couple of gems that made it into the 2013 Calendar....



    Fancy having a shot?

    Post your 3 photos, and you never know. With up to 30 photos to be selected, everyone's got a good chance.   :028:

    Payback time.....



    Now, if my local hand car wash place was to expand into doing bikes, I would definitely consider it..



    And not a Rokstrap in sight!



    Limitations exist only in the mind!

    Back to reality, there's 10 weeks left before the close of the photo competition, so make sure you get your 3 entries in. Don't get caught napping and miss it!




    Remember , you can enter 3 of your favourite photos into the competition. Win or not, its the taking part that counts!  :152: :152:.........and its for charity too!

    Just as a quick note I am about 50% through the artwork for next years calendar but hope to have woken Rocket Ron up (see last picture above) to proof and approve by the end of this week  :046: :046: :046: :046:

    As per last year I guess Rocket will post up and example page as a preview.




    So .................. Anyone who maybe has thought "Hmmmm should I" ........................... then go on do it! Order one of these Calendars and feel good that you have contributed to a great and worthy cause!

    Lets try to get the numbers up a bit and give yourself a years worth of functional bit of kit that shows off some of the best pictures from around the world.
