If I did not come up with any new ones I liked,  I was thinking of submitting something from this past summer's trip.   I was hoping for VA scenery though.

I drove around yesterday evening,  looking for something,  but did not come up with any shots that I liked better than the earlier 2.     This morning,   I decided to drive the Jeep to work (and to breakfast buddies),  since it was so warm.    I was hoping I might come across a photo op,   but it was really cloudy and dull light.

This is a cross-post,  (from the "Real Work" thread),   but thought I would include here.

I put this on the Facebook group forum asking if a photo of trash would be ok for the calendar.  LOL



I like the color in this one.


If you did not see the earlier posting  . .   I was on the way to landfill,  when a crosswind blew the lid off of trash can.   I had to pull over,  and run back to get the lid.      When I came to Jeep,  I thought it looked like a cool photo.

I had a chance to see the photos on a bigger screen and not on my phone.  I like #1 better now.

Oh no,  #2 was starting to pull clearly ahead,  but back to being close.   LOL


I am going to look at originals tonite and submit one.     The hi-res originals do look quite noticeably better than the compressed ones attached here.

My photo skills are not up there like yours. But I just took this one 30 minutes ago in front of my house. The bright green of spring really stands out.

From a quick glance, I like the top pic the best.  Something about the skyline perspective to the jeep.  I hope the flat fender makes it into the calendar.

Thanks everyone for the help deciding,   but I think this calendar is going to be a bust.

The deadline to enter has passed,   only about 30 people entered the contest.  (this is in a fairly active group of 350+ members,  so I am a little surprised at the lack of participation).

In my opinion,  easily half the entries are not even close to calendar worthy,  and only a handful would look cool hanging on the wall.

I can't imagine too may people are going to commit to buying a calendar with this collection of photos.   Probably only 12 people,   each of the winners,     to get a calendar with their photo on it.  haha

Oh well,    I had fun trying to come up with a decent photo,  and enjoyed reading your comments etc. 

(Wilson is in the top 10 of votes,  even though entering late). Smile
