Its time to begin out Monthly Nomination for out Truck of the Month. The them will be"on the trail - the best shot of your rig running your favorite trail."

It can be anything from a simple trail to a hard turning off camber situation. It is up to you.

You will until the end of the month to get some pictures in.

Don't forget:

Announcement will be made describing the TOTM theme. Members will then have a 4 week period of time to post there submission. (For example: On 08/01 a thread will be started for the nominations. On 09/01 you will have 5 days to vote on the previous submissions (date will vary depending on when the 1st is). This way each winning member will receive a month to be the TOTM.)

One picture per member.

Anyone is welcome to submit a picture (Admins, Mods, & Members).

You may change your pictures if you like. Just do it before the time is up.

All entries must be of a Ford Explorer, Sport Trac, Mercury Mountaineer, Mazda Navajo, Ect. Go by the what the forum is for guys. Please don’t post pictures of your non-RBV's as your submission. There will be special times for you to do that.

You may submit any picture of anyones rig that is on this forum. (UPDATED 05/08/2012) Hope this helps you out.

Also do not Photoshop your rig to make it better but you can blank the license plate if you wish.

There will be a thread for submissions in which three pictures will be chosen at random. Then these three pictures will be put into a "Final Voting Thread" in which the entire forum will be able to choose this months winner. This ramdom voting will be done by giving each picture a number that I will know only. Then I will "PM" a random member here and have them choose three numbers from the list that will be given to them. The numbers will not be linked to their post number.

We will begin voting on the October winner on the 1st.

Also do not forget that the September winner was Xeek's 1991. Click Here.

Thanks guys,
Burns

its HDR. 3+ pictures at different exposures combined to get all the details between them all to show up in one pic pretty much. depending on camera technology these days, it may not be 'photoshopped' lol.

Bingo - Some shots turn out pretty good in HDR- On that note, I'll go ahead pay it forward, and nominate 2TimingTom with this picture from Peak10 in Breckenridge, CO (which climbs to 13,402 ft. !)
