Jeep Contest Photos September 05

Recommended Posts

SO what exactly, do most people not get about, "No Photoshoped entries allowed."????

Some of them are really cool looking but they are not allowed considering the rules.

Also, thanks for the woderful cropping job Jeep!!!

Anyone who wants to check it out it's called "Old Glory"

I am not whining for votes here, I just believe they could fix things a little bit.

Personally I lik ethe one with the Jeep resting on the dog's head in front of the American Flag. It's a perfect high resolution, and color toned photo with a little humor in it.

Sorry I am at work so I dont have time to include links.

Got to go....

We're one of the dummies that didn't read the rules closely. We photoshopped our July picture and entered it and then about two days later I ran across the rule. So it was alot of wasted time and now, no chance to win. Oh, well it is a good picture and we had fun. But anyway maybe some other folks didn't read the rules too closely either.

Well I don't mean to make it sound like I am really pissed off about it.

Actually, I wish we could mess around with them.

There are some great altered photos along with some imaginative props.

These are my picks:

It would be nice if a little enhancement were permitted. Not adding things to the photos, but cropping, or brightening. Andy Bear and I were at Fort McHenry on a greyish day, and the camera tends to take darkish pictures anyway. But it's still a great picture: "That our flag was still there"

I guess the thing is, not everyone knows how to enhance their photos, so it only seems fair to not allow any.

 

Here's our entry

Since there are already enough white jeep topics I thought that I would just use an older one instead of making a new one.

 

The August voting has begun and here is our submission. I would appreciate any votes that y'all might be willing to send our way.

 

I was trying to go for humor in my picture (bears as geocachers) and hope that it comes across that way.

 

Thanks

Please vote for My Photo. Like the last two month's, should I win, the GPS will be donated to a cacher who lost hers. It's a good cause and I'd appreciate the help.

We had a lot of fun making our August photo Tarin's Scrapbook Memories. The pictures in the album were all taken while on geocaching trips around our beautiful state of Wyoming. You can click on the image to see it in a better size and more detail.

 

The left hand page has pictures of the jeep amonsgt dew drop covered ivy, under a makeshift tent, and in front of a sunset over Laramie Peak. We also found a nice overlay for this page that even is titled "The Great Outdoors" at the top. The right hand page shows the jeep fishing on a rock at the edge of a pond, cresting a boulder on the way to a cache (big green bucket in the background), in front of a rainbow after an afternoon mountain thunderstorm, and rolling up from a field into a rockscape. There were too many pictures to choose from from our adventures so we did for Tarin what we usually do with our trip photographs anyway - scrapbooked them.

 

Of course, we are going to permanently keep this layout to remind us of how much fun we had geocaching this summer - even though it is showing Tarin's adventures with us! We even have Tarin decorated with scrapbooking cutouts of camping gear as he admires the photos. If you look closely, he even has some marshmallows on a stick to toast!

 

Any votes for the photo would be appreciated as we are hoping to win a GPSr for our friends in New Orleans that started caching with us during our vacation there last year and havent been able to go since due to a lack of a GPSr.

I see nothing wrong at all with people campaigning (this was FAR from begging) for votes. There's nothing unfair about it, an any of the entrants have the same opportunity to do it.

Here is my Sept entry, I can't believe I actually found a WJTB, they're scarce in Nor-eastern Ca.

AtlantaGal, If I win the GPSr, you can give it to your friend. I don't need any more of them.

Wow, that's really a nice gesture. Thanks for the offer.

 

We don't vote on Sept entries until Oct 1st. That's a very nice picture. I'll be taking mine this week in Las Vegas.

LET PEOPLE VOTE HOW THEY WANT TO VOTE. YOU DON'T NEED TO BEG FOR VOTES ON THE FORUM. LETS KEEP IT FAIR FOR ALL WHO ENTERED.

Dang W360, what's with the hostilities? No need to be on the offense, IMHO. Let's keep it friendly, a'ight? :huh:

 

<_<

 

BTW, VOTE FOR MY ENTRY!!! It has my dog Jill in it!!! She wouldn't sit still!!!

Some good photos already! I like Jagman714's Up a Creek.

 

Here's my Jeep photo for "Traction," but it fits along with the Water Fording and Ground Clearance goals as well.

 

My entry for "Traction"

 

I'd really like to win a new GPS. I bought ours for my husband and now he complains how much I use it! He's been hogging it when we're out caching together so I need my own now!

Here's a link to my entry for September's "Traction." Steep? If you think its a good photo, please vote for it. And no, it's not Photoshoped, it's a real pic. Thanks.

There are lots of great photos entered in the jeep contest. I had a lot of fun trying to get a white jeep and was ever so happy when we found one. From what I understand, 25% of your "score" is with the voting. It was hard trying to come up with an idea for the photo but I think we did pretty good. Please take a look and see what you think? I hope you can vote for me. I also am curious what other photos people like. It's hard to judge others when you enter your own.

 

Mine is No. 25 in the list and labeled "Escape Your World" .

 

This should be the link to it:

I'm going to try to get the photo here, hope it works. I did not realize there were so many posts on the contest until this morning. It's hard not to beg for votes I guess. How do you put the personal icons on the left? Some of those are really good. They should have a contest for them.

Shameless plug for my photo for the October contest. Knowing my affinity for Breast Cancer Awareness, geocaching AND my longing for a Jeep of my own, I took advantage of my annual "visit" to the radiologist. Please consider voting for mine, if only for the "courage" I had to post my mammo... :rolleyes:

Thanks.

Do note, the Jeep is also my namesake....

Bling for Boobs...

For those of you who submitted photos for September and viewed the others, what ones would you pick for finalists (NOT counting your own, because of course it's the best).

I wouldn't say that mine was the best but top three for sure. :(

 

Actually since mine doesn't count here are three/four that I thought were pretty nice.

I don't know how closely they follow their own rules. I mean I've seen photos win that have NOTHING to do with the geocaching experience, lol.

I agree, like that construction, ("Kids at work") photo. But you know it could be they just scored real high on some of the criteria and that was enough. I would think the creativity would hold the most weight. I think that's where you have a good shot with your October photo.

Congratulations to the winners and runnerups for the September contest -- some of the photos on this thread are in those categories! (I won't say which ones because I don't want to be the one to ruin the surprise if they haven't found out yet.) Anyway the winner's gallery is finally up, and it already includes the September winners.

 

Someone on this thread is going to be getting a new GPS soon! :D

Nice to see the winners from the other months.

 

I'm surprised to see that my favorite photo for july didn't even win a tshirt tho (it was the one with the US flag molded in the shape of the US with the jeep sitting on it). Weird. Also, I thought the rules state no pets in the photos, yet a pic with a pet won.

 

I told ya they didn't follow their own rules, lol!

 

Congrats to the GPS winner and tshirt winner in this thread for this month.

I had a White Jeep that I painted purple & yellow (at my daughter's request), but that was long ago before the 'paint job' goal.

 

My wife and I graduated from Syracuse, and I recently picked up White Jeep TB "Bruce", and turned it into WJTB " 'Cuse "

First let me say "Yippppeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" with regard to my own win and, no, I have not received a GPS yet.

 

Where did you see something about "no pets"? I hope that's not a rule. I like my picture and it would be nice to win the Jeep, but the picture of the Jeep on the pup's head is really, really cute. I like how sharp it is, I like the details (flag in back, scarf on the dog's neck) and I love the expression on the dog's face.

 

If I were judging this contest (opinion subject to change pending the October winners) I'd be tempted to select the dog with Jeep photo as my grand champion. But if any judges disagree with me and feel like voting for an alligator eating a Jeep, that's o.k. with me too. I mean, the judges have already proven themselves to be brilliant so who am I to argue with them?

It's in the official rules. Says no people or pets in photos. It's in the same section that speaks about copyrights I believe.

I thought I was going to miss the October entry deadline! Here is my entry being that you showed yours. I wonder how many entries there will be this time? Any guesses? Good luck to all of you!

If you get tired of seeing this entry VOTE :blink:

 

I am going to have to come up with another reason to visit this forum now that the contest is over. I guess it is time I motivate my kids to launch a few new TBs to track.

 

Nothing wrong with a bit of combining parts... :ph34r:
