Nice! This is going to be a fun contest. Neighbors thought I was crazy when I took the contest pic in July of my GMT with my snowblower, sooooo why wouldn't I take a pic of my GMT with my wife n her freinds in bikinis in November? :crazy:

Nice topic WarGawd :thumbsup:

Really....lol we are lucky to see 40 degrees outside during the day, and I'm supposed to freeze my ass off while I dress scantly in front of my truck? :crazy:

Not to mention I would NEVER find a willing participant to do the honors, even if I went to my local strip club. I call a re-do/save for summer :raspberry:

There's nothing to suggest that the models absolutely have to be scantily clad, and those that may be don't have to be outside where it's cool. Besides there are other countries represented where the climates may be warmer now and colder during "our" summers.

BTW, that was Ed's embellishment to my suggestion to encourage the female members to become subject models - as far as I'm concerned male models are equally welcome. Could be a businessman with a briefcase stepping out the door held open by his chauffer. Could be a bunch of ski bunnies in full gear. There's a ton of latitude here - be creative :biggrin:

Edit: the car show/sales brochure/magazine cover was just a few suggestions that include a "model" to try and make the distinction from "normal" pictures where the person/people typically has no specific purpose for being included...hopefully that helps.

Creativity will not be an issue! Glad you elaborated on a few more details. I have a pretty good idea for my picture :biggrin:

Nothing was said about male models in the original post which is where I drew my conclusions from, but now that you have mentioned that a guy can pose, I will feverishly be working on my project....

I didn't make any "rules" as such. I just forwarded a topic suggestion to Ed, and he added a bit of his own spin to it...I was just trying to clarify what it was I had in mind originally.

A bit cold and rainy here so truck is dirty. I asked my wife if she'd help me out and pose with the Envoy and she told me to go pound salt :hissyfit:!!! Working on another idea for a pic, daughter maybe? It would be nice to see some examples tho.

I'm making progress - location & date are set, model is arranged. Spotted an incredible deal on a brand new d5100 this morning for less than 1/2 the price of the best deal I can find anywhere else. This gave me a really cheap option to have a good 2nd camera body always on standby - prob heading to town tomorrow to wheel and deal on some lens trades.

How old is your daughter? If you tell your wife you plan on posting your daughters pic on the internet for a bunch of lecherous old men like me, your wife may ixnay the daughter pic too. (IE don't tell the wife!!) :biggrin:

Lemme set the scene:

View attachment 23724

And introduce my lovely model Sarah - a Canadian girl who absolutely seized the challenge & braved the 1 deg C temp with a smile, just to show those Iowa strippers how it's done - though I have to admit heated seats was a welcome enticement :biggrin: :

View attachment 23723

Probably gonna take a day or two to review all the shots and make a choice - maybe I'll post the top 2 or 3.

OK, so despite screwing up EVERY ONE of over 100 shots for one reason or another I still got some that turned out decent enough. Camera was pretty forgiving of my mistakes. I'll be making a few prints for Sarah, but for those I'll be doing some post-shot correction. And since nobody else seems to be claiming any real estate here, I'll post my top 8 :biggrin:

I mentioned I was going to retouch some pics to do some prints for Sarah, I whipped off the first one in about 1/2 hr just to give her an idea what was possible. I pushed it a bit too far in this example, and also later noticed some lens distortion that was making her face a tad wider than it really is, but I thought I'd post it anyway (I'll redo it to her liking before I make any prints):

View attachment 23821

In the second example, I was a little more subtle, and I think you will see why I like my 2nd choice pic so much. Going in order the first one is a 100% crop of the original, the second has some minor skin correction, a slight tweak to her smile, a little lip color, sharper brighter eyes with a tiny bit of added intensity to her natural eye color, smoother hair and a very slight tan. In the third, I turned her into a blue eyed brunette, just to show her what it looked like:

Voymom you need to put the wedding dress back on and get some pics.

Finally someone takes some pics with a lady and they have a classy look.

I'd vote for an extention if Big Ed will give us one :thumbsup:. It's suppose to be nice here after today for the rest of the week. I have my shot in mind and the girls are willing, it's just a matter of gettin the shot. With at least 2 pics and hopefully more we will have something to vote for. Maybe someone else can get a pic in too?

LOL, if Ed says nay to the extension, I'll withdraw my submission, and just pick the same topic for contest #15! :raspberry: :rotfl:

{My guess is Ed will wanna see more female, scantily clad models too :wink:}

The question now is "How much did she want". If it was only a 1.00 then she loves you, if it was 50.00 perhaps not so much, and if it was 500.00 time to look for a new dog house. :undecided: :rotfl:LOL

in a way isn't your money her money so even if you don't give her money for this she will end up getting the money in the end for something else

Remember the earlier posts - you're allowed to do it, & for free if you like :rotfl:

So were you overcome by that fever, or is Mat(t?) demanding money too? :biggrin: :raspberry:

Yayyyy! {no, seriously! After all my wisecracks, I give credit where credit is due...:hail:} A for effort getting back into those getups too (or do I misunderstand? Maybe this is an actual wedding picture, taken before the contest? In which case it shows the "real-life" case of what really goes on at home, and not the parody it seems you're trying to portray? hehehe couldn't resist :biggrin:


Soooo IF I happen to get the nod in this contest, maybe I could structure the topic in such a way that guarantees we'll all see Mat in a pink bunny suit :biggrin: :rotfl: I definitely see some serious potential here.....



Vote for me everybody!!! hehehhe

{and no further submissions pleeeeeez!} :rotfl:
