*** Mini-Challenge #384: Let's talk about cars ***

Thanks go to LearningForeverIHope for hosting last mini challenge, and for choosing my autumn leafs in the wind as winner!

This one is inspired by one of the stranger songs that I like, "Let's talk about cars" (for reference: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOslA_kWuAk). And a weird series of photos I have been making over time, which I refer to as carscapes. Those are land or cityscapes which seemingly just happen to have a car in them. Or are they photos of a car which just happens to have a land/city scape behind them?

So, yeah, let's (talk about cars).

Kids playing with cars, a detail of a car, shots taken from cars, racing cars, a photo of your favourite car, or a photo of a rusty truck in the desert. A pic of your family car during a vacation, or a reflection in the paint of a car. Be imaginative, be creative, or just be lucky.

You are even allowed to enter photos not made by you, if a childhood car's photo is one you feel you would like to submit.

Have fun, guys and girls. Let's talk about cars!

(ps: you are allowed to post your images in separate posts, if that works out better for you).

Regular Rules

The host gives you a topic of interest. You post a maximum of three images. Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera.

You can do all the post processing you want. However, it is helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo (because we like to know).

Feel free to comment on other contestant’s images. If you want people to give you constructive criticism, ask for C&C.

The host chooses the winner, and the decision is final. No matter what you say, the host is likely not going to change their mind after the fact. Remember, it's all about fun and learning.

The winner then hosts the next challenge, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person. The winner has 48 hours to post the new challenge. If that doesn't happen 2nd place has 24 hours to do so, and if that doesn't happen it's up to the 3rd place winner.

Posting Guidelines

When posting your picture, change the Subject of your post to display your picture titles and/or your name. This way, when someone replies it will refer specifically to you. If all entries read "Re: *** Mini-Challenge xxx - ... ***" it would be very boring to scan the list.

Either embed your image in the thread or, if you must, supply a link to it. Keep in mind, however, most people don't want to click to open photos hosted elsewhere (i.e. on your website).

You may enter up to 3 pictures, but put them in a single post. Please give a title to each photo, this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments.

Please size your photo no bigger than around 1600 pixels on the longest dimension. This is to let those with smaller monitors see your image at full resolution. Please limit the file size of your entries to conserve bandwidth.

As a show of courtesy, and to save bandwidth, please remove the original post when replying, so you don't bring back any previous photos.
