To accompany this month's COTM nominations, you can post pics of your own
car here for a bit of shameless self-promotion (or other people's if
you're feeling generous!) or just if you feel like taking part in the
photo challenge. THIS IS NOT A THEME FOR COTM, IT'S JUST SUPPOSED TO BE A BIT OF FUN!

Take advantage of the nights still being long to take some nice night shots or showcase the best from your archives here!

Nice pics there guys! Kirade that snow looks perfect [:D]

Haven't managed to get any night shots of my car yet... well apart from
dirty and poorly lit ones! Definitely a bit tricky for this challenge

shiuming : looking at your shot on the Shell forecourt....did they have any issues with you taking the picture? I've always wanted to take a snap of my R under forecourt lights as it really shows off Deep Blue Pearl paint - do they mind? Are there any issues with using a camera in a petrol station?

No, not at all, mind you, I'm a regular there, it was fairly late and so not busy, and I did buy some petrol! [:)] The main problem I think is that it makes you very self-conscious, especially if you have a very conspicuous camera. I shot that without a tripod but still had to stand there for a while fiddling with shutter speed settings. I guess it depends on who is staffing the station, I reckon most won't mind as long as you don't behave strangely or hold up other customers - I guess it wouldn't hurt to just ask politely? If you've got a real special car like an R32 I'm sure they'll understand and be cool with it. R32 DBP looks stunning in most lighting conditions but I can imagine it's extra, extra stunning under petrol station forecourt lighting especially [Y]

A 3.2 V6 instantly qualifies me as a regular customer [:)] I'll keep my Canon S2 in the car for next time and I'll try for a shot.

No idea why I didn't shove a couple up here - too late for March's compo but I'm not that fussed really:

Looking out at Dartford:

Need to work out how to deal with the headlights and foglights in future tho [:|]
