To kick off 2008 we're going to try something a bit different. Instead of the traditional "chop this picture" we're giving a goal for you to work towards - and letting you choose any picture you want.

Here are the two options for the contest:

Audi Q5

BMW 5er

Click the choices in the poll to make your vote.

Thanks

Finally had some time to make chop again. Based on the Jaguar C-XF Concept and the BMW CS Concept.

Mine's not to fancy. I only had time to do something simple... and there's some flaws.

My exams are here, so I have to cram, and I don't have time for PS contests. Here's my entry though,

The BMW M5 Volcom Touring Wagon.

So far I'm really liking this contest, I think its working out well.

Steve, I don't know if you know but CSS isn't really a big fan of tuner cars like in your entry. When I was setting the contest I mean't do the next generation BMW 5er, but as I didn't specify anything it's fine.

Alright, so because tuning is recommended I took my first shot at "Redesign" last night, and this is it.

A 5 Series.

yes, you can only submit one entry, so he will have to use his first entry

Sadly Steve, they're right...

I will allow your first entry but I won't include your second in the voting.

So far I think this contest has been quite a success - anyone else have any feelings about the new format?

Everyone using same image-

Good - easier to compare if they are all same original image, cool to see how we work differently with the SAME image.
Bad - you have to chop the image even if you dont like it

Everyone chooing different images-

Good - more original, chops are more unique. you can choose images you prefer to work on
Bad - nothing bad I can think of.

OVERALL I prefer the new style of competitons I think ;) I personally like my 5 series chop and might not have made it like that if we had to use a specific image.

All you need to do is put tags around the links. Like this:

Edit:

It seems that blogspot wont let you use the image like this. You will need to use photobucket or imageshack. I'll use imageshack below.

The only reason I said to choose the first entry was because I thought you might all dislike Steve using his second entry.

Since this isn't the case I will allow Steve to use his second entry, and so his first entry will not be taken into account in the voting.

As some of you have said you enjoy the format we will definatly have a similar one again. I think alternating between the two would work very well - keeping things fresh.

All going well I will close this tomorrow evening (GMT) so if you haven't already posted your entry...
