Time to vote.

Remember, this is not a BEST photo competition. We already have one of those. This is the best 3 model collection that fits the theme. That being said, there is no criteria to how you choose the best 3 models.

I went with Technica's classic trio. The 350GT is such a beautiful car, and that is the most rare model of all the models. The Muira has to be the most beautiful. And the Urraco is just awesome.

Thanks for the votes, guys! Technica's trio got my vote, as it seemed most likely to be shown on the actual TG program.

Boy this is such a cool place. I didnt bother to vote because I could see it was a rigged game to start with. Up front Preisman says not to vote for the best photo but instead vote for the best 3 lamborghinis. Actually a photo wasnt even necessary. Those who have 3 or more lamborghinis could just state what they are, and those who are most impressed will give their vote. Then the next thing he does is tell us who he is voting for. What a nice way to influence people. Im sure he wouldnt have said anything unless he felt it needed saying. Its unfortunate that not everyone owns three lamborghinis and thats probably why there was such a poor turnout both in submissions and votes. Congratulations justinpkw. It is both a nice shot and a nice collection. I just upped my collection to 2 lamborghinis. Still one short.

Bynx's picture is so amazing. I love Eddy's GTRs, those are so rare and seeing the three together is so nice. I absolutely loveee Alex's LP640s, he put THE BEST three shades out there in one picture and it made me jealous 'cause I only have the yellow :(. I do think Technica's picture is what Top Gear would use in an episode, that would be so cool and funny, and those models are super beautiful, but the picture itself is very simple, just 3 cars on the floor and camera's shadow. What we should do? I'm not sure how should I vote here lol

I didnt take nice pictures for this game because I read the rules. If I do not have models that fit the theme, I simply wait for the next one. Rules are rules. Still no doubt people will get influenced by what they see (Nice photo). POTM is somewhere around here. Do look around. :)

This gets more confusing to me. Rules are mentioned, and yet there were no rules. What was asked was simply a photo showing 3 lamborghinis. Nothing else. Not 3 different models, not 3 different colors. Just a photo with 3 cars. So by what criteria can anyone pick a photo especially when you are directed not to go by the photo. Curiouser and curiouser. If you didnt want me to enter Preisman you should have simply said my photo was ineligible. Since there is no prize or prestige in getting the most votes Im not miffed at all. But as the new kid on the block I would expect to get treated fairly and without bias.
By the way I notice that when the voting page was posted the subject of the contest changed. Now it is to be a photo of the best 3 model collection. Initially what you said should have been what you meant.

Bynx, I have a wonderful page that explains my intensions of this game. It also has several rules. One of which does say you need a photo. So, just stating 3 models will not work. As the title stats, it is a photo challenge.

http://www.diecastxc...and-background/

As for the quality of photo, this was intended to include more collectors. Members do not need to worry about their quality of photos for this competition. It is all about everyones collection. Sure, if you want to vote for the coolest photo, I can't stop you. But, That is not the intent of this game.

Is this game rigged. YES. It is rigged to include more members within the forum. Damn, you figured me out!

I do give my opinion and who I voted for. I am a member just like anyone else. I am still allowed to participate in games just like everyone else. Sorry if you feel me giving an opinion is wrong, but I will not change my post. I sure do hope you understand.

There is no intent on influencing anyones vote. Like I mentioned before, you can vote for any reason you want. I can't stop you. And if I could, I would not change anyones vote.

Good luck finding your 3rd Lamborghini.

As for the simple set of regulations for this month…it's to get everyone to get an idea of how the game will work. I wanted it originally to be Lamborghini's in 3 different colors and 3 different models (red Aventador, blue 350 GT, orange Urraco). I hope the following months will have a few extra requirements. I hope this makes you feel better about the rules.

Do you really think this game was made in spit of you? I had ideas for this months ago and discussed it with several of the Elite/Mods/Admins working out some details. I am not staying up all night thinking of ways to not include you in a game. That is nonsense. I am always looking for games and activities that will get members more involved here. If you think I would start a game in hopes you would not partake, then I would not be doing my part here at DX. I have started many games over the years I have been here. It has not been for myself, but to make this a community beyond "cool pic", "congrats on the new model", and "awesome model" comments.

Why would you think your photo would not be eligible? I specifically said if anyone cannot meet the requirements you can play in the grey area of the rules. And you did just that. I like your photo.

I am sure I have treated you fairly. I can't think of anytime I might have done anything to offend you. And even though you have said a few things that I do not agree with, I have not changed my opinion of you or how I treat you. You have a great skill in how you take your photos and looking forward to you sharing more about forced perspective. It is a technique that is not used here often and I am sure many members, including myself, would love to learn as much as we can from you.

When I said best models that fit the criteria, I mean it should follow the theme. That is all. I went for the classics, other went for the customs, and so on. It is everyones personal opinion. Not my opinion.

If you have anymore questions, concerns, criticism, or means of improving this game, please do not hesitate to bring them to me. I will gladly look over any way to improve this game. And that goes for anyone. I want this game to be fun for as many people as possible. Although, I will not change it to the best photo contest. We already have that. This is a game to show off members collection.

Sorry for being such a pain in the butt. This car thing is a whole new world for me. Before 3 months ago I had a single diecast of a DB5 because it was the Bond car. Since photography is my passion Ive collected another 42 cars to help me pursue that passion. I have a lot to learn about the ins and outs of collecting and collectors. Meanwhile I will post my pics and try to learn.

Ok I got more confused. This don't really make sense to me so maybe I'll participate when the point is more clear. I voted for Technica's trio as I think they fit in the Top Gear theme

I think you got the point. Vote on the models that you think best fit the theme.

Let's not forget it is a game ... and its new. It may take a little bit to get people on board. Jon's doing a great job to bring in some new ideas for us.

I picked Justinpkw 3 generations of Lamborghini flagship V12s as I could (and would love to) see this featured on a Top Gear episode.
I can picture May (the elder statesmen) driving the diablo reminicing on the good old days of Lamborghini.
Hammond in the Murcielago SV which of course he tested and drag raced an SLR 722 in Abu Dhabi.
And of course Clarkson in the Aventador which he adores for it being such a bonkers car.

I voted for Technica's classic trio because it kind of reminded me of the budget challenge they did with the older cars (Merak, 308 & Urraco).  Even though its obviously not exactly a budget trio of Lambo's.  Oh and for me it also wins because it has a Miura :)  My favorite trio was Eddy's GTR's but I couldn't picture them in a challenge.  And Justin's modern trio was pretty tempting too.  But great entries from everyone.

wish I'd been online earlier this month as I have a pic that would have worked (Countach, Diablo, Murciealgo).  Love the classics, but was very tempted by Eddy's Diablo GTR's..always loved that pic.
