Truck Of The Month October 2019

Truck Of The Month October 2019

Postby 19trax95 [OP] » Oct 02 2019, 1:04am

SilveradoSierra.com's monthly Truck of the Month competition is here! Take the best picture, get the most votes, and you might just take home the bragging rights as winner of our Truck of the Month competition.

This month's theme is:
Your truck and the sights of fall.

The goal for this months theme is to go out and get your best two pictures of your truck with nature as your back drop. Can be a nice colorful picture of your truck in the mountains with the leafs changing, or even your house with Halloween decorations.

Be creative with your truck and get those cameras clicking to claim fame to October 2019's Truck Of The Month!
Remember, this competition is as much about the picture quality as it is about featuring your truck.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now we'll get to the formalities:

Competition Rules ***just like that voice message you get when you call tech support, please read the rules as they have changed*** I don't want to hear any crying when I constantly delete your entry because you didn't FULLY read the competition rules.

1) You are limited to one entry with two photos per member, per month! This means once you submit your entry, you cannot offer substitutes or additions later on in the same competition.

2) The winner will not be allowed to enter the Voting Booth for another Truck of the Month competition for SIX (6) months (you can play along and showcase your truck, but will not be allowed into the top ten for 6 months). ***Ineligible for this competition: Chevrolado(September), 19Trax95(July), Djentlemanjoe (June), JCoppola (May), Silverado9306 (Apr)

3) Photograph submissions are allowed during the first 3 weeks of every month. After the 21st day, the top 10 trucks will be entered into the poll for the final voting. The poll will be open until the end of the month, and then the winner will be declared. However, if the number of entries exceeds 20, on the 22nd we will be asking the community to submit their picks for the Top 10. On the 23rd we will compile a list to determine the final Top 10. All dates are tentative...

4) You may include a comment in your entry, but please do not comment on other member's entries. If there is some issue with an entry please feel free to PM any Moderator about it. Extraneous comments will be deleted!

5) Any photos that have any evidence of re-touching, lighting effects, color saturation or Photoshop work will be deleted immediately. Repeat offenders may be banned from entering the competition. Cropping is allowed as well as blocking out your license plate, but no other manipulation of the photo is allowed.

6) Sad we have to address this... If the moderating team feels there is any indication of manipulating the results of the poll to determine the monthly winner, any and all participants suspected of bamboozling the results will be banned from the website for 30 days and barred from participating in TOTM for the current month + the next 12 months.

7) To avoid confusion and to streamline the competition, Staff Members will chose the Truck of the Month theme.

8) For pictures that are not directly related to the TOTM theme for the month, moderators reserve the right to delete the post, no questions asked.

*** FYI, Many of our members use work computers that may limit websites they can view. It would be in your best interest to upload attachments at the post or upload your pics to your personal member gallery as opposed to linking from imgur, Photobucket or your Facebook page, etc. If people can view this website while at work, they will be able to see your pics. This becomes very important when our members are voting for their Top Ten and during the Vote. ***

If site members have an idea for a theme for the month, they may post it here: T.O.T.M. Themes/Ideas
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
It is very hard to find just 10 members to enter in the voting booth. Here are a few tips to help make the list:

1. Enter two Pictures. Take full advantage of the competition rules. Different angles are great.

2. When taking your pictures, take multiple pictures of each angle. You may find some shots came out better than others. Since everyone's photos are digital, it only costs a little memory till you capture the best shots.

3. Feature your whole truck, bumper to bumper. Regardless of the theme, the idea is to feature your truck.

4. Keep true to the theme. If necessary, explain the reasoning why you feel the pictures meet the theme.

5. Do not edit your photo. Cropping is okay, and blocking out the license plate, but if the picture appears to have the color/brightness/contrast/etc. altered it will be one of the first to be cut.

cant think of much more fall themed than parked by the river, salmon fishing, in the rain, with a bonfire going :)

bonus pic, not an entry - the salmon thats on her way into the smoker in about 30 mins :)

based on length x girth measurements we estimate her at right around 21 lbs, couldn't locate my scale before we left so no way to get an actual weight at the time of catch sadly :(

Well, it may be officially Fall according to the calendar, but here in central Texas when I took these photos it was still 96 degrees at 6PM. The lying weatherman says we're getting a cold front next week, but I'm not holding my breath.
Also, here in central Texas, we don't get that beautiful fall foliage like up north. We have mostly live oak trees and cedars. Halloween is coming but my wife and I don't decorate. We're out in the country and there are no "trick or treaters."

The real Fall activity in this rural Texas County has been the cotton harvest, and man, this year it's been a good one! My truck is positioned at the end of a double line of rolls of cotton that's about a mile or so long, and at the far end it changes over to large rectangles of cotton about the size of a 40 foot shipping container. This is one of 3 cotton gins in the county.

Drove from Anchorage, AK to Omaha, NE to buy a camper and towed it back October of last year. What an amazing road trip that was!

Fall for me means fishing the striped bass migration in South Jersey. The only thing changing colors is the sod banks, no leafs out there.
