My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Alright, folks, we are now accepting photo submissions for next year's TRS Calendar (2023 cal year). I'm not going to impose a theme. Just send them in and we'll see what we get. If we get a bunch of photos, we'll vote like last year. If not, I'll use artistic license and put something together.

Here are the rules.

1. Email your full resolution image files to me at "ericsbenner{at}gmail{period}com (you know how to fix that address). Posting photos here on the site does NOT work. The site reduces the file size and I can't use them. We can also transfer files via Google Drive. But email is easier.

2. Image files must be 1600 x 1200 pixels OR LARGER. Bigger is better. Size DOES matter. That translates to 11.29" x 8,79" at 200dpi minimum. Landscape orientation works best. But I can get creative with portrait oriented images.

3. Include the word "calendar" in the subject line. I will set up my email to automatically put these in a special folder so they're easy for me to find in my email. Somebody accused me of playing favorites and ignoring his submission last year. That is not true. I searched my email for hours and never saw any submission from him.

4. In the email, please include some info such as; your user name on the forum, truck info like year, model, engine, modifications, etc. all the stuff that makes you proud of your truck and this photo. Last year, I had to go back and ask a bunch of people for info.

5. I will accept submissions through to Sunday, October 15. I will then get them posted and voting will be open October 23-31.

6. All TRS forum members are eligible.

Helpful hints;
  • try to get your pictures on a nice day with sunshine or, if at night, make sure there is good lighting.
  • try to get the picture in focus
  • try to make the truck fill most of the picture, but not all the way out to the edges. If I have to zoom in to make it look good, we will lose resolution and It won't be as good.
  • action shots are great
  • Your truck does not have to be "perfect". As seen in previous years, a well composed artistic picture of an imperfect truck works just as well.
  • Give me the seasons. It makes it easier if I have a photo that naturally looks like winter, spring or fall when I am deciding which truck goes in which month of the calendar.
  • We like ALL types of Rangers/RBV's - RWD, 4x4, lowered, lifted, racers, rat rod Rangers, overlanders, haulers. I will put them all up for voting.
  • You may submit more than one photo. In some cases, I might create a collage for your truck. Otherwise, I will try to choose the best of your submissions for voting.
  • Please don't inundate me with too many photos of your truck. Quality is better than quantity. Pick your best 1-5 pictures.
  • You do NOT need to edit your photos. Sometimes you end up saving the edited version too small. I can fix color and lighting within reason. I also make sure license plates are blanked out to preserve your truck's identity. On one truck last year, I was even able to "splatter snow" on the front license plate to cover it. Someone else asked me to remove a tree that was in an unfortunate place.
Ok, I think that's what I needed to say.

Good luck.

Congratulations @That_4.0_ranger for being the first to submit photos! You have won the honor of being mentioned right here in this posting.

This is the time to get snow pictures. Try to have decent lighting and focus.

The less you submit, the more irritating I will be.

It's ok. I'd rather have too many than not enough.

Hey. It's cheaper to take pictures of it than to fill the fuel tank.
