    Post **2014 Coupe Calendar Voting Thread**

    Hello all,

    The time has come to vote on the outstanding pictures that we all posted!

    The poll allows you to vote for AS MANY pictures as you would like, ONLY once! The number above the picture corresponds with the number in the poll. Please make decisions for your top 12, and submit your votes.

    These photos were chosen from the perspective of "Can we look at this picture for an entire month?". For example, cell phone and driveway-type shots were not included. I gathered the help and opinions of 5 BMW enthusiasts(non Z3 owners) so there will be no bias. Basically, the 2014 calendar will include pictures with more artistic value. (Some photos will be flipped vertically to have different angles)

    Voting will automatically close on November 16, this allows you more than two weeks to get your votes in I will message the original poster of the pic for a "higher resolution" version. Let's not get too technical on how this will work. Just vote and have some fun!

    You guys likely have DropBox blocked at work. I think it was the only image hosted on DropBox.

    I'm surprised that you didn't include one of the Red/White/Blue M coupe pics that I submitted for possible placement for the JULY Calendar Page??
    Any chance for you to reconsider adding it to the poll for that purpose?

    Was the quality good enough? I know that was one of the requirements.

    Edit: Voted.

    Im not a professional photog, but I shot my pics using my 14 MP Olympus PEN SLR camera. I see that a couple of the pics that were selected for the final cut were shot by professional photogs. IMO pics submitted by Professional photogs should be disqualified. This is a Z3 enthusiast board and not a car enthusiast /pro photographer board so the final cut pics should represent submissions from car enthusiasts over the pros. I really thought that my patriotic pic was a no brainer for submission for the board members to vote on for the July calendar page! Oh well. No biggie.

    @KingCoupe

    Your patriotic-theme shot did in fact make it into the final 25, but unfortunately we had to slim it down just a bit more. I can also confirm that 80% of these shots were not taken by a professional photographer.

    I am trying to create a collage-type page in the calendar for all the photos that didn't make it into the poll. You will most likely see your photos there

    Keep the votes coming guys!

    A lot of good photos this year! Hexagones car might make it in twice and I have absolutely no problem with that.

    And glad to see one of my snow pics made it in especially since it's not the best quality photo. The lighting wasn't very good, my Coupe is filthy and it was taken with a crappy camera! But that contrast and the snow sticking up on the rear fenders.

    RabbiDoom, I may be able to retouch your photo to make it so that the black coupe isn't hidden.

    I have higher resolution if needed. It would be perfect for the month of December!

    I'm sure you'll be able to. I grabbed the photo from the website and dragged it into Photoshop. A couple of tweaks using levels, curves, and a bit of dodging, worked wonders. Took maybe two minutes, if that.

    Respectfully submitted,

    Paul

    Huh... then you might also be able to drop the rear end of my car just a touch then, too!

    As a roadster owner, it pains me to say that the Coupe pictures are of a much higher calibre than the roadsters... I know many of these look like pro photographs, but that's not a bad thing, right?

    I think about 50% of the roadster pictures are very "pro" looking, while the coupe photos are near 80%.

    with there being so many more roadsters in the world, it's funny how you Coupers really dominate the forum!

    I wouldn't worry too much about it. Looks like there's a fair chance neither one of my pictures will get voted in anyway.
