    Shot on Oneplus 5 by @otto2 , graphical edit by @Bouncer71

    Hello dear photography friends.

    My name is Otto, and I am the host of the march shot on One Plus contest.

    This time we ll come back to photography with colours, but feel free to post Black&White pictures as long as they meet our new theme:


    Update: Pictures can be taken from the past 12 months!!

    As a special challenge, there are 4 sub themes, changing weekly, and we will start with:

    Week one: Historic cars.

    Week two: Historic motorbikes.

    Week three: Historic trucks and tractors.

    Week four: Historic machines.

    Important: the current weekly theme is stated in bold red. Sample pictures below.

    Get a deep dive in the automotive world, smell the oil, feel the vibrations, hear the sound of the racetrack.

    Get your fingers dirty with grease, but keep your lenses clean!

    Here in germany a car counts as historic, when it s more than 30 years old since the day of its first registration.

    Pretty sure it s different around the world, but nevertheless there are enthusiasts all around the world who love old technology and wonderful designs.

    Just some inspirations :

    All pictures shot on Oneplus devices. No edits despite of some cropping.


    Try some ununsual perspectives to catch the design:




    Details matter!



    We are on the race track!


    What time is love?


    Official Oneplus staff tested car!

    @Adam Krisko won t forget his ride with this one!


    Week two: Historic motorbikes.

    Feel the wind on your skin, turn the throttle and enjoy the acceleration.

    Week three: Historic trucks and tractors.

    Week four: Historic machines.

    How Do We Select Winners?

    The pre-selection team
    consists of: @Bouncer71 , @cdnfarmer , @hennes , @otto2 , @script , @TibiTibi , and @woSch. We check all pictures of the contest, discuss, which we think are the best, and collect them in a separate thread. Then this group of experts, plus OnePlus staff members, go in a second round through that collection and nominate the 4 or 5 best pictures of the current week. Out of this elite the final weekly winning picture gets selected. It's really a long and careful process.

    Finally, the selected picture has to get checked! Therefore it's needed to contact the person that has posted the picture, ask him or her to send in the original uncompressed file, to get the EXIF data checked. Only after that final check the winning picture can be announced in the forum. And again, it's never settle.

    So, I have some pictures taken a few years ago with my oneplus 2 and 5.... If i post them as examples and not as an entry, would that be fine @otto2 ?

    Please don't do that. Otherwise this thread might get flooded with example pictures. You can ofc post them in the non-contest thread.

    Yes, indeed. A contest should include some challenge,like finding an object and shooting the very best picture. i recommend to the users: Start looking "with new eyes" at your surroundings. Don t find a car? Check for a motorbike/ truck/ tractor / machine and post in another week. :)

    Hi. I was unable to edit my first post and thus the second one. I will try to click the pic of a real vintage car when I find one. This Shelby Cobra is a vintage model car set which I built patiently peace by peace. Labour of love.
