HOLY! That's unbeatable!!
I know I'll use it myself on my laptop (and I presume most TCers will do so).
Best to you too!

Thanks mate! Honestly, it was nothing short of magic to get this exact shot, I will post another showroom entry with the remaining pics shortly and a description of the events that unfolded that day. Thank you again Erich, and also to everyone else that has posted a comment or browsed this showroom entry and smiled. You guys make it all worthwhile

this has my vote too. i might not actually use it as my desktop image, but i'd definitely hang it on a wall in my garage near my collection. i love these big guys and the shot transmits a sense of kinetic and visceral excitement of the 'hobby' that we all find so captivating. these things are like pets. they have personality. some people might look at R/C as a speed contest, like racehorse owners must do, but our beloved tamiyas have individual character ... like an english bulldog, or a dalmatian, or a schnauzer. the connection is more personal.

berman

20-Dec-2012

Wow thank you for you thoughts, and i agree with you, so many people getting into rc are infatuated with speed, and it seems to be one of the top two questions asked (along with 'how much?'). But these old rc's have a flair, stance, character and charisma that only vintage rc can replicate. I love the way the blackfoot here looks as it jumps, like its got all four paws out ready to pounce, and the beetle in the distance is edging out the blackfoot as if this jump was the finish line, giving it all or nothing. I am flattered you would consider hanging this in garage beefmuffin! Thank you!

hey neil - would you be willing to post the full resolution version of this shot so i can have it printed for my garage?

Old_School_Sang

29-Dec-2012

Congrats on the winning! Great shots. Beach are always fun. Too bad I'm about 2,000 km to the ocean. I think I would spend every day on the beach with my RC

berman

29-Dec-2012

Guys thank you so much for the congrats! Beefmuffin I think the original is only slightly bigger than the one to the left, it is only 2mp? Not sure why an 11mp camera is taking pics at 2mp? I am looking into it. Old school sang, I know what you're saying, because I am so close I think that is why 95% of my pics are here. If you ever get the chance, give it a go!

Congratulations also from me,
you did an epic photo, Neil!

beefmuffin

31-Dec-2012

hey berman - well when you download the image from TC it either stores it as a much lower resolution JPG or it serves it that way in the browser. the file you get is 72dpi and about 180kb. i'm sure the original is at least a couple of megabytes. i wonder if there's a way to post it as a file for download on TC? if not, maybe you could email it to me? it's great for my garage because not only is it an awesome shot of two beauties, it's also a sunny beach - which is in major contrast to the grey winter weather and florescent lighting!

sunnyjai

Hey Neil, my heartfelt congratulations! I was not surprised and knew you were gonna win - epic photo mate! And Happy New Year Cheers

Thank you so much fellas! I am so grateful for all your comments and votes, it really means alot to me! I dont know how you guys were confident I would win, I've looked time and time again at the other entries, and it took me nearly a week to decide who to vote for! The calibre was certainly high!

Neil, Congrats! Personally I'm glad you won as it demonstrates good karma! You sent me those c clips, at no cost, when you certainly didn't have to... and then you win the photo comp! see... karma.. Magic photo mate!

berman

7-Jan-2013

Haha thanks Paul! I dont know if it's karma or not, I'm glad I could help you out, I get a kick out of sending little bits around the world to help out fellow TCers! It means a lot that you appreciate it though my friend! Cheers!
