This is a little OT, but I heard one of my old friends has sent Donna Douglas (The Elly Mae Clampet actress) a copy of some renders of my Beverly Hillbilly Shack and she loves it. I may be sending her a free copy of the model…lol. WOW huh?


grin


that is way cool music, what an honor to have Donna Douglas see your work

 

ok everyone, no more last minute renders now, gotta give us judges some time to go through and pick our favs…

We had it whole june ....  yesterday was first descent day to have some fun outside ... Hope it will spread from netherlands to you chohole wink


Well we did manage to send our Thunderstorms over the border and into England, not sure if they was happy about that, and yesterday was quite nice, but today it got a bit cooler again. Himself got caught out in one of the showers, and said there was hailstones mixed up in it. Yuk.

Well we have our weather mostly from your sides.. so waiting for hail now wink

Hi everyone

Here’s my take


Title : My sunny vacation

Great render. Really like lightning here !

music2u4u - 30 June 2012 03:59 PM

We are closing in on the last of the month. I have been very busy with RL this month and I appoligize for that. I have noticed there have been a huge number of entries. Some are not really what I would call pinups, but they are Summer and fun. I reached a point here where I saw so many coming in, that I decided to relax on the rules and just go with the fun. I was getting on my own nerves…lol.


My three judges…Krissy, Jeeperz, and BWSman have a real tough one voting for winners. I have my picks to make also. I assure you it will be tough. I want to thank Jeeperz especially this month for how attentive she has been through all this. With me being busy and not here, it would have surely fallen to the wayside if not for her. Even with kids all around her…lol. You are a great ETO, and a great friend. Thank you sooo much for the help. You too Krissy. Not sure what happened to BWSman, but he always surfaces when the going gets tough and releaves the stress with a wise comment. That’s what he does best.


Got a lot of donations this month, thanks all who donated. It’s what it’s all about…freebies.


ok all…lets get those last minute entries in. Midnight is just around the bend.


Oh…and thanks to that Real Man for the pinup. I ran all my mice away!!!!...hehehe.


smirk


grin

And thank you music for another fantastic competiton ... It was fun and exciting month !

Let’s try this again. I have posted the winners here two times already, let’s try for three. First time, for some reason, it did not take. Second time, I was interrupted by massive thunderstorms in my area, some of the worst I have ever seen. I lost my bedroom TV, and my son’s pooter, to power outage. It happened before I could get everything in the house unplugged. For real…that fast. The power went out for about two hours, when it came back on, these were no longer working. Got to go buy a new TV and pooter today. It will cost $160.00 to fix the TV, I can buy a new one for $250.00. Son’s pooter has XP, old anyway. New one…$300.00. So…lets try this again.


My judges were on the ball with their pics. So with theirs and mine, we came to this conclusion:


The two honorable mentions are:
hm1 - My Sunny Vacation - Takeo.Kensei
hm2 - Car Wash - Lord Ganthor


The third place winner is: A Star Is Born - Dollygirl
The second place winner is: Beach Ball - Oom Fooyat


And the first place winner is…..Hot Lead At Sunrise - Lord Ganthor


So, there you have it. Congratulations to all the winners, and I hope to see all of you here again next year for the annual “Summer Fun and Pinups.”

That is the reason to get UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) units for sensitive electronics.

And congrats to the winners.

Remember the batteries in consumer level units only last 2 - 2.5 years and then the UPS itself becomes a threat to your electronics.  One should budget $35-50 US every 2 years / UPS system or just purchase a professional unit to start with.  If one is buying a house, one should look into seeing if getting a power conditioner unit installed by the seller is an option for sale.  This can cushion the cost over the life of the mortgage and protect all of your electronic assets in the house.

now that all has been said, I just want to point out to those that didn’t win, some of the renders were a little lacking this month, not a lot of effort put into them with lighting and placements. Many were off a bit on the theme as well. PLEASE do not take my comments offensively, this is constructive criticism everyone, not meant to offend. The renders were good, but seem thrown together, not all of them, just some. I chock it up to being new to the contests and I too suffered my first renders, You should see my first one I entered with compared to now.

So please do not take offense anyone, and PLEASE don’t stop entering because of my comments, around here we all learn from constructive criticisms and get better.
take care everyone

Thank you for the nod on my render and congratulations to the other winners. Thank you Skipper25 and Music for the prizes. Jeeperz, I thank you for the critique. I for one appriciate it when someone is brave and honest in their assessments of my work and I will be more sensitive to the spirit of the challenge because of it. Being on the otherside of the fence as a host I appriciate your comment. It so helps the host when they don’t have to be the heavy about complying with the rules.
