It seems like a quite a few of our members have a interest in photography and take really nice pics
Should we include a photography section in off topic where our photographers can upload pics non syncro related ?
I know Stuart and Lindy took some really nice pics in kruger and im sure other also have some awesome pics to share

if we get more than 5 Yes votes then ill make the section

2.6i Syncro Doka 1984
2.5i SSA PlayBus Syncro 1989
2.5i Factory 5 Cylinder Syncro 1991
2.0i Cox Camper Syncro 1989
2.0i Big Window Syncro 1992
2.6i 2WD Doka 1986
1.9TDI Golf Syncro 1991

Nice suggestion Dean. Although this is not totally Syncro vehicle related, I think it will be nice. Some members might disagree on the principle of to much diversion of the site? Lets hear your votes guys and then also maybe suggestions of other hobbies the guys are interested in.

I Think so, but with the pre-visor that they are low res pics, and that they are not used for financial gain by anyone. there are a few professional photographers that use this to make a living so we don't want to hurt their incomes.

btw
what happened to the gallery that we were going to get on the forum.

While our primary focus is syncro, so long we have proper sections to keep other interests separate I don't see a problem, we are a South African community so don't see any harm making the overseas members jealous with awesome pictures from our country

I'll leave the poll for a few days then decide what to do

2.6i Syncro Doka 1984
2.5i SSA PlayBus Syncro 1989
2.5i Factory 5 Cylinder Syncro 1991
2.0i Cox Camper Syncro 1989
2.0i Big Window Syncro 1992
2.6i 2WD Doka 1986
1.9TDI Golf Syncro 1991

We need to bug the admin about the gallery, he told me the other day he has something for us... Hope it comes up soon

I would make a rule for the gallery section that all pics are low res so they cannot be stollen or printed, but obviously don't upload anything you don't want anyone else to have

2.6i Syncro Doka 1984
2.5i SSA PlayBus Syncro 1989
2.5i Factory 5 Cylinder Syncro 1991
2.0i Cox Camper Syncro 1989
2.0i Big Window Syncro 1992
2.6i 2WD Doka 1986
1.9TDI Golf Syncro 1991

Re: Photography Section
also gives the overseas guys a place to make us jealous about their counties as well. just nice to see what everyone sees when they are out in the wild etc

Re: Photography Section
Good idea Dean.

Now I must just get the BosBus to stop marking it's territory and modify my door mount tripod to take my long lens, and will post some if all are in agreement.

Re: Photography Section
I think it's a good idea. Especially if it's travel related, landscapes etc. And by the way, if someone happens to be able to make some money out of it, good luck to them. It certainly won't worry me.

Re: Photography Section
Hi Ian

what we mean is some one using your pics to make money that should be for your benefit only.
