    Hi all,

    Plan is for a A3 Landscape 2014 calendar which requires 13 awesome images to create it. Last year I chose all 13 as it was quicker, and it made sure we hit the early December deadlines for ordering (so you got them in time for the new year!).

    If you have a favourite picture that you would like to suggest then please let me know through this thread!
    I'll be emailing certain people for certain images I feel should be included. Please use either the "agree" or "like" buttons if you like what someone else has posted here!

    Note that for quality of printing purposes the original image needs to be as high a resolution as possible. The template I will be using requires 4457 x 2273 pixel original unedited images!

    Cheers, Gary

    Thanks @miller1098. Had a few of those in mind already, but you've given me a couple I've added to the 'seek permission' list.

    In fact your list is almost a worthy calendar in it's own right ;)

    It didn't even even occur to me to consider one of my own... :facepalm:

    So many great pictures, but you could do with some more Z4's in there.

    These are great as well

    The last one makes me laugh every time... and it's got a Z4 in it!

    :)

    Cheers @Walrus, :happy:

    I'm just created a mood wall on my PC with a load of the pictures in this thread (inluding some of yours). It's bloody hard work trying to choose only 13, from the hundreds which get submitted to the site every year!

    I'll start messaging people for hi-res copies and permission later on today/tomorrow.

    Quick update.

    12 of the 13 images are now chosen :snaphappy: so thanks to those who have responded so far. Everyone who has emailed in has been good enough to supply a high enough resolution image. Final image request sent out today, and one pending permission to use.

    It's hard striking a balance between the different Z models, and choosing from the vast pool of pictures available :nailbiting:

    How about making the thirteenth lucky by choosing an unusual colour, our Mora Red Comp pic, we love it, the reflections are great and the sunshine is terrific.

    Sorry, I forgot to mention I made the 13th selection last week! I'm a bit behind with things at the moment... :facepalm:

    Today's sneaky peak is "Miss May" as taken by @reddyzeddygo :snaphappy:

    I seriously hope there will not be a lack of sheep. It will be what I remember 2013 for!

    Sooo funny!

    Coming soon, very soon! Just been having to wrangle with the new post office parcel sizes. The mailers I have ordered are just slightly larger than the new small parcel size. With a bit of work, I can make the mailers the correct size, which halves the postage costs.

    Now I know the parcel sizes and weights I can add these to the store and start taking orders in the next couple of days!

    For now, here is Miss March to lust over... :woot:

    No sheep.
