    This is good. Glad they are getting delivered in a timely manner. I suspect we'll start hearing from the left coast folks real soon too.

    I received mine yesterday. Now the hard part is deciding where to hang it come January; home or work? :D

    And thank you again for including my photos. It's an honor to have been chosen.

    Mine came today! Three days ain't bad for our beleaguered USPS. And that includes forwarding from my former address! Incidentally, it is easy to criticize the PO when comparing it to instant electronics, but the tentacles it has to distribute to every mail address in the 50 states, six out of every seven days, is truly impressive. As are my Roadster and wife's Countryman. Thanks for the excellent calendar Nathan.

    Thanks Nathan, received mine (3) today. And having worked for the PO for 18 years they do a good job getting the mail out. Its management that's the problem.

    Upload photo(s) during the year till October to the Calendar Gallery. Link goes to new 2015 Calendar Gallery

    For a main image for a month the file needs to be rather large, most of the ones selected are in the range of 3500x2000 or so. Smart phone pictures are not dense enough pixel wise to be displayed in print at 8.5x11. However, we do make use of those smaller images to fill and in the collage found in the front of the calender.

    I go through all the ones that are of a proper size and select 18-20 that I like. I'll send to then to the person that puts the calender together with notes about any post processing I think they may need. If there is one I want to use for a specific month I'll convey that as well. I then let her select the ones she feels will work best. She also picks all of the smaller images and creates the collage. Her car has been someplace in every calendar. We do a few low resolution mock-ups, comments are added, dates are checked and then we print a proof. That is gone over by both of us and I have a few local people look it over as well. Once set we go to print.

    I do try and strike a balance between the different models wen selecting the main images.
