According to the poll it looks like 1 person agrees with you. Wait, that's probably your vote.

Fwiw, you're handier with your camera than I am with mine. Cool pics, I'm trying to get better with mine.

Are you using filters/editing software of any kind?

Breitling, you have a nice jeep and do some great post production work, the EXIF data was stripped so I could not see what equipment you use. They appear to be HDR photos that blended multiple exposures, nice touch. The crowd here likes action shots. Take that bad boy out on some trails and post those shots.

I'd love to have magazine cover worthy shots of me off-roading but that's hard to do for a few reasons:
I'm driving so I'm not take the photos but getting photos from someone else.
The groups I wheel with would rather drive than stop for photo shoots.
I'm off-roading so I'm not taking my 5D and L series glass on the trail, typically a cell phone or cheap point and shoot.

I think everyone put it perfectly. **** pictures a good build with a good story is what im after. Its hard to get good action shots on the trail unless you have a camera guy, and even our camera guy rarely wants to get out when the trail gets any bit fun. Unually only when hes spotting or I ask for a quick pic

I do think that a good composed shot would make a difference, only when the jeeps are more or less equally build. Guess most people here have instagrams and without having to learn **** about photography we can try out filters and use the coolest looking shot; however, when this is about jeeps and off roading, using filters seems fake/ unreal whatever u wanna call it. The beauty of that moment is sacred and should remain raw and only feels right when it is natural. This is just my opinion

Ps : I also think Jeep in mud looks sexy

Nothing to do with HDR, but even if it is how is it changing anything? In my opinion shot "Jeep the month" should have good or excellent look. Shot itself not just Jeep. Getting monster tires and dip them into mud should not be main criteria here I possibly like only one shot from all set, besides mine made by cosmicbluejk, so my vote for him.

Slow down don't get all hurt. I wasn't knocking you, your jeep or the photos. I said I liked the HDR effect, even if you didn't use multiple exposures it's still has high dynamic range. Nobody said the most built or dirtiest jeep wins, look at last month's contest, Brandon won and he did not have the most built or dirtiest jeep. He did have a great action shot with wheel in the air, good exposure, focus, rule of thirds etc.
