Bet you thought we forgot about you, didn’t you? Your humble photo contest editor was caught slacking this month; his only excuse is that the weather was really nice and he was out motoring!

This is the third installment of the MotoringFile Photo Contest, for April 2007. April was a pretty quiet month as far as the [MotoringFile Flickr group]( went, with a shade under 60 photos posted. As always, however, there were still enough excellent pics posted that choosing a handful to feature on the site wasn’t easy.

Onward to this month’s winners!

First Place

Ah, Monaco. An itty bitty Mediterranean nation with some serious F1 cred. Our Italian friend Luca Boscariol brings us this evocative shot of a MINI One D Park Lane. Luca, [drop us a line]( and we’ll get your [MotoringBadges grille badge]( on its way to you!

Runners Up
Miami MINI Graffiti.

At first glance, this month’s first runner up from James Good looks like some nifty work with Photoshop; if we’re wrong, please don’t ruin it for us, ok?

Ernesto Vumbles (or “Steve” as his friends like to call him) gives us a little taste of [MINI USA’s Motorby program]( for our second runner up. You really need to click through for a larger version of this shot to take in all the detail.
