3:Oldage
Motivation: thales pic really in good quality, the background is suitable with the action with some lighting from the billboards. Kim120 has funny moments and the timing to capture this is perfect. As for Oldage I choose it's different from the others.

Damn, I completely forgot about voting for the 'Freestyle' round.
Nevertheless, here are my votes for the 2nd round.

1: CharmingCharlie
2: thales100
3: kim120
Motivation
Charlie does another great pic in favour of dirty humour. This pic is more appropriate for the theme than the first round one, so this gets my top vote.

thales100 once again shows off his GTAIV with high graphical settings biggrin.gif . While it isn't, IMO, the best representation of 'Citizens of Liberty City' (maybe a few pedestrians in the background, it would've been perfect for me), Liberty City itself and Packie look great and the prescence of background vehicles are enough to warrant my vote.

kim120's pic is hilarious - that look on his face is gold! Great way of showing how peds are treated in LC.

Thanks for your vote colgate.gif , but all the main characters should be also considered citizens, not only peds, according to Dutchy3010 rules for this round 2 :

Remember that the characters like Niko and Roman are also citizens.

Dudes, could you please upload the pictures to somewhere else other then imageshack?

Like tinypic maybe, imageshack is VERY ANNOYING. mad.gif


1. thales100
2. Firewalker999
3. CharmingCharlie

Well, they are the only ones that really showed citizens of LC. SOme showed cars, and some other pics just werent as HQ as these. I love thales' pics because of HQ and level of detail. Firewalker got my vote due to the nice effect of bloody car, and charming charlie because of a nice pic quality and a good caption.

Yah, I know, but a bit more "life" would've appealed more to me, like a potential target or he could be part of a crowd, IDK.

The way you expressed your picture is just fine; I'm just a fussy perfectionist. colgate.gif
Tell u what, I'll edit my post to make it my 2nd vote - it does seem better than kim120's one (sorry kim smile.gif ), after some thought. Packie looks real badass in that pic - very mischievious.

Motivation: Thales's pic has got like that action feel, and I like Star Junction. Oldage's pic is just f*ckin' cool. CharmingCharlie's pic is great, but it's on 3rd because of the stupid ass capitation-line-thing below the pic.

Well, since you are from Belgium, I can translate it for you: "milieu". wink.gif

Be creative, everything that has something to deal with "Environment", is good. Doesn't mind which connection, though. You could screen a flower, for example. Or you could screen smog, because that is bad for the environment. Etc. wink.gif

1: Hanneswasco
2: Kimr120
3: CharmingCharlie
Motivation: This was obviously a tougher theme, 'cuz, while there are some great shots amongst these, such as Firewalker's excellent messed-up car, they're not actually capturing the people theme. So, keeping that in mind, I reckon ganxxter's find is an awesome shot of a cop telling the invisible men that he caught a criminal who was "thiiiis wide". It was a close fought almost-third place for me. It's just a great shot of that model of cop, even if it is its most common expression. Love it. hanneswasco's is just an awesome expression -- I'm assuming of Niko falling from an exploding chopper -- with great colour. Likewise, hydro_pt's shot is a classic shot of Packie? flying through the air for absolutely no good reason! thales100's Packie captures the character's expression, and the background is well-placed. I love charmingcharlie's shot, too, but mostly cuz I keep wanting to see a caption beneath it of " Dis is my balls. You cannot touch deez balls. Day are my balls. ". That is a classic find, CC! And kimr's shot is just perfection of timing and the NPC's expression. In the end, I reckon you cannot go past hanneswasco's for the facial expression, kimr's for classic timing and expression, and The Charming One's for sterling timing and set-up. But, seriously, gratz to all. There are some great shots amongst these.
And, again, kudoz for the competition: this is really stirring the pot and bringing up some great shots from peoples' archives. Mega-gratz!

@ aragond: my screen is taken when Niko falls off the Rotterdam Tower. He had just blown up a helicopter, and stood a little bit to close to it.
