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!
