1: thales100
2: Firewalker999
3: CharmingCharlie

Motivation: thales100's pic is simply amazing. I mean, it looks like a rainy day/dusk, where everybody is just taking the day off, and I love the widescreen thing he did to it.

Firewalker999's pic is great too, but it needs a little 'something' to make it amazing. IMO it should be an empty street instead. But I don't know anything about photographing so I woulden't know.

CharmingCharlie's pic has got a great angle, but also needs a little 'something' to make it amazing. Also the capitation was kind of a turn off for me.

Good luck to all of you btw smile.gif

1:Graven
2:CharmingCharlie
3:Oldage
Motivation
Oldage in third for finally proving that it's not bears that crap in the woods. CharmingCharlie in second for being so modest, although in all seriousness if that's what they look like I'd seek medical advice! But Graven way out in front for capturing an Irishman in his native environment. I bet he had another one too lol.gif

1:Firewalker999
2:OverTheBelow
3:Oldage
Motivation
Oldage for realism. Those bleeders have to come out. Thank You for feeding the few trees of LC.
OverTheBelow´s has nice warm feeling, would make a nice postcard.
Tough round, many nice pics but Firewalker was clear #1 for me at first glance. Love the atmosphere & the lighting of the lightning.

1: OverTheBelow
2: CharmingCharlie
3: Thales100
Motivation
This was a hard decision; all the photos were great!

1. OverTheBelow's pic is a typical idea, but it really does express Liberty City at its most beautiful IMO. Loved it!
2. Charlie yet again provides us with a hi-larious yet creative pic! The backdrop of buildings against the night sky was also great and it integrated well with the, eh, "structure".
3. Thales100's pic is also amazing - shows Liberty City at a great angle - seems very peaceful. The plane is also a nice addition. Viewing this pic while listening to Edvard Grieg's Morning Mood puts me in a state of tranquillity biggrin.gif .

Honorable mentions: Firewalker999, Oldage, GtaHitmanStrikesBack, nemesi5

Can't wait for the next round! "WTF!" will definitely be interesting!

I'm finally getting some votes. Thanks guys. biggrin.gif

For me:
1. John88z
2. thales100
3. Gangxxter

1. It captures the scene really well, shows that Liberty City is a busy and bustling place.
2. I could see this image on the box set of GTA4 if he didn't scale it horizontally, look at that aeroplane!
3. This picture would look really nice if you bothered to put the graphics up a bit lol.

I play GTA IV everything on maximum (except View Distance is on 31) wink.gif
It's not my fault that GTA IV looks like that. I can't do anything about it since mods, which could improve the graphics, are prohibited.
But thanks for your vote =)

I'll vote later, there are too many good contributions^^

1: Nemesi5 - This is most original of all the shots. There are several city-scapes and several closeups, but this shot is somewhere inbetween. It captures a part of the city that most ignored but which is one of my favorite places; Central Park. Not to mention that the angle and framing are outstanding, from a photographer's point of view. The water fountain in the foreground creates a nice effect that shows off the architecture as well as the nature of the city.

2: Thales100 - What else can you say? Great shot, by far the best of the city-scapes. Not the most original but easily the best all around screen for capturing the intensity of the city contrasted with the tranquility of the water and sunrise.

3: CharmingCharlie - I just like this screen. It's creative, funny, and a very nice shot of Central Park with the recognizable Majestic glowing in the background.

Motivation: thales had an amazing high quality pic, I just love shots like that.

1: nemesi5
2: Thales100
3: john88z
Motivation: Once again, really good effort by a lot of people. Kudos to Hanneswasco and gangxxter for taking the "environment" theme literally. lol.gif (Particularly Hanneswasco's since that looks really good: simple but effective, and htf u got that angle...) Hysterical laughter at CharmingCharlie's find: I've not been able to play the game much with my rig, sure, but I've never seen that before. Awesome! lol.gif icon14.gif cookie.gif Fwiw, my finalists were Firewalker999, Graven, hydro_pt, john88z, nemesi5, OverTheBelow and Thales100 (why is that one so small, T?) for their crispness, colour, effective representation of Liberty City's environment. Choosing the final three, as usual, wasn't easy, but who can go past the sharpness and clarity of nemesi5's shot. Photorealism almost captured. Who can go past Thales's amazing work with this wide-angle composite which captures not only colour, but that plane on the horizon... nice touch, T. But choosing between OverTheBelow's classic sunset colours and john88z's beautiful anc clear shot of the city streets, with all the ads... ahhhh... ummm... not easy, but I think john88z's would have been better served with more cars, but it is an interesting shot of Star Junction. <end-deliberations>


PS; Not a fan of Photobucket's obsession with java. Blimey, are we back in the late 90s again with our fancy-fancy screens full of animations? (Yes, alright, so now they're menus whereever your mouse goes.)

Thanks, well, its 10:2 wide, and it was resized, like all other screenshots, to max 1024, but if youre interested i have much bigger panoramic screenshot versions of similar scenes. wink.gif

Thales makes good use of panoramic shots, and this one's proving it. Gangxxter's pic makes me appreciate the plant life in Liberty City, despite them being just sprites. It's a very artistic shot, really. Firewalker999's shot just exudes "post-apocalyptic."

Right with just over twenty four hours to go I think I better get me vote done, so here is my tactical votes :-

1 - firewalker999
2 - oldage
3 - Hanneswasco

Firewalker999 because I just love the way he caught Liberty City at it's most depressing with the mist. In second place oldage simply because it's Niko having a crap in some bushes biggrin.gif . Finally we have Hanneswasco which is definitely something different and unique, a good show that LC isn't just about big beauty but detailed beauty as well.
