Firewalker999 in first as it's just one of those chaotic scenes you get every time you play, and the positioning of the wtf makes it perfection! Ganxxter as that's a damn fine shot to the chin with the taxi board, having wtf on there too just makes the picture. And CharmingCharlie in third as of his and GtaHitmanStrikesBack's, his was slightly more perverted lol.

Great photo's all competition folks, although aren't we missing some entries this round?

3: Gangxxter
Motivation: Thales, at first I thought you must have cheated, but that's actually very clever. Nicely done. nemesi5 has a nice sky background -- the weird angle the "wtf" here, right? CharmingCharlie!?? Nicely done! Comic timing to the max'! Firewalker999 -- yep, seen that a thousand times myself. Weirdest thing. Gangxxter's pic is clearly awesome timing. That is just very well done. Gratz, dude. Graven's is an example of how no matter HOW good R* get with their rage engine, it still shows bloopers like that. happy.gif GtaHitmanStrikesBack <sidebar> why consoles couldn't include the ability to click shots onto a usb key, I'll never know; I mean, are sony n MS utterly clueless or just stupid? </> has a similar example, but CC's is clearer. john88z's is another of perfect timing. Just brilliant. But, ultimately, it has to be Hanneswasco's shot: 'cuz, seriously, WTF is with that?!?! Is he jogging in the sky?!

Love y'all's work, guys. It's been fun to read.

3: nemesi5

CharmingCharlie, your photo is bloody brilliant. You can look at it for an hour and still find things you didn't notice earlier. Instead of just taking a picture where Niko crouches in front of another citizen, you added lots of other things. The most brilliant part is the hot dog. Keep in mind that Niko throws the hotdog away in a few moments. Perfect timing! Besides that, it is in multiple ways "WTF". First, of course, what Niko "does". Second the "wtf" on the board. Third, the board about sleeping with my mum. Fourth, it is outstanding quality, so that is also "wtf". Besides the good quality, the good connection to the theme, the many details, and the creativity, does it also include humour. The police car at the background is genius, I don't think they would like to see it. wink.gif And the "sports" at the right hand side, Niko is really doing a sport atm lol. This is in my opinion the best screenshot of the whole competition, so you are first with a clear mile.

Second I chose for Hanneswasco. I don't think it is that much connected to the theme, that is too bad. But it is timed perfectly. It is creative, but doesn't have many details. A beautiful screen, though, that is why it gets the second place.
Third is nemesi5. It is kind of the same motivation as Hanneswasco. It isn't that much connected to the theme, but a beautiful photo. It isn't that creative as the one of Hanneswasco, that is why I put this photo in third place and not in second.

There were really only 3 pictures that actually made me say "WTF" and so those are my finalists.

1: Charming Charlie - Hands down the best WTF moment. 2 other people took similar shots (sneak blowjob lol) but this one is easily the best. Niko has got the hotdog and the blank look on Packie's face actually makes it that much more funny.

2: Thales - This is a great shot for anyone who's played through the game and knows about Bernie. The way they are staring into each others eyes with the bed right behind them is priceless.

3: John88z - Now this was the only other true WTF moment of all the entries. It's totally random and pretty funny since it looks like someone just got rolled down the street in a trashcan and is bailing out. Good capture.

Even though this contest was pretty much over after round 2, it was great to see what everyone came up with. In my opinion, there should be another contest in which anything goes. People should be allowed to use their mods and whatever other skills they have to take the most wild/funny/weird screenshots they can.

john88z's is slapstick gold, though not quite as WTF as CC's - can't beat a good sausage joke. But I love how thales has used Niko's generic (otherwise boring) stone-faced expression as the perfect 'WTF' response to Will Ferrell dressed as an aerobics instructor stuck in a time warp.

1:Charming Charlie.
Motivation This first wins one hands down for me, just pure comic genius. Thales100's picture is also a pretty good WTF moment, as I had never got Bernie into bed during the storyline, and the last one was a toss up between them all really.

CC provides the best WTF experience. Good idea, great timing, fitting location and funny description
Hanneswasco lets Niko audience for ChinaTown wars ?, very "WTF".
John88z's screen really makes you wonder; what happened?

1. John88z
2. Graven
3. Hydro_PT

I've voted for those three pics because they really made me say "WTF!?" when I opened them for the first time.
John88z: Perfect timing and WTF^^
Graven: Well, that's what I call a classic WTF moment biggrin.gif
Hydro_PT: The third one was the hardest because there was no other picture which truly made me say "WTF". Many are very funny, others are impressive, but there is no "WTF"-type of screenshot left. I think Hydro_PT's screenshot comes closest to a "WTF"-screenshot IMHO.

Well looks like I am gonna be the last to vote so here goes :-

1. John88z
2. GtaHitmanStrikesBack
3. Hanneswasco

Well firstly I liked John88z's it has great comical value and I can't imagine it was easy getting Niko in that damn bin. Next in 2nd place is GtaHitmanStrikesBack, clearly having the same idea I had and he showed a lot of patience doing that with a camera. Finally Hanneswasco with Niko doing an 80's disco move whilst travelling at 80mph towards the earth, I just love it.

All in all everyone did great screen shots though, it was a great contest and I know I had a lot of fun.
