Good thread, but I really don't give a single f*ck about people's custom cars in the pictures.

Back again...sorry for spamming with images but I'm enjoying playing around with levels and blur in Photoshop, tell me what you guys think.

I love the overpowering effect of the sun in these two...the way they create those silhouettes work well I think. Man this game is gorgeous!

Hell yes MagzGTA! The subway stairs pic is superb - really works well there. I so need to try that out.

Absolutely love the sun blow up - the last pic is pure LA. Reminds me of the movie To Live and Die in LA for some reason. Really nice!

I have a similar pic I took the other day. I'm glad someone else thought the same thing lol

 

Brings back memories of the day I first saw the first trailer.

 

 

 

Yes, absolutely. I saw that shot and knew that this game would be beautiful.  :panic:

This.

I am guilty for one pic of a car (out of like 12 pics posted), but it was more about the light and perspective with the sun and jet. But I 100% agree, selfies and car pics don't fit the subject of the thread

I'm not trying to be mean, but neither of these are on par or even follow the subject. We aren't just taking random shot of stuff then posting. It's about an angle, moment, lighting, location of the photographer vs the subject of the shot. Did you by chance even look at the previous 12 pages of images? When you decided on these 2 shot, did you ask yourself "how do these hold up to all the others?" Like I said this is just constructive criticism, don't take it personally. Just try again and no more personal vehicles please

Got a few. Hope we can post NY in here too; too beautiful out there.
These are my best grabs so far I would say. Following up with a few more trivial ones.

Why does the picture have to be strictly scenic? Honestly that pic looks better with the ATV, it adds more aspects than just a sun and some reflections.

I agree, it's ok to have a vehicle in the shot, but a generic "this is how awesome my car is" shot doesn't fit this topic. I personally believe this shot is pretty good, and keeps with the theme.

 

 

 

This one works

this one works too

This does not

I guess what this comes down to is ask your self "is this picture any where along the same lines as the MAJORITY of others posted in this thread?" If you believe it is, then by all means share it. If you question it at all, it probably doesn't. So maybe go out and get a better shot. Use lighting, perspective, positioning, and composition as a guide. But I guess there are those that see the world as cut and dry, and haven't got a creative bone in their bodies. They just want to participate and honestly can not tell the difference between a picture of light and shadow cutting through a window with gradients and texture, and a dog taking a sh*t...   

 

Here is a pinned thread for posting pics of your car if you so feel inclined:

http://gtaforums.com...our-ridegarage/

Here's another where you can even get some overly biased opinion of said car pic:

http://gtaforums.com...ove-you-thread/

 

We (contributors) have worked pretty hard to not have this thread closed because there are other Snapmatic threads for posting random crap and we had to prove that this is not the same, that we are showcasing the true artistic and creative beauty that GTA5/Online has built into it.

 Yeah I found some flowers on a hill that were raised a little off the ground, so I was able to get a good angle.

 

Couple more.

yeah it is getting kinda serious "up in hurr." But if we don't keep the thread like that it will get locked and redirected to "look at my stupid di*k pic" threads, and we don't want that! So we are not trying to be all that serious about it, just have created a standard we are trying to maintain. All that being said you posted some nice pics, and I'm not going to hate on one that doesn't fit in said standard. Now if those C4's were all going off and the shot was called "Explosions In The Sky" and had some better lighting and such, it could be an awesome shot. But its not... 

Like I said though the rest are really, really nice!

Rules that I feel should be enforced:

 

1. No selfies period. No way no how dun diddly. Most people's characters are ugly anyway.

2. Personal vehicles must be "part of the scene". For those of you that don't catch my drift, that means no "used car" advertisement shots.

I understand totally. I kinda liked the composition, but yeah, not a great shot. Awesome pics guys, keep it up. 96 is not enough!
