@RogerRoger Fantastic, Rog! You’ve put together an excellent framework for this event and I’m excited to see the results! I’ll even submit some of my feeble attempts again this year! 😅

Okay, here I go. Apologies that this looks a bit Green Team, but I have only just got a PS5 and have had a Series X since launch. I used Imageshack for these - my iPhone seems not to like Imgur.

First, a dynamic one ‘Heading Home’ from the buggy, lovely ‘Sable’

Second - and I already posted this on the other screenshot thread - I’d probably call this one dynamic too - ‘3-2-1 - see ya!’ - a BASE jump from the brutal, beautiful world of ‘Grounded’.

@Th3solution Most kind, buddy! Am real glad to see that you're gonna be able to take part; as a former finalist, I'm sure you'll be submitting some stellar shots!

@evildave333 @Clankylad @KAIRU Huge thanks for your early entries, folks! You've set the bar real high this year, which is incredible! Those are some jaw-dropping shots!

Clanky, would you mind giving titles to your pair of pictures, please? Cheers!

@RogerRoger A couple of my favorite shots are slightly spoilery… I’m torn as to whether to submit them. Is there a RogerRoger policy? 😅 I don’t remember seeing anything official in the instructions, so I’ll assume it’s user discretion. I’ll probably err on the side of not sharing them.

@Ralizah I think “Face Off” is the same boss fight that won me the title a few years ago

@Th3solution User discretion advised! I submitted a TLOU2 shot one year near the end of the game and people got very annoyed at something I didn’t even consider a spoiler; I’m hoping not to see too many HFW or GOW:R shots as I know nothing about the games and still have them to play.

@Thrillho It's an intensely moody fight. I was thrilled that I paused it at the exact moment Senua recovered from a stumble and was in a position where she was face-to-face with the thing.

@Th3solution I was this close to writing some spoiler guidance into the Hints & Tips, but I think it's best to leave it up to individuals to decide. If you've taken one incredible shot this year, and it just happens to be from the final boss of a new game, then I'd hate to tell you that it's not welcome. I'd like to think that people are smart enough to see a screenshot competition and, if they're wary of spoilers, tread carefully.

The only reason I'm saying that, however, is because I know that 90% of the regulars around here are kind and thoughtful folk, and you've just proven that by asking. Thank you!

I agree with @Thrillho and would just give a generic "user discretion advised" towards spoilers.

Huge thanks to @CuteBoyMnM @Ralizah and @nessisonett for those awesome submissions! Blimey, first day and I'm already torn between some of these shots! Excellent work!

***

@Clankylad Thanks for going back and adding titles to your shots! Helps a lot!

@RogerRoger I’m not sure if the full size image is being shown through here so I’ve included the link to the ImgBB original by clicking the image just in case!

@nessisonett Appreciate it! They do appear small on the page, but I've been opening everybody's images in a new tab to get a proper look-see anyway, so noticed they were clickable.

You're the runaway winner of the Comedy category thusfar! That shot really made me laugh! Spidey is a great game for funny shots. Reminds me of when I strategically positioned Miles over one of the fragrance ads in Time's Square. Those wall-crawlers get everywhere!

Ahh I'm finally back @RogerRoger!

Have we got a third judge lined up yet & are we allowed to submit shots like before? 😄

There's some terrific shots already that I've got my eyes on!

@Gremio108 Looking forward to seeing what you've got for us, buddy!

***

@HallowMoonshadow Of course yes, please do submit your own shots! That's why we have categories, so that each judge can still take part. Let me know which category you'd like to judge, by the way. I won't randomise it this time, so that you can put your best shots forward.

I haven't heard back from @BearsEatBeets yet, but there's no pressure from me. Looks like they haven't been around for a couple weeks anyway. If they're not available, I have a non-forum friend who's offered to help be a third judge. She's an artist and graphic designer who revels in Photo Modes, so she has an impeccable eye, and her external perspective will quash previous years' suggestions of forum favouritism. Again, she'll only step in if Bears isn't available!

Great to have you back, best of luck, and let me know your preferred category whenever suits!

Oh it's good you have a replacement third judge lined up @RogerRoger just in case Bears doesn't reply! I was gonna feel bad if either of us had to judge two categories!

I don't have many screenshots (especially ones that are particularly good) but the ones I have scrounged up can be put into a single group (Artistic) so I can't judge that.

I don't mind Comedic or Dynamic otherwise. Whichever no one else wants! I'd much prefer you, Bears or your non forum friend get to judge or be able to submit shots to a topic they like!

And yes I did have to continue the trend of one of my photos having a stupidly silly name too because why the hell not? All the other titles of mine are pretentious as flip

Hey @RogerRoger, sorry I'm late getting back but it's not something I can really commit to. Thankfully it sounds like you have someone lined up. Well done on setting it up, it will be interesting to see what people come up with this year.

Just had to say I think your Thru Hell shot from Hellblade is absolutely stunning @Ralizah!


Thank you very much @evildave333! I am quite proud of that shot!

I uhh... Didn't actually get along with Ghost Of Tsushima very well myself! Mainly due to me personally finding the control scheme rather awkward. I seem to be the only person to think that though so I'm sure you'll find it just fine when you get to it 😄

Your "Peregrine Sunset Isle of Skye" is a rather stunning shot I must say!

@HallowMoonshadow Thanks! I'm not always a huge fan of strong filters like this, but I thought the effect turned out rather nice.

By the way, I'm a big fan of "One With The Blade." The dynamic pose and bold color contrasts make it an extremely striking snap.
