    And the Winners Are…

    Bird’s Eye View

    Far and away, this category had the best entries, which means stiff competition! There basically wasn’t a single entry that wasn’t stunning, but each judge had to pick their two favourites. However, even with three judges, we had to call in a fourth for the tiebreaker!

    Winner: Geneva
    Second Place: Kara
    Runners Up: Eric, Scrappy

    Skillful

    You guys really pulled out all the stops for this one. The entries were unique, amusing, and well-shot. Sadly, not everyone could win.

    Winner: Fexmeif
    Second Place: Shanna
    Runners Up: Michael, Jason

    Pretty in Pink

    This one was the one I was the most excited for. And in some ways, it was the most challenging (there’s not a whole lot of pink places in GW2). Despite that, you guys did a great job on all the entries!

    Winner: Fexmeif
    Second Place: Michael
    Runners Up: Jason

    It was decided by majority vote that we would allow the same person to win two categories. However, this (and the rest of the rules etc) are subject to change if they feel unbalanced in any way.

    In the meantime, congratulations to the winners! Prizes will be sent out ingame, laurels will be awarded, and the gallery will reflect your entries soon!

    Original Post Below

    It’s time to show off your photography skills in order to win fabulous prizes and honors!

    The Categories:

    • Bird’s Eye: Find the highest point you can climb to and take a shot of the landscape below! This category should be taken in first-person mode and should not feature any characters.
    • Skillful: Take a screenshot of your character or your friends using a skill – of any kind. Mesmer Mantra, Warrior Greatsword, Engi Grenades – just make it look cool!
    • Pretty in Pink: Take the pinkest possible screenshot. Photoshop/Graphical enhancements disallowed for this category.

    The Prizes:

    • First place winner in each category will get 5g and their photos featured in the guild Screenshot Gallery.
    • Second place winner in each category will get 5g.
    • Runners up will receive 1g each.
    • All participants will receive forum laurels.

    The rules:

    • You may submit 1 screenshot per category to win.
    • Graphical enhancements such as SweetFX/GemFX/Reshade are allowed, as is gentle enhancement in photoshop. However, the screenshot may not be cropped, and excessive alterations will disqualify you (you will be warned of this and given the chance to resubmit your entry).
    • The contest will run until the end of August. Winners will be announced September 1st.

    Tips:

    • Hit CTRL+SHIFT+H to hide the UI when taking a screenshot.
    • Hit F11 and use the camera settings to align your screenshot optimally.

    Here’s my entry, although I had a hard time picking one. I went for what I thought was the highest. This is in Silverwastes Cavern, well above the cloud layer, with the sand falling in the top right corner and the very bottom of the canyon shown toward left of middle.

    Here are the other shots I was considering:

    Alright so I’ll just enter for the pretty in pink and the skillfull category because I have no skill in actual climbing xD My screenshots are better enjoyed if you read the captions…

    First one, for the skillfull category:

    “This was a bad ideeeeeeaaaaaa….. “*thump*

    Second one, for pretty in pink
    “I’m an ice climber, climbing ice!”
    I'm an ice climber, climbing ice

    My entries are more for the fun of taking part than trying to win (though I did put some time and thought into them) so I hope you simply enjoy them :D

    Alrighty, I got a few here.

    For the Skill contest, Eric was doing a skill and got frozen in mid skill with the stone thingy from the Box of Fun. We pulled a card from Final Fantasy 7 :D

    For the Pretty in Pink, I have my pretty pink Mesmer in front of lots of pretty pink flowers, of course she is also wearing her pink quaggan backpack, however, when I did my emote, it disappeared.

    For the top of the world one, I found a good shot from the top of Mount Melstrom. There is a view of a tree that I thought was super awesome and a camp at the foot of it, the smoke and ash hazing the view.
