Twinned with AOKH

Could Elrich please post the new theme?

The new theme is: Abyss, and entries can be submitted before the 15th of March (0:00am Forum Time). Voting will take place during the two days after that, starting on the 15th.
Results will be announced on the 17th.

What is this thread about?
The Continuous Screenshot Competition is stolen from AoKH, where it has been active and used for a very long time. It is to promote screenshots, and also to just have fun looking at and making the scenery. Each time there will be a theme in which the screenshot should fit, the winner of last theme is allowed to pick the new one. If a winner wins for the second time in a row, the number 2 is allowed to pick the theme. This thread is it's fourth installment, and you might be wondering why we need a new thread. This is because of thread corruption: The more posts a thread gets (over 2500), the more likely it is to corrupt, and I think it would be a big waste if we lost all the links to screenshots from the previous threads.

The rules
  • Until further notice, previous categories may be used.
  • You may only enter one screenshot per category.
  • The previous winner can compete in the competition he set the theme for, this is a form of trust, so be honest.
  • Please do not suggest themes for the winner.
  • No altering of screenshots, except for adding text, borders and logos.
  • Modding is allowed.
  • Both AoM and AoM: TT screenshots can be used.
  • You are not allowed to make screenshots from maps created before the competition, but you can use the map for something else after taking the screenshot.
  • No flaming, but constructive comments are allowed.
  • Everyone is allowed to vote one time per competition for one screenshot.
  • The winner of the last round may pick the theme for the new one, he can also add an extra restriction.
  • If same person wins in twice in a row (or more times), the runner-up may pick the new theme.
  • You cannot vote for your own screenshot.

Time between the competitions
We have one week for the competition followed by 2 days to vote, after that the winner can post the new theme and we can start again.

Tips
You can host shots at:
You can make in-game screenshots with the following methods:
  1. Press the Print Screen button on your keyboard.
  2. Paste your shot into a program like Paint.
Or take a look at Mephiles' guide on how to take a screenshot.

Giving the top a try, I think it looks nice. But if people hate it then we can easily go back to the old top.

Interesting. I was thinking of having Shades marching across the Elysian fields to the fields of punishment.

I was thinking something that would be nice would be if the theme was included in the title, so you update it every time it changes

GP. Yeeb needs more work, that lazy bastard.

The position of the camera can affect a screenshot just as much as the eye candy.

Well I think what gives it the certain something that makes you feel the pic are the sharp-edged rocky summits in the background with the clouds around them.

I ask that anyone who reads this thread make a screenshot for this entry!! Then this will be a good one!! You can't let yeeb win. His looks pretty nice.

I guarantee my entry will be in by the end of the week, don't you worry

On a side note, to beat Yeebie, I'll have to 'squash' him with the screenshot...you'll see what I mean when I post

Haha, thanks guys . I actually have won the CSC before. The theme was Women.
Herr Y.!
Wish my surname was brush or dryer. When I go to Germany they'd call me Herr Brush .

Azur, I like your theme-title idea and will implement it.

In honour of this, the fourth great and bountiful CSC. I am proud to unveil the first place entries album in the gallery!

Good angle, Nitro. It really adds to the action of the shot.

Kai, that's a wonderful shot. Very nice building and terrain eyecandy. The colors really enrich the shot but because of the lighter terrains, are not overpowering either..

Was going to call it The March of Poseidon
But I think it's best we call it.
The Wrath of Poseidon.

OH and in case you wanted to see a lighter version of it.

@Vespacianus: nice but you must learn about cinematic models (animations control)

@Hail: you're always going out of your way to mispell things aren't you? Glad to see you participate.

@SOV: I'm going to have to check it out on my monitor at home. At work, it's way too dark (even the lighter one).
