Update Info: Not exactly new content, again... it seems I won the PMC side of the Tournament this time (making me the first to win both sides ), and I figured I'd edit each of my entries. It definitely is a different type of challenge to work without editing, and I appreciated it forcing me to be more considerate of the shot before I brought it over to the PC. But I can't leave editing, since it's a natural thing for me, whether with GT images or my real camera! So this is a thank you to all who voted for me; I hope your holiday season was great, and here's to a strong start to 2013 ! Enjoy!
jus1029 - Thanks buddy, glad you enjoyed it, see you in a week!
zzz_pt - I've been feeling it more since GTPedia came out, and I've been reminded of all the fun the old games were. Now that that's out of the way though, I've got a bunch of new games to keep me occupied...
BkS - Thanks mate 👍
GT-R - It's a bit scary, isn't it? I went to visit my parents over the holiday and found my old ancient DexDrive there. $60 for a device that came with two 3.5in floppies to install the entire software, just for the ability to put PS1 game saves on a PC, which were somewhere well under 100kb each. All of my old saves are on a burned CD too! Graphics aren't the only thing that have moved forwards in leaps and bounds, I suppose. Have a good holiday, sir
Dark - It's entirely possible, though really, Daan has me beat with his awesome retrospective videos 👍
GPR - Thanks! I took Photomode for granted; didn't realize how hard it'd be to get decent shots in GT1 with nothing past replay angles! Hope Santa was good to you!
xMARKITOx - I won't rule out the possibility...
ZEROX - Too kind, buddy. A belated Merry Christmas, hope it was good for you
20832 - Glad I could help, sir 'Ring! When will we be seeing you returning?!
TVR - Thanks, I really didn't want to pass that shot up, even without a GT1 companion. Glad to see still around these parts
Congratulations on your second (well-deserved and almost foreseeable) win, Kyle.
The post-editing turned stunning pictures into... well, perfect ones. I especially like the way you've desaturated the 4th picture and added the noise - this gives the picture its final touch (I agree that leaving pictures unedited feels somewhat strange).
Fun fact: You've had one GT-R in one of your pictures from the last tournament and two GT-Rs (click and click) showed up this time around.
I hope you had a good time thus far, too. (I'll drink a Red Bull to you)
