It's such a shame these won despite all the good images that were submitted.

Congrats to eradicator84, the only artist who won.
You are kinda like the Kanye West of STO awards, right?

Nah, the winner's are just arbitrarily chosen. I don't think there were much of any criteria used beyond the picture size.

I can get behind the winning shot, because it really is kinda cool. Congrats.
Would have thought mine was good enough for a runner up position, but of course I am biased as anyone who entered the contest.

In your opinion, in my opinion all these make great wallpapers.

Well art is in the eye of the beholder I guess but...I still find it hard to believe I didn't make it to the finalists given the exceptional imagery of my shot unless it was on account to some technicallity.

Thank ya'll so much for the kind comments, it was pretty shocking to me that my image won when I read it @_@

There were a bunch of other images I thought would have done just as well, but I have to admit I'm glad to see mine win after all the hours spent trying to find a good position in real time with my two friends, who I also thank for helping me out and putting up with me for a good portion of a day (and night, and early morning...>_>) flying around in a bunch of Connies, heh.

As I mentioned in the "New Wallpaper Available" topic, I thank those at Cryptic/PWE for the game, for letting me play with gorgeous ships like the Connie (tier 5, please? >_>), and for having this contest! Would love to see this happen more to see what comes out of it =)

Demorecord is part of the game, no editting happened beyond moving the camera around, and was happy to find the /renderscale command worked since I'm a slightly smaller resolution at 1920x1080. I did mention in the submission topic how and what I did, and used no outside programs or tools to edit the image.

Demorecord's really the only way to get the kind of dynamic camera angles for shots like this when you're trying to get more than one subject in an image. I could have stuck with the camera focused on myself, the Exeter, but then I'd have had to have zoomed out to get everyone in it, and the shot would be too enlarged covering empty space on the right, top, and bottom of the image uselessly.

Your image, doubleohnine, was one of the ones I personally enjoyed, I do wish they'd fix the camera zoom back to how it was >_< I like how you got it timed with the navigational lights flashing on the hull, I try to do the same with my pics which is how I end up with a screenshot folder packed full of the same image trying to get it timed right >_O
