Dissapointed, not just because I had no shots selected, but because the majority of the months I basically picked via RNG because all of the options were super meh.

Maybe 2 or 3 shots from the whole lot I felt were worthy of voting for at all.

good job to those shotters! Next year step it up guys, if I'm gonna lose at least show me something unique or artistic.

Voting forms are up, there's a link on twitter: https://twitter.com/BDO_News

EDIT: And I'm not in. I gotta say I'm kinda disappointed. I put lots of effort into this and I saw lots of rather subpar/mediocre screenshots in there. And also missed some other people's submissions from this thread that really really deserved to be in there. Wondering if these were picked randomly or by hand...?

This :c I'm dissapointed too..

I somehow managed to get in (with this http://i.imgur.com/GLXaZEk.png in july) but I got same feel like You guys! I was hoping to see top tier screenies in that selection.

Sry if I'm going into full salty mode here, but lots of these are really boring, just the same old "character staring at camera while standing on the side with pretty, but not overly amazing view next to them" or "character looking into sunset" or just plain "character leaning/sitting somewhere without anything remarkable in the frame" - I'm sorry, but where's that amazign shot of a person diving right next to a giant manta ray? People that actually show some action, more like the great deer shot that was already mentioned and luckily made it in?

I actually voted for this one. :x

I honestly thought Risa's diving picture would be in.. :c

OMG, they chose my deer screen! I'm really happy for that. They also chose that halloween screen with the two mask that I quite liked, but I agree with you, there are too many similar shots and I find some missing from this thread. I prefer to think there was something wrong with the forms, maybe, because they were great pictures :_(

A shame none of my pictures got in. Better luck next time I guess. I really liked the pink fairy screenshot.

I'm so so sad for my manta ray picture. It's already super hard to have a nice shot next to it, and then not blurry and high quality. Super difficult to do.

That's one of the screenshots I voted for actually!

I'm lucky one of my screenshots got nominated. Interesting to see so many screenshots in the form which I didn't recognize from the thread; there must have been a lot of people submitting screenshots. And a shame there's some people in this thread who posted great screenshots, but weren't selected.

I shared it in the post here: http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/118873-picture-the-seasons-calendar-event/&do=findComment&comment=1665959 :)

My computer is not the best one, so I was a little bit worried. 

Voting was funny, because the moment I saw those pictures that I already liked from here, I didn't even have to think about it!!!! Now I regret not taking screenshots of the selected while voting, so I could remember all of them.

oh thank you! i am a bit surprised that one got in but yeah i think their selection process was quite flawed, seeing as there are a lot of similar looking screenshots in some months, and some months seem to contain screenshots that are kind of.. completely irrelevant to the season? eh..

Oh yes! Not one single easter picture!

Next time, they should ask for "cool or epic looking" screenshots instead :-)

Most of my Christmas images were horrible due to the fact that I never got the snow timed perfectly xD

Anyway here is all of my submissions in one post:

And yeah, this. I knew I wasn't gonna win anything in that beauty contest before release where they said from the get go that it would be random selection (with the winners ending up accordingly mediocre chars). But I had hopes for this one cause I thought they'd actually put effort into it and pick the more unique things with better picture composition and proper work with blur and filters. There are some good ones in there, no doubt, but some choices are pretty confusing to me.

I can't believe some of those are supposed to legitimately be better than mine or my favorites from this thread that didn't make it.
