Wow, best one so far. 

The ones in this thread are only about half the entries, actually. I get a lot of them via email. As per the previous comment, you can see them all here. That one will be added in the updated entries tonight. :)

I'm seeing people post multiple pictures under one category, is that allowed? Your original post doesn't specify.

Edit: Nevermind I see where it says it now. Guess I overlooked it, lol.

No it isn't. I believe she asked someone somewhere to narrow it down to 1 per category. :P

To be honest, with the number of times I've gotten the question / seen multiple entries, I probably should move that rule up or something. It's been there from the beginning, just last in the list, iirc.

Or I could just plaster it in all red somewhere. (just kidding)

Edit: Guess it's not last, but it can be skimmed over easily enough, I suppose.

Edit 2: Moved it up near the top of the rules under hiding the UI. Hopefully that clears up some questions. I know the post is long, and I apologize!

I don't normally enter competitions, mostly because like in-game, my real world luck is savagely poor. But this seems really interesting, so I'm happy to provide my paltry entries to this great idea!

I'm known by lots of names, but Everheart is my family name, and name here, so best to go by that one. Lots of really great screenshots already! And yes, I would be totally interested in postcards!

Well, this one isn't RNG, so no worries there. The judges are all anonymously given the images to rate - first on a 1-10 scale, then a round two (after an elimination to 10 images each) by preference, and the final is a summation of the scores. Perhaps it's a bit tedious, but it's our "tied and true" method to make sure it's fair for everyone who participates. We know everyone works hard to put their shots together, so they deserve the best shot possible, regardless of any personal biases anyone might have.

...And there's the explanation you didn't even ask for! :P

Oh man, which farm is that @Solanum?

Can't remember for sure, it was taken so long ago! Apparently in CBT1 even! 

My guess would have been one of the farms around Calpheon but I asked the missus and she said Costa farm... and she's usually right so let's go with that! Would also make more sense since I was busy doing little bit of everything so I'm not sure if I even got to Calpheon in them betas!

That seems like a fair guess. There is a building just like that near where the Owner/Node Manager is, but I thought it was a bit farther away from the main area. But hey, might just be perspective.

Awesome that you were taking awesome shots even then, though. :D

That was probably when I took most of my screenshots! Or at least a big big bunch :) Everything was new and fancy and shiny and looked so great! Not that it doesn't even now but still, you know how it goes when you try something new the first time :D Also did so much exploring in the betas.. When the game launched there were so many other things to do that exploring had to wait a bit!

Definitely get that feeling, though I think my fingers might be a little trigger happy with the print screen button. That said, every time there's a new area, I can't help it. Look at this image from the pirate islands. I found an alcove and was utterly delighted.

(Yes I'm probably 10 on the inside.)

Heh, nice! 

I had loads of fun exploring the islands too, didn't make it to the pirate islands yet though as I've been swamped with work recently so no exploring for me...

Also, personally liked the Longleaf Tree Sentry Post quite a bit !

Not quite on topic I'm afraid but had to add few more screenshots of my own but I hide them in spoilers so I don't mix them up with people's entries!

That's totally okay. I love seeing screens. I absolutely loved the area in the trees near Sentry Post. (That said, it took me forever to realize there was an elevator that went up...) One of my favorite locations in the game, though!
