Post subject: Hail the Victorious September '07 Screenshot Winners!

Steamin' at full speed like a Juggernaut in pursuit of... somethin', September has come and gone in a blaze of glory and talent as we've been blessed with some truly magnificent screenshots that demonstrate the formidable power and skill of Com-Central's heralded entrants!

Now I said last month, after my long-winded introduction, that I'd let a very specific person write the intro for this month instead. However, in a truly ironic twist of fate, I can't properly ask that person to do so because he'd be annoucing his own victory. So, we'll go with his own very impressive quote from that previous thread, and which I think you'll agree fits the winning shot for September 2007 quite perfectly!

And what better words could apply to the September 2007 winning shot, with a top score of 4.778 (total points 43 out of 9) votes...

"Kraut is smoking now." by siskens

Winning in the tradition of an ancient tragedy...the warrior is applauded, the audience is jubilant, the inevitable end of the usurper is at hand. The villain stands to lose due to his greed and cruelty. His victims are to be remembered forever after...a thousand years of victory lay ahead! In a last effort he sees his enemy is in smoke and going down.
"Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall."

Congrats to "Siskens" (his BEST action shot EVER), "Misfire" (something tells me that guy's gonna' get a lot of moving traffic violations), "1Bullet "(Built a model of Shangri-La once, real sentimental about that one), "Fled" (who cannot seem to keep his hands off German planes, what is it with that guy?), and "Freebird" (well, I've been known to enter a B-24 in the screenshot contest myself, what's not to like? Mr. Green ).

Nice work, all!

A picture of an action: frozen and still; sounds of roaring engins and rattling guns obliterated. The flying has stopped and we look back into a kind of history that has not fallen onto oblivion. A time of which I have the blurred memories of harsh sounds, strange people and starred vehicles in what once was a street. Now it is as if virtuality has caught up with reality. Now we soar the new skies, enjy and see what we did not ever see before - with friends we take off into new adventures, compete and have fun. Winning is part of te game, though, sharing the pleasures with so many other people is the most wonderful sensation! Basking in the warmth of victory, I think we all are winners. Let's applaud this getting-together and support those who help us.

(OK, wipe your tears and let's get back to normal again) Wink

Y'all really make this effort a whole heck of a lotta fun to see, and help manage, and it's no exaggeration that the screenies are getting even more fun, more exciting, and certainly are some GREAT work that you should all be very proud of. It's a real pleasure to be able to "frame" some of them here.

Speaking of "framed" I think that this month's winner and quote shoudl be framed together...it's that perfect. Also as siskens mentioned in a PM, more than perfect considering that "vanquished" DO335 that came so close to being last month's winner is now going down in flames himself. Talk about life imitating art.....

AND from what I've seen already, there is some REALLY great stuff coming up so hang on to your hats! The theme of the month for November seems to be quite a hit and the queue is filled up through November 14 at this point, (yes, over a month of screenies in advance now!!!) so I couldn't be happier and I hope y'all are too!
