#EXECUTIVES SNAPMATIC WINNERS
Japanese player, Ming_666F brings some distinctly Eastern flavor to this #Executives shot. With the golden dragons of the Oriental Theatre setting the scene, Ming_666F showcases some opulent threads from Executives & Other Criminals. The well-accessorized, golden Heavy Revolver and the stylish Syndicate Leader VIP suit and complementary Bodyguard outfit complete the look.
Beautifully and artfully composed, Joelbor's majestic shot captures the serenity of the moment as a diver takes a dip off the Yacht bow. With the hazy setting of Del Perro Pier and a vast golden sky in the background, this snap is postcard perfect.
And now for a Yacht shot of the more action-packed variety. Sariska showcases the flipside of Yacht ownership, as two pirates approach on a Speedophile as part of the Piracy Prevention VIP and Bodyguard mode. Sariska's opted for a Dutch tilt to lend extra energy to this action shot, with the flag and moon on the right side balancing the composition perfectly.
Showing off the Declasse Mamba, _-Chy-_'s artistic use of a dreamy Portola Drive backdrop - complete with palm fronds and the high-rise skyline - and soft, smoky complimentary lighting emphasizes the classic curves of the car beautifully.
This one looks truly art gallery ready. StrohhutDLuffy and associate are caught frozen in time as they bail out, mid-air from the new Declasse Mamba. Masterful use of focus, filter, composition and color.
#FESTIVESURPRISE2015 SNAPMATIC WINNERS
KiinGSTeR's Gingerbread Man is about to get a little extra frosting in this well-timed snap, comically capitalizing on his 2015 edition grimace.
Titled “Chimney Sweep”, quaid86's Santa makes a hasty getaway after dropping an explosive stocking stuffer down the chimney for one naughty Los Santos resident.
This Snapmatic depicting the wonderment of a girl seeing snow for the first time is just sweet. _-Chy-_ has never won a Snapmatic contest before but today has made lightning strike twice, with another winning shot. _-Chy-_ revealed a bit of the BTS artistry behind this seemingly simple snap: “Director Mode, Editor, and a lot of patience with catching the snowflake in the right position while matching the exact timing of the player action expression.”
On, Blitzen! Another bad Santa is poised to make spirits bright on Christmas night in Los Santos.
EddieLTU's clever “Got Milk?” of Gingerbread Man trying to avoid being served up as Santa’s Christmas Night milk and cookies treat is undeniably cute. There were so many other fun Festive Surprise 2015 mask Snaps as well that it was very hard to choose just 5, so a special shout out to some honorable mentions along those lines such as missNxkolette for her “Are You Ready to Be Served?” unwitting Christmas turkey dinner guest and monkdogg69 for his gangster “Straight Outta the Oven!” Gingerbread Man among many others.
Finally, congratulations are also in order to the winners of the Executives & Other Criminals Social Club Event Weekend Sweepstakes prize packs: solid_snake_X, JudgmentDay86, STARZTV, lill-bad-boy and ipodipad.
