This a track that never got a proper screenshot, so I thought.... why not make a competition for one?

:gold: 5000p + Large showcase on trackpage
:silver: 2000p + Small showcase on trackpage
:bronze: 1000p + Small showcase on trackpage

You can find replays on the track page.

Name on the screenshot should be simply: Vroom

Deadline: 31.01.2016

:d Very creative screenshot dMw! Love the personality of it. It reminds me of playing with hotwheels cars when I was a kid, or those cars you'd pull back and then set them down and let them go. Your screenshot wasn't what I was expecting, but I like it. And that's a nice thing about screenshot contests... you get to see other people's personality come out in their work.

Thanks!!! It's nice to be a bit more active again. :d

mgafMUAT, I'll be honest.. I'm not too fond of the text on yours. A nice effort though, and I'm glad to have more than one entry here so far! (y)

Thanks to both of you. :)

I'm pretty open to different styles. I've even tried different styles myself.

A lot of my TM2 screenshots tend to be low angles beside the car with some motion blur. Like this one:



I guess those are pretty standard, and maybe even get a little boring after a while. They also don't show much of the track itself.

I've done some that were inspired by DaKKoN's style of screenshots on TMX United. Here's two of mine that were somewhat inspired by his style:





Those are somewhat similar to mgafMUAT's screenshot I suppose, with the overlayed cars with feathered edges.

I do like screenshots that show a bit of the track too though, especially if you can find a part of the track that looks nice, which might be hard on my track as I'm not that great with scenery. It works well with some people's tracks though. Like this one I did for NitroGuy:



And this one I did for tuutti here on MX:



I also like minimalistic screenshots, like this:



Those are some of the types of screenshots I like. :) I guess if I were to put it in words... I like good quality, a nice angle, well placed text, and good color and contrast across the whole screenshot. I like everything to feel like it belongs there, if that makes sense. And I don't always achieve that with my own screenshots.

In more recent years, I've come to appreciate screenshots that actually give some insight into the track I'll be playing. Screenshots that obscure what the actual time of day is in the track or otherwise go overboard to obscure details about the actual nature of the track itself are interesting to look at, but might not go well on a track page.

The screenshot I'm most disappointed in of the ones I've made... was this one:



In my opinion the text is not well placed, or the overlay behind it. Also the angle and space scene feel overused, or at least it was overused at the time... it was quite a popular thing to add to TM screenshots back in the day. Not fond of the colors either. :p And lastly it's not the correct aspect ratio, so bars had to be added to make it letterbox. Track screenshots are small enough without further making them smaller by adding bars.

Anyway, maybe that gives some insight into what I like.

Contest is still open until the 31st. :) More entries welcome. You're welcome to submit multiple screenshots too if you have another idea. Thanks for reading.

when I saw your track's title I immediately thought about playing with toy cars as a kid running around with a small car in my hand shouting "vrooom vrooooooooom" so I tryed to create that image :p

and thanks for your detailed selection of screenshots, my entry is a quick work maybe i'll try something different too. I like trying different angles and styles!

I tryed something different, I liked the idea behind qbot screen with 4 similar angles on valley car to show different part of the track. so I chose an angle on the car and took screenshots in different part of your track and combined them together.
