365 days of SL, day 119:


(Click for larger — 1920x1033 PNG, 1227 KiB)

Sometimes, the most striking screenshots can be obtained without any sort of planning. Last night was just conversation again; we didn't even go out, just stayed in my stateroom at BG, and I only noticed that I still hadn't got a single screenshot when it was almost time to leave. And I had no idea what I could do that would be remotely interesting.

But the goal is still to have something that's representative of what I did in some way, so I cammed around a bit, hoping to hit an interesting angle, and toyed with the environment — and it only took a minute or two (and two screenshots, total) to produce this one. I've had screenshots of Black Gazza by night before, in the pre-"365 days" days, but I just love how this one turned out. The stark contrast between the inky darkness the station's cast in and its light panels, the perspective — it really has a much stronger "space station" vibe than the previous ones.

Of course it's not perfect (there, that's my obligatory bit of self-deprecation), but I'm still very happy with it. :)

Location: Black Gazza (stateroom level)

Ooooo.. now that's quite a position of luxury indeed! One can but wonder. =:)

This is one of the upper tier of shots, I'd say - highly atmospheric, even if without the appearance of any residents. A landscape, except there's not much land involved. ^_^

*s* It sure is nice. BTW, there's two available for rent right now (take the elevator to level 16: Offices). 150 L$/week, 60 prims!

And thanks! ^^ I'm really quite happy with it myself — it probably won't come as a surprise that I'm often not quite critical of my own efforts (although apart from the early days, I can only think of one screenshot right now that I'm genuinely not happy with, day 99), but this one? I still like it, and I'm very glad that you do, too. :)

Thanks! ^^ It's quite stark, isn't it? And the angle makes the station seem so much more alive — it's almost as if it's leaning forward.
