1ST PLACE: C8X PISCES INVICTUS STARTER PACK (10 Years)
Freelancer N82 Crash Site on Daymar
A wrecked Freelancer on Daymar against the backdrop of a stunning Crusader-rise. Hasgaha's picture perfectly illustrates the location, both assisting any adventurers who might be looking for a small, familiar wreck to explore and capturing the natural beauty of a gas giant planet-rise beckoning you to not dwell on the past, but rather to seek out new adventures amongst the stars.
LIFE IS ART Runner-up: MULE + SMOKESTACK PAINT (LTI)
Starfarer N48 Crash Site on Cellin
Valalol is telling us a story of a once great gentle giant, slain, beheaded, and left to rot. Picked clean by scavengers in these desolate wastes of a nearby moon, this lumbering behemoth deserved better. It's with great sadness we cannot commend its remains to the void.
BUSINESS... AND PLEASURE Runner-up: MULE + SMOKESTACK PAINT (LTI)
SirBobe means business... but not at the cost of getting an aesthetically pleasing shot. You immediately know what you're in for when you arrive at SAL-5: Platinum Bay Vehicle Services in the foreground, medium and large landing pads in the midground, and the gentle, rolling hills of icy Lyria in the background, ready to chill any adventures who stray too far from business in search of a little pleasure.
ATMOSPHERIC SCI-FI Runner-up: MULE + SMOKESTACK PAINT (LTI)
Julep Ravine Aid Shelter on Cellin
Isolated in space with only a star-rise and simultaneous planet-rise as company, this atmospheric shot by DinoZ of a lonely aid shelter instantly makes you feel alone in space, with the hull of your ship the only thing separating you from the inky blackness between the stars.
