Judges Comments

With Victoria's world, it's the most imaginative picture of the whole lot, with interesting, detailed modelling (the detail views are great) It lacks focus in composition: there's so much stuff that it's hard to see what's going on.

Really captured a "fantasy" feel very well. Great attention to detail, perhaps a bit too busy which made it difficult to find a focus point for the image. Some great ideas nonetheless.
