congrats man,that was awsome,btw i liked yours better than mine.
Thanks renju. Nothing personal with you, but i think the same;-)
I was looking your image at high res and found a lot of 'dirty jobs' that don't like.. seems like you have painted hairs, shadows in compositing.. there are some strange blurs everywhere. Seems you did a lot of (forgive me, bad) work in compositing.
Don't get me wrong, your idea is great, you did anyway a great job, but I think that there have been more images better than yours and cant't explain your second place.
Take this as a costructive critique and make attention to these details next time.
I repeat: nothing personal with you.
Congratulations for the second place
