    Poor Fang.

    Makes no sense. 1st and second place are mandatorily valid.

    I think Fang's entry has great depth, which can't be seen in Stryder's. But I get more 'Stone Age' feeling from Unforgotten picture due to the wisely placed objects and environment. Also if we're to count the technical aspect, Stryder takes the cake as well in my opinion.

    Good job both of ya!

    I really like them both. It’s too bad that there weren’t more entries. I think if there were more entries we would have seen many votes for both of these anyways.

    I cannot say I am surprised. In my opinion it is a boring theme.

    As for the entries. I'd consider's Fang's entry about 4/5 but as the other is 5/5 in my eyes it is not really close and I feel a bit sad that a decent entry becomes so overshadowed.

    Woah! Awesome entries indeed!

    Regarding the depth, Unforgotten's valley may indeed seem a bit flat near the center (a small region; mostly due to lighting), however its surroundings are pure 3D. This work is breathtaking. I'm just stunned.

    Lonely Megalith, on the other hand, looks cute and dreamy. But it lacks scope and some polish, in comparison. Also the sun looks a bit weird.
