Faraday Gardens have a great purple coloring, a lovely mist and to top it off, the concept itself is wonderful. I like the idea of garden outfitted with lightning mechanisms, also the terraining kinda reminds me of Minecraft too. :D

Doom Castle has some mist and looks somewhat sandy, I like that feel. The obsidian castle, in the middle of a sandy colored mist and several purplish bolts of lightning, really makes me feel like I'm about to storm a dungeon! <3

Beyond Inferno looks hot, and seeing an army of skeletons marching to the mountains is hot. Most of lightning bolts are too concentrated in the center, while the ones scattered to the sides look weak. I would have voted it if I had a third vote... :D

Frozen Spring looks like a great place to chill and hang out for a vacation, but having some custom-made fountains and a little more mist would make it much better. The green glow at the bottom right and the vertical rays of light are somewhat strange there. Overall, it's still a great picnic spot, I think. :)

I am a bit busy right now, so I may write my thoughts for other entries later. Stay tuned!

is not an army,and they are not skeletons, and since is the inferno, is a line of souls walking to the judgement, or some sort.

I just notice A) you can vote 2 entries, B) you can change your vote.

I forgot to see a poll numbers rolling fast, in other types of contest, you have to wait users to download and see all maps, until poll stalls, and or has 1 vote per day.
well probably this also happens in icon contest or model contest

Let's continue...

Lightning Singularity on Ice Valley makes you feel like you're in some frosty adventure in your quest for survival and treasure hunting. The ice, the darker environment together with the mist gives a great feel of coldness and desolation. The dark blue ruins make it feel like some lost, desolate chamber of treasures and wonders waiting to be uncovered. The ruins make it seem more desolate and ghostly, too. It looks great, but the lightning part frankly looks more like a river of molten fel liquid especially at first glance. Still, the thing looks cool and chill,

Not My Problem... Heh, I like the title. ;) The burning village is a great and sharp contrast to the rainy, dark night surrounding it. A sad, melancholic sight to behold, seeing your childhood home getting burnt to ashes and ruins while you are one of the only few survivors that had made it through to the outside. Only to be greeted by a tragic reminder as the brightness drew your eyes even more to the all-consuming great fire. Oh, the dragon is still around... which makes everything scarier... And you are just a powerless, puny mortal that could not ever hope to fly, let alone exacting your vengeance... Great scenery.

Valley of the Sharp Shires looks amazing (especially after a closer look/full view)! :O Two battlemages duke it out in the midst of a thunderstorm and on top of an exotic land of blueness. The lightning bolts and the ice crystals unleashed adds to the already cool scenery, making for a better scene. I think I'll vote for this after second thoughts. Great work, I like it
