  What the judges said:  
 

"A perfect piece of nature. Everything feels like it belongs there. Beautiful subdued colors, perfect texturing and lighting. Not trying to show off... amazing Vue work.."
Eran Dinur.
"This image just pulled me in from the start. I feels like a real mysterious forest and has so much detail that I get lost. The lighting is subtle enough to feel like a photo and has nice depth. It really is a nice piece of work! Congrates!."
Dark Hoffman.
"Awesome forest! Nice mixture of different species. A few color correction such as contrast can make this image totally photoreal!"
Susumu Yukuhiro.
"This forest is very well rendered with a superb photo-real result, although dense greenery throughout there is a lot of variety when you look at the details."
Tom Greenway.

  What the judges said:
