"Perfectly lit and composed, this image is not only photo-real but also beautiful and evocative."
Eran Dinur - VFX Supervisor at Brainstorm Digital.

"The realistic quality of the cold light and subtle values make this an incredible render and could be mistaken for a photo. Great job!"
Dark Hoffman - Digital Artist at Pixomondo.

"This image would have fooled me as a photograph!"
Susumu Yukuhiro - Matte Painting Supervisor at Whiskytree.

"This image is so flawlessly exectuted. Even the lens flare, which could have been so easily overdone, is perfectly controled!"

  What the judges said:  
 

"Very attractive and naturalistic scene, with many interesting stories going on. Very interesting and detailed water and water edge. The far side rocks are terrific. There are so many interesting areas to look at but they all have the same amount of emphasis. Beautifully detailed."
Paul Huston - Senior Digital Matte Artist at Industrial Light & Magic.

"I love the detail and feel of this piece. I usually don't like adding people or animals to my environments but they are subtle and looks like they took a picture of a quiet cozy fishing cove."
Dark Hoffman - Digital Artist at Pixomondo.

"Awesome level of detail. The shallowness of the water is very well done!"
Susumu Yukuhiro - Matte Painting Supervisor at Whiskytree.

"Beautiful, serene image - looks technically difficult too."
Steve Jarratt - Senior Editor 3D World Magazine.
