That brings up an interesting thought I had yesterday. I don't know how 
the judges are going to judge the entries but it seems like this is 
going to be the hardest judgement of their lives. Even just from seeing 
the one image that has been revealed (I don't remember the author...I 
believe the name of the image was "Girl With An Earring" or something 
along that line), I can tell you that my entry is completely different, 
technically and thematically. It's just a whole different image. There's 
not really any good comparison. So, it's kind of hard for me to know 
that "yes, my second entry would be better." It's subjective, really. 
I'm sure the judges will do their best to be as objective as possible, 
but it just seems like they'll be comparing apples to oranges to bananas 
to pears (in which the lowest common denominator is that those are all 
fruit...in this case, rendered with POV).

Yeah I know - I was just going to submit the image to the highend3d 
artist gallery after the competition and the like a little "Image 
Completion Time" blurb in the description. :)
