Yes, and having tried Blender a few times, and found it not-at-all user
friendly, I'm always impressed when someone can produce something of
quality like Old Barn with it.

Well, I hoped it would do a bit better than it did, but wasn't expecting a
lot. I've noticed in past rounds that images that are 90% Poser don't fare
well.  I was pleasantly surprised that my concept score was the highest of
the three, I had expected to get a lot of 'off-topic' votes.

were actually much better.

Still, it's impressive to see what people can create in less

The fun is in the challenge...
