    @Lynker wins my vote, mainly because of the high-quality scenery and water effects. The shot also features an excellent sub-screen and captures the enemies barreling down on Link. It's full of action.


    I've got some comments on the other images, as well. Take them or leave them as you please.

    @Ventus
    This is a good showing of a classic screen, particularly because of your use of edging combos to break the transition from sand to grass. Your sub-screen is a little plain, though, you may wish to consider replacing the map with an image of your over-world or removing it entirely and spreading out your other markers a little more.

    @Seastorm
    You've got a good custom GameBoy set there, and the sub-screen has an Alundra vibe (Alundra is one of my favorite games of all time, so that wins you bonus points). Still... a dungeon entrance isn't the best place to start with a screenshot. There's very little happening in the room, both due to its lack of enemies and also due to its lack of puzzle components. Of course it shouldn't have either of those things, being a dungeon entrance, but... as a contest submission you want the shot to have some mystery.

    @Shane
    The mountains are excellent. But... the screen is in the middle of nowhere. I know connecting screens are necessary in quests, and not every one can have something going for it, but this screen just doesn't feel like the right choice for contest material. It needs more.... Enemies, trees... I dunno.

    @SUCCESSOR
    The transition is too abrupt. Sorry. Also, the vibrant color of the woman and the flowers clashes with the subtle tones of the background. If you're using it to make those things stand out, then the step-stones need to be less vibrant.

    @Phazite
    I just couldn't get enthused about this shot. Maybe it's the sub-screen. Either that, or the screen needs some blue. It's very... green.

    @Majora
    You were neck-in-neck with Lynker, especially for your excellent use of lighting. But the shot feels... empty. I know for a fact the quest this shot comes from is full of action. If you put forth a dungeon shot, or possibly a dungeon exterior, you'd win my vote for sure next round.

    I agree on the lack of enemies, I would have added some but I'm building this tileset from ground up - enemies is something I still need to add to the tileset.=P

    Also SUCCESSOR is beating me!? *Flips a table with lots of stuff over and walks out in rage* Okay I'm obviously kidding, good screens guys!

    Oh my. There is too much competition for my poor little shot.

    @Ventus This shot is very nice. I do have a couple problems. The colors of the mountains just don't seem to fit the rest of the screen and I find those cross gravestone clash with the rest of the tiles.

    @Lynker I love this screen like I do all your screens but it feels a little crowded an over detailed.

    @Seastorm Very nice. Very very nice! I am hard pressed to find something about this screen not to like. I think the floor tiles by the doorways could use some different colors.

    @Shane I have told you how much I love this shot. I'd make babies with this shot!

    @SUCCESSOR spectacular work as always. You sir are an absolute genius and should be commended for your contribution to humanity.

    @Phazite I love the different trees on the bottom and very nice work with the mountains. No complaints what so ever.

    @Majora OMG what is this disaster?! JK. I love the simple look and design. I do think the squareness of the light/shade does more harm than good and the different trees clash a bit.

    Thanks!, I've been having some thoughts about changing the mountain color. I guess I should go and edit them. to make them look a little bit better.
    And the grave's, I was trying to go for realism. Graveyards in real life has different graves and some are dilapidated.

    Phazite got my vote. It's a nice, old-school screenshot that really caught my attention.

    I voted for Shane. I'm a sucker for ALttP mountains, and these are nicely used, and the added touches and details on the screen look very nice.

    The rest are good, but none really stand out among the many ZC shots that exist today. This was a pretty good turn out though. Hopefully SotW is always this active
