Not sure but I think this is CaptainSMITTY's work...! I like the overall composition better here than in the other chop...! Yet the execution is better on the other one...! Really a tough choice...! +1

nice feel and employment of tilt-shift.

BOTH of these entries ROCK. Very cool indeed. Smart "interpretation" of the source photo. This one gets my vote as I'm a sucker for Depth of Focus in a composition... and also that crazy STEPHEN KING POSSESSED TRACTOR threatening in the background is nice. The only thing that makes this seem unreal is that everyone knows a baby would NEVER RISK ITS LIFE FOR A FRICKIN APPLE! (well, maybe if it was an iPAD2)

Talk about two solid entries. I hope people don't get entirely hung up on the lack of source material in the other one. I once did an entry where I did virtually the same thing with foam pellets and bees and won the contest. It is a valid and well done chop. That said, the effort and feel of this image is magnificent. Inconsistent apple sizes aside, this is my fave thus far.

Good composition. The perspective on the turned blocks is too extreme.

Apple search-off; even though the other is pretty, the use of source is rather too subtle, so this wins for good use of blocks even though it has some issues

Great matchup! This image could be my favorite of the round. fuckin awesome! I hope youll share the psd with me! As for the other I love the idea but the execution could have been a bit more crisp.

Tough vote...but the crates win it for me. Very well done. The other entry is also quite good but theres something off with the white fence thingy in the top right corner that puts me off...

great idea! kicked my ass i think but this was definitely a good match up like i thought. had either of us been paired with a different person we probably would have won hands down but this makes it exciting. Best of luck great work here :)

Both of these are very good! I love the depth of field in the other; a few crates have perspective/scale issues and maybe all blocks should have been changed to complete things. In this, resetting the scene works pretty well: nice lighting/shadows; the bright flowers/lone leaves are a bit too stark but good effort overall!
drybie drybie
Different isn't always good but in this case it is. Although there are things that maybe I would have omitted or changed like the apple or the fence, the idea wins me over. The other has apple issues too, but I'm just not sure what's going on there.

This is the first time I used a coin flip to determine which image to vote for... Both images are pretty equal in my mind. I love the idea here and the chopping is superb (with some very minor lighting problems), but the original source is gone (besides hints with the placement of the blocks, leaves, apple, cat, etc.). The other does more with the source and also has a great idea but the perspective of the boxes is erratic. Both minor flaws. Congratulations to both; wish I could vote for both. *lol* This one won the flip.

hmph love the cat... i like the other too but this perspective got my eye.

Excellent match! I prefer this composition. Very nice! Maybe the white fence is too clean & too strong contrast.

I can't give anymore comment, because each comment just makes me swing back from the one to the other. My last swing was here. Toughest choice of all games. Congrats to the both of you

both good this one bit more thinking outside the box.
