"Saying Goodbye" - Competition Results
We have a winner!! Definitely an unorthodox approach to the theme but it's one that I love. It's light hearted and fun. The lighting and colors are the hardest things to do well and you nailed it. The frothy part of the wave is the only weak point, but the rest makes up for it. Beaches are notoriously difficult to create (speaking from a first hand experience), so the fact that you managed to create believable sand AND waves in the same picture is nothing short of amazing.
So Congratulations Simon! You've won:
Thank you to everyone who entered this competition! I'm constantly surprised to see what the Blender community is capable of. Time and time again I'm wowed by the entries that are sent in. It truly is a blessing to have such an eager and ambitious audience.
Unfortunately I don't have enough time to explain why each image didn't win, but if you list your name in the comments I'm sure the community would be more than happy to offer you some constructive critiques.
The next competition will be announced in 2 weeks. Stay tuned :)
