    Bec:
    This is a great picture Vid. I absolutely love how Violet's hair has movement and you can see the snow swirling around in the wind in front of her, it really adds realism and depth to the picture. Her outfit is amazing and you kept it gothic as well which is great. I just wish the wolf was more visible, it blends into the background too much. I would have liked it looking at her snarling, maybe even have the background darker so all you could see was a dark figure with glowing eyes or something spooky like that. Apart from that I like it, you did really well.

    Really great photo Vid. There's really not much to criticize here. The background looks great. I prolly would have chosen a longer dress, but the styling was great. Love the use of the crow, it's just the basket would have been better near her feet. I feel my eyes wander to it instead of the model, and that's probably because there is nothing on the other side of her to balance it.

    I love the sense of movement in this photo, it really brings it up a notch and makes it wonderful to look at. You did a great job on the hair and wind, and we can clearly see what your fairy tale is. The gothic-ness is spot on in this photo too! Well done!

    Bec:
    I love the set you created for this picture Socal, it looks great. Evanna looks fantastic too and I think pose works really well. I really like how you can see the witch in the fire, it really shows which fairy tale you chose. You did well adding Hansel to the picture without him taking over, Evanna is still the main focus. This is a great shot, well done.

    Le:
    Great idea to have the witch in the oven instead. I love the old fashion kitchen setting you created, which really matches well with the fairy tale. Your model looks strong, and I like the color chosen for her outfit. It was a nice pop of color from an otherwise drab background. Good job!

    Neiph:
    I really like the story telling in this shot, it's very clearly Hansel and Gretel whilst still being high fashion. The witch in the oven is a great add, as well as Hansel in the background. The poses here are spot on and so is the fashion and gothic element. Well done!

    Bec:
    I see where you were going with this picture however it just doesn't quite work for me. I think if Evita was posing differently it would instantly improve this shot, her current pose is pretty awkward. The set and extras have gothic elements but Evita doesn't which is a shame, I would have loved some dark makeup on her. She unfortunately gets lost amongst the extras as well, if the other girls were to one side or just back a bit further it would have helped make Evita the focus. I do like the glass slipper and how you presented it though and the set itself is good, just a few changes could have improved the shot overall.

    Le:
    Great attempt on this, however the pose used for your model is a bit awkward, and there is a huge amount of unnecessary shading on her chest (I get some of it is dirt) and on the extras as well. It would have been better if the extras were sitting too, instead of towering over her, and your model is also not dressed overly gothic. Also for the Step Sisters they would be trying to undermine each other not have one hugging the other from behind. Lots of good elements in this, they just didn't add up enough.

    Neiph:
    I like the overall feel of this shot, and it's very clear what your fairy tale is. The gothicness of the bloody glass slipper was a nice touch, but I feel you could have made Evita more gothic, with darker make up and perhaps a darker top. I do like the clothes she is wearing however, it is a very high fashion take on Cinderella! I think you did a great job this round!

    A note from the Judges -

    Bec:
    Vid- Congratulations! I knew from the start you would be one to watch and I'm not surprised you won. You're very creative with your set designs and you have produced some fantastic pictures, many of my favourites too. A well deserved win.

    Socal- Congratulations on second place! You certainly earned your place in the final 3 by producing some great pictures, I loved seeing what you came up with each assignment. Well done.

    Joe- Congratulations on third place! You have produced some good pictures and have improved a lot throughout this competition, making it to the final 3 is an achievement itself so you should be proud.

    Neiph:
    Vid - Well done! You produced amazing pictures all throughout the comp and should be proud!

    Socal- Congratulations on second place! You showed your talent as a marvellous set builder this comp and you did great!

    Joe- Your editing skills have improved so much over these past few months, it was great to see what creative ideas you came up with week to week, you really did well! Congrats!
