Wow! This challenge was the hardest to judge so far! The quality and quantity of entries just seems to increase every month. 

It was an incredibly difficult process to select a winner and runner ups, but in the end we selected: Paradise Lost by Kate Crossley. Between Caroline Julia Moore, Jason Hahn and I, we came up with several runner ups and honorable mentions! Enjoy the spectacular art below!

Prizes & Sponsors:

The runners up will receive a texture pack of their choice from Caroline Julia Moore Fine Art Textures & Elements!

Also, four entries were picked at random and will each receive a $25 gift certificate to the RawExchange store. The four winners are Bill Castle, Ilona Abou-Zolof, Athalie Taylor, and Christine Herman.
