I've made a huge error in this contest. The Artist who would have won first place, I unfortunately have to disqualify from the contest. Even With all our voting steps myself and the other admins didn't catch that the entry isn't a tree but in fact a vine. I'm terribly sorry for this mishap, but the other top 9 entries will still have their places.

The other thing: You disqualified me? When? You didn't note me! You didn't comment! And you didn't asked me! You just only decided by reading some words of my comment... The plant(s) at the wall is vine. The tree at the door is a tree.
A wonderful theme! But I'm afraid I won't participate in any more contests where traditional art is mixed (and judged) together with photography and digital art. As I explained sometime before, traditional art simply gets lost in an ocean of photos, thus traditional artists automatically finds themselves in a disadvantageous position.
HOWEVER, I will gladly donate some points to this contest (how do I do it, by the way?)
I do see your point, However I must disagree a tiny bit.. Traditional & digital art has grown amazingly in our group, and as an example we had 2 traditional art and 1 digital art piece win in our most recent contest. trees-with-character.deviantar… ...And the contest before that we had a digital piece win first place and a traditional piece win honorable mention. trees-with-character.deviantar… Unfortunately it is much easier to point the camera and capture a moment than it is to paint a picture. Thus the reason we have a larger amount of photographers than traditional/digital artists in our group. You never can judge the outcome unless you try
You did however give a wonderful Idea to host a purely digital/traditional contest. (I hope you will enter that one )
