If it wasn't for the colour of the leaves in the foreground I'd have been hard pressed to tell that this was a render at all. Very impressive choice of materials and use of foliage. If anything I'd say that the shadows were perhaps a little too intense under the arch on the left and that the foreground folaige was an unnatural shade of green (well, here in England anyhow). But these are tiny criticisms. This is now my favourite Tonkin. 5/5

Modeling of the rocks is quite realistic, texture and lighting could be from a photo. The only problem I have is the composition- my attention is focused on the well-lit rock wall, while I barely notice the dark tunnel. Still, 5/5.

Very realistic, indeed. I have no qualms about the colour of the foreground plants. Peppermint or wormwood (vermouth) come to mind. Assuming a bright summer afternoon, the light and shadow at the rock entrance at left seem natural to me. Is there no pun or have I missed it? Top marks!

Again, seeing a work of yours leaves me with no words other then superlatives. You have a great sense of environmental reality, though you might know that already :) Do I hear 5/5... once... twice... vote!

that's the way to show the bryce naysayers that they are just simply unaware of the power of bryce. Your clever usage of flattened trees as moss and other random vegetation is just plain genius. The colors of your foreground plants is a little too bluish as most plants are not so blue and are more yellowish green like the moss stuff that's hanging. This image is so convincing that it's almost scary. Details details! 5/5
