Just a sky screen. Nothing too special.

Ooh! I like all of these shots.

I like the overall composition of Shoshon's shot. It's a little hard for me to tell if the door is in the foreground or the background, but otherwise the contrast is stark. The windows are a nice touch.

Xanadude's is dark and foreboding and mysterious. I like the overall composition.

Klop422's strikes me for its use of layers effectively.

Tough call, but voted for Shoshon.

I need to stop looking at these on my phone first. For some reason, Xanadude's shot was looking really boring on my phone screen (was a little confused how it was winning, tbh - not in a petty way although I should be winning, just in a 'I can't see this screen properly and it looks worse than it is').

 

In any case, I agree in that it's very atmospheric. I think what I missed (and what kind of makes the shot) are the shadows on the upper half of the screen. Just makes the swamp area (I presume) much danker looking (in the original sense of the word).

 

Shoshon's shot is also really nice. The door of time looks really good (though I agree that it looks kind of out-of-place - maybe some shading around the edges would help with that), but overall it's really nice.

 

But everyone knows sky screens are best :P

I totally get that, and to be fair, it is generally not a complex shot to begin with.

Thing is, I've looked at a few SotWs on my phone before looking at them on my computer, and there's always something off about it. This is probably the worst example, where who I would vote for (if I hadn't entered) would likely have been affected majorly by the difference in the displays.

 

Anyway, despite the simplicity, the shadows and colouration make the screen really atmospheric, so good job on that.
