*is hit in the face with wall of bricks text* Even I don't write them that long!
It was interesting how you applied yet another restriction to your wall, aside from the round requirements~ Dat properly used lens flare, unf. And kudos for having insane amounts of red yet no pixelation, not to mention doing so much blending; it's rare to see that nowadays, what with vectoring being the easier/faster/less frustrating way to deal with things. Yeah, I still think your wall was one of the best of the round, and the update just makes it even better.
I kinda prefer both, actually. The lighting is heaps better and more dramatic in the MT version, but I really like the clouds on the sides in the KO entry D: So to you I say: why not both? They each have their strong points, so I don't feel like trading one for the other. I'll probably have them on rotation.
You CAN turn in the wall 1-2 days after the deadline, but it should ideally be as close to it as possible. Don't want to give the judges trouble :3 Just know that if you want to ask for a 1-2 day extension, you can, and without being deducted points or anything. *runs from angry knife-wielding pamkips*
