My first time on this side of the fence. It's not an easy call trying to weigh the amount of effort, creativity, and technique, but a lot of fun never the less. And one mustn't forget about the very important "drool component", the presentation - aka "The Money Shot."
He he... Now you know why we call it the "hot seat!" I knew it was only a matter of time before you got to sit in it.
Judging this thing is never easy, and you did a great job (especially with your summary)!
