Scores:

5 - 7 = 12
10 - 10 = 20

sassquatch this was never going to be an easy battle going up against the 2nd seed, but you done amazingly well, your first round I was a bit lost on the focus within the image but your second round was amazing, I would have love to seen a couple of adjustment layers to tie it all together but all in all great work.
deedl your a super star, I really love your style and if you can keep it up I see you taking it to some of the old time cagers.

----------------------------------------
5 - 6 = 11
8 - 7 = 15

R1:1 great point of view but sorry to say it's highly over filtered and seems mostly out of focus. Some better contrast and defined details would have made a bigger impact. R1:2 a fashionable fairytale. Nice used of color, light and composition. R2:1 very interesting and somewhat slapstick feel where things are exaggerated and off angle. You went a little liberal on the sunbeams in the center. R2:2 lighting isn't quite right here with the rim lighting placed on all elements. Good composition with depth.

----------------------------------------
8 - 6 = 14
9 - 10 = 19

Sassqwatch had such an amazing first blow - truly interesting and terrifying, however, there seemed to be issues with perspective and lighting in his second blow. Deedl hit a homerun with both blows - Stunning style, interesting concepts, and captivating compositions. Great work both of you.
