Oh wow, these are all wonderful! :o It's good that we have a full month to vote because I really cannot decide which three to chose right now! There are some I think I recognise who made them (but *shhh!* - I won't say anything ;D ). Oh, is this really topic #666?  :o ;D

Very good dioramas everyone.

#1 The scale works pretty well (it is sometimes dificcult to do so).
#2 Beautiful. I must say that the water effect(without water) brings me inspiration for my own diorama (may be next year).
#3 Nice light & shadows game.
#4 It puts me think what happens next. To me the fox is smart enought to get away as son as the confrontation starts.
#5 The Jaguar is emblematic to my country (México), it was a god indeed. I just want to know what the jaguar is watching at.
#6 Its so pretty and reallistic. It like a shoot from a NatGeo cameraman.
#7 Nice diorama, but i just want to see it from another angle. Still a good scene.
#8 Something i like about this diorama is the sky and the animals in the backgroud.
#9 Flowers bring life to the scene. The tittle immediately puts you on the situation.

Good luck to all of you.

haha, yes, it is!  >:D

Less than 10 votes so far and every diorama has at least one vote. This might be a very close call!

I hope they'll let us know after the contest is being done :).

Isn't that what contests are all about? Letting us know where the figures we don't know are from :)) (joking).

Yes, a tie-break poll is on the cards! But congratulations to dioramas 1 and 8, both entrants are now guaranteed a prize. Dioramas 5 and 6 are jostling for third place.

So, I've set up two tie break polls. One to decide first (and second) place, and one to decide third, head to the polls to cast your votes:

http://www.animaltoyforum.com/index.php/topic,689.0.html

http://www.animaltoyforum.com/index.php/topic,688.0.html

Entrants will remain anonymous until the winners are selected.

Commiserations and thanks to the other entrants, you all did well and it was a very difficult choice!

Yay, congrats, everyone! :) But now it seems even harder to decide! :o All contributions that made it to the tie breaks would be a worthy winner! :)
