I'm with Ann on this, Sam ~ impossible to figure out why the judges by-passed this gorgeous creation.
Somewhere down the road, do try it again. I remember three-four years ago, a third-time entry that ended up with the Grand Prize...

Sam, this is so unique and creative!! I love the shapes and how you have transformed it. The colours in the gradiant really set it off nicely. This inspires me to work harder on some of my own images. Kudos on having faith in your work and resubmitting. This one is truly spectacular!!
