Completely agree with you. This picture deserves to win when we see the 5 winners. This piece is one of my favourites and some others wich reflect perfectly the Syd Mead's style deserve also to win. Great job man, so many details, the colours, the style ... perfectly Syd Mead !
I have also participate to this contest, sure I haven't the Syd Mead's style but I have tried to rendering some futuristic atmosphere.
