As I did last week (...was it last week?) I have to vote for Monlux. I love the subtitle under the UFO. - it makes the entry look like a movie teaser.

Kyra, without any prior conversation with dad, also votes for Andrea's grapes. "They almost look real."

I vote for Brian, but I must say that I giggled at thorax o'tool's piece :) and the grapes and eye are awesome!

My vote goes to Dawn

by KevinFreitas

Shoot, this is a tough one. I love Andrea's grapes 'cause they just look good enough to eat. Troy's is just fantastically whimsical while Monlux's is random and clever. Dawn did a great job on a new surface though too. She comes in a close second but my vote goes to Troy this week.

I also like Andrea's grapes. Very realistic. Even if there's no bicycle.
