I think C is absolute perfection. STUNNING. I hate to tell you to nix part that I'm sure you worked so hard on, but I do kind of think it competes too much and the subtlety of C really wowed me.

Hi Erin, You've created such an impressive nativity seems a shame not to use it. Because the artwork is bold maybe try making it smaller, and have more distance between the roof and the star to create a more expansive feel. C is the most "minted" but since this is a unique-first-time religious challenge why not play to that theme? Good luck, you have a lot of nice submissions. . : )

I like your illustration but I would save it for a nonphoto challenge. The simplicity of C is absolutely beautiful and that night sky is amazing!

This is really pretty but I can see why it would be difficult to make it a photo card. the manager scene on the right is really sweet, but I think you could maybe get rid of it and just have the three kings crossing the sunset a little larger instead.

have you tried a horizontal version, Erin? No border on the photo and have it bleed? Maybe lose the camels on that version and stack the type in the dark area. Or keep the camels and lose the manger? Make the star more prominent. that's easily recognizable for Christmas. just a few thoughts.
