Enter Enchantment’s The Nutcracker Photo Contest!

The Nutcracker was written in 1816 by Prussian author E. T. A. Hoffmann, in which young Marie Stahlbaum’s favorite Christmas toy, the Nutcracker, comes alive and, after defeating the evil Mouse King in battle, whisks her away to a magical kingdom populated by dolls. Over the years this story has been adapted in many forms from a ballet to movies. The most famous adaptation is “Princess Pirlipatine and the Nutcracker” book by Alexander Dumas (1844) which formed the basis for the next centuries nutcracker ballet adaptations.

And the winners are…..

1st Place
The Lost Unicorn by Sparklingstar
Simply said….stunning, beautiful, and amazing composition while encompassing the overall beauty of Finian’s.

2nd Place
Lost and Wandering by Razor Cure
Great composition, color, softness and lighting while still showing 2 sides of the sim…the beauty and innocence of the flowers in the foreground combined with the dark, unyielding bridge in the background, all the while telling a story with the avatar’s silhouette. Where is he going? Who is he? Is he lost? Amazing work!

3rd Place
Moonlight and Magic by Amileaa
This picture speaks for itself and embodies the elements of the sim with the forest, wildlife and waters while still exuding pure magic.

Honorable Mentions

Door to the Lost Realm by MiniVodka
Simply stunning and beautiful picture of the Portal between worlds. The intense blue against the darkness has a great effect while still showing elements of the forest by use of the perfect angle!

Fantastic Forest by Daikota Wind
Beautiful picture of the deep forest with the forest goddess keeping guard. Great colors and composition!

The Long Journey by Oceane Atheria
Creative, original work that tells a story and makes us wonder what’s happening while still portraying the beauty of Finian’s. Great composition, color, poses and styling!

For Our Kingdom by Adam Cayden
Stunning work with the choice of poses and the elves placed in the perfect spot. This picture tells a story while showing the beautiful color, lighting and magic of Finian’s!

Battle of Evermore by Alsatian Kidd
Very creative, colorful and unique capture that is so realistic and full of activity! Love the story being told here and most would not have chosen this part of the sim to take a picture, but Alsatian pulled it off beautifully!

A Fairy Song by Taboo
Stunning capture of the staircase to magic. Great composition and the angle is perfect!

Entry 2 (Bears) by John Garrison
Classic picture of the fisherman’s retreat with forest, waterfalls and wildlife all composed beautifully. Like a postcard!
