Why did the Competition end early ?

I though it was due to end 20.00 GMT 7th or Feb according to your extended deadline.?

I've had to post my entry in another Thread.

It took me ~3 hours to gather all images from the competition thread. Just to give you all an idea how many submissions of actual renderings were made, I created this collage:

Isn't it amazing? It really made my day :)

It was a communication error, the comp was meant to end at 20:00 NZ time, eg GMT+12.
However, we have included all images posted and mailed to us before 20:00 GMT to compensate.
