Both of these entries are pretty good, Brickninja did a good job on the vegetation but I feel your transition down to the water is a bit lacking. Josdu's chariot idea is really great and a bit more impressive in terms of the battle scene. On the other hand his irregular border has a few straight lines too many, but then that cliff as backdrop does help set it off quite nicely. In the end, my vote goes to Josdu, but not by much!
