If you're serious about what you wrote, you wouldn't give him a 9.7/10.
The map is far from perfect, and there's alot of things that could be improved. What I see from your screenshots is a giant displacement surface, and a bunch of prop models scattered around.
The bloom is way overdone, and it makes the snow texture almost impossible to see because you're constantly blinded by the bright light.
If you look at the screenshots, it's hard to make out the the actual layout of the map, all I see is a white surface with 3 copied props. It's something any mapper could make in a couple of minutes. At least spend a few more days on your map before you decide to release your possible update of the map.
Anyway, here's some tips you can use to help improve your map:
* Tone down the bloom
* Add more props and details to keep it from looking like a giant empty canvas
* Make some variation between the boats
* Custom textures and weather effects
