Pros: Nice mate! Realistic map there, i love the detail in this map, its so realistic, and distinctive! when i play this map, i don't feel claustrophobic anymore (Cause 8/10 of the day I stay inside my room playing on my comp ^^ )
Cons: Hmm, theres actually nothing i can say about this here XD everything is perfect.
Improvements: You should make a De and CS version for this too! :D
Notes: Youre my mapping hero :>
Pros: I'm a very tough grader and you've earned my respect, to say the least, with this wonderfully made map. The thing that really gets my attention is the wonderful use of props and displacements in the water. I love your brushwork, your lighting, and your pond. You did a fantastic job with the fog, too, it fits in very nicely.
Cons: You might want to turn some of the trees to different angles. You use the same prop_static quite often. To be even more frank, I think you need a skybox. The current one lacks any creativity. I understand that you've enclosed the map in 4 sides of displacement stone walls, but it would look nice with some mountains in the background.
Improvements: Read above.
Notes: You've done a great job and should aim a little higher in the scope of what kind of maps you make. This isn't another run of the mill map, it's original. People will remember it because of your extensively detailed pond. Good luck in the mapping world, my friend. You've got my vote!
