I Scream Clone - 5 Points
You are my favourite, such a fantastic diorama. You have created a great sense of contrast between the foliage and trees of the left side, the large stone temple of the right, and the sea out the front. Your use of parts all over is interesting, and the mix of colours is very appealing to the eye. I particularly love the use of parts on the detailing if the temple, very well done there. The sea shore is very realistic, and the use of different shades of tan gives subtle interest to the beach. Lastly, this diorama has a good sense of humour which I highly value, from the interesting beliefs of the natives to the mermaids and antics of the pirates. It is all very well thought out and executed, and you deserve the majority of my points fully.

I really like this build, it is well laid out and has a nice overall sense of space. The rocks and buildings are particularly well executed, with a lively feel in the town through the use of the different colours in the wooden buildings. Some interesting action with the minifigs adds a nice level of interest, and one detail I really like is the artillery battery and the interesting fortifications that they are set on. A few cannons are always a nice addition to a seaside town.
Derfel Cadarn - 1 Point
I had to give this MOC a point for its lovely execution of the foliage and topography, I really think this is very well done. The beach sits nicely in the centre, and the path up to the house at the top is a nice addition. I really like the vibrant colours in the foliage too, it contrasts well with the monotonous dary grey of the cliff face. Good job.

Right, so ...
3 Points - Infomaniac's "Slippery Eel"
The building construction is unique and realistic, with interesting angles and good color choices. The figures are assorted and have good story and action. The hanged pirates are showcased so their deaths seem gruesome. But ultimately, this scored highest with me purely based on the stone-work. Those curved walls, and how they contrast with the darker gray of the sea-wall. The 2xRoundx2 curved wall formula really knocked me out of the park in this construct.
2 Points - Evildead's "Royale Trading Post"
I love the yellow/white walls and the exposed brick, the use of the classic colors. Love the tower, and especially love the Spanish tile style roof shingles. It could use water, of course ... but it reminds me a ton of the village in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, with its windmill and rocky outcropping with a tower. And since some day my hope is to actually recreate that small island (Windfall Island, for those curious) out of Lego (some day ...) it's nice to see similar little islands. I am a little critical of the landscaping, which I think, had the model had some water, there could've been great rocky outcroppings that made the lower portion seem less "squared off" and more irregular.
2 Points - Derfel Cardarn's "Renegade Redcoat Rum Runners"
Gorgeous landscaping and bountiful grass and greenery clinging to the rock for a perfect natural landscape is a nice start, but that house, using the same style he impressed the heck out of me using on that church, of all 1x1 round tiles? Insane. The cobblestone effect done perfectly. The cove itself, tucked smartly between stairs/sentry and flowery outcrop, the technique in the water (the horizontal layout of the blue tiles gives it a bit of a wave vibe, subtle since it's cut off by every other vertical line between tiles, but it still holds up). Too good. I wish he'd do an Islander-theme model at some point, with the same tall rocks and dense plants he's been using to good effect for Pirates and Soldiers.
I wish I had more points to give out!
