Oh my.

This image.

Oh, the meteor fell in the Everfree Forest after all.

Immediately my vision was drawn to the object. Zoom in, observe it for any hints, any clues.
Six marks like six Elements. The shape is vaguely mask-like. Is it a head? Of a sculpture?
After a good minute of pondering I came to the obvious conclusion: it's there to tantalize us. It's a long time until we get to know what it's all about, a mystery. So, beyond observations I decided to give it a rest. I'd give a glimpse to the rest of the picture, pretty scenic backgrounds and move on.

So I did.
And only then I spotted Zecora.

Oh my. That was unexpected. Truly masterful use of focus and shadow to first draw my attention away from the "backgrounds" and then hit me on the head with them. I literally squealed from joy - Zecora is my third favorite pony (after the princesses), and introducing her here is bound to make the story awesome. Immediately, a conflict: "It's dangerous, don't touch it! No, she's wise, she knows what she's doing... I hope! Where, how would she learn this? I'd hate to see her fall the first victim of the newcomer! No, she's too smart for that. I'd hate you forever if you made her dumb enough to die now..."

And only then I spotted the little word cloud. "Luna."

Oh, Zecora knows this. That warm fuzzy feeling: everything's gonna be all right. Zecora and Luna. This will be awesome.

Look, you deserve five stars in all, Vision, Originality and Technique with this image. Wonderful work, disturbing vision (I do dislike the look of the "egg" - but I'm quite sure I'm supposed to dislike it.) But for Impact you deserve no less than six stars. That picture was the biggest WHOA of the last months for me.
What do you think?

You went all-out right here.
It has an ethereal, Ghibli-type feel. I love it.

WTF is this thing? Is it alien?!

If it comes from outer space, doesn't look natural, and the world one lives on does not have any orbital capabilities to speak of, then it's most likely alien.
