Other comments: More shots of the minifigures would’ve been appreciated to make judging easier. And, Larry, as long as you have an entry in this round you cannot judge, and the maximum score for a category is 25.
To remove bias, I have refrained from scoring this creation on a scale from "Not good" to "Excellent" per MOCpages customs. Minifigures: 23 --- Creativity: 15 --- Build: 19 --- Real: 19 --- Total: 77 Great entry, Luna! I loved the "happiness" coming out of Sirius, as well as one of your trees. You'll see a significant drop in the 'creativity' category due to your use of the tree in the set The Forbidden Forest. Your other tree is wonderful and makes use of fascinating building techniques, and I would've loved to see you build something equally fascinating instead of relying on a set. I have decided that, in my own judging, I will give perfect scores in the 'minifigures' category simply because I don't think it's fair to be downgraded for using official minifigures - I took off two poinst from your score in this category as I did not find your one deviance from the figs, Harry's hair, satisfactory, and because I felt that the difference in the yellow skin portion of Sirius's torso piece and his hands and face clashed. I did not downgrade solely on the basis of whether or not you customize figs.
I like the way you made the happiness coming out of Sirius. I tried to think of various ways to do it when I was making mine but decided to just not use it in the end.
Good luck with the contest.
