Doesn't really matter for screenshots, screenshots are 0 FPS.
A new screenshot of almost-done map (hope you`ll like it)
Btw, I`ve uploaded my weird beta of the map, so you can test it
Koth_snowvalley_beta has been stealing alot brushes and details from other maps.

I'd assume it isn't allowed to copy and paste brushes in this contest?
So, and what now? I agree that rocket chamber is just coping from other maps, but in other cases - no. Because you can see the same things even on official maps, like doublecross (2fort ambar) or process (big window over last points), mountain lab is using the same content as gorge. And dont forget that it`s BETA. I have not started interior yet, so I just took some brushes that will create main geometry of level. So I wanna say you thought wrong.
How do you know they copied the brushwork? Maybe they were just really heavily inspired by these other maps. It happens all the time. You could maybe argue the rocket is too similar, but the 2Fort barn is so generic that it's hard to make something inspired by it without looking like you copied the brushwork. There are other maps that use that exact style of barn, in which it could likely be argued that the mapper copied the brushwork- the first one that comes to mind is arena_byre.
EDIT: I looked at the imgur album, and the coldfront one is still the only legitimate complaint you have. Again, the Gorge dome is quite generic and also probably pretty easy to recreate by hand, and the 2fort door hardly resembles the snowvalley doorway (there are only so many ways to make a doorframe in TF2). 2Fort windows are again, very generic and simple, I think the granary barn is a prop (but if not, it's still quite simple), and the mountainlab example is again, simple to hand-recreate (in fact, Mountainlab actually copied that area from Gorge).
Not only that, but they're very different sizes if you look closely.
Updates for the information.

Hmm... That is... A lot of "borrowed" brushwork...
@Rissy The staff have reviewed these images and decided that it counts as plagiarism. We ask that you remove or remake all stolen brushwork by the deadline, or your map will be disqualified from the contest.
That escalated quickly.
