Third Place

Interesting angles and choices, I find your overly gardened foreground contrasts excessively with the wild grassy background.

Jeff Kropp

A beautiful environment. I like the foreground. The design would benefit from a few 'holes' in the background planted 'wall'.

Wim van Drongelen

This is a lovely tank with luxuriant growth. The petrified wood pieces are impressive, but give the layout a bit of a lopsided feel.
