Awards and Judge Comments

Nice layout, but your Rotala doesn't add much at this point. Try to develop a nice thick stand of Rotala or leave it out altogether.

Karen Randall

Normally, parallel lines don't work, but so many, and at such an angle give me a very unique visual. this scape reminds me of some Scifi space ship that crashed into the planet with its tail sticking out, eons ago and the earth swallowed it up with vegitation. There is a very old and balanced (blended) feel here. I quite like it. Te hydrocotyle add a very appropriate texture. I do fin the few straggly stems in the center and back right to be out of place.
