Honorable Mention

Awesome!

Karen Randall

Most of the time, colored backgrounds detract from the scape, but in this case, it compliments quite well with the ludwigia and rocks. The various textures and subtle colors blend nicely in the scape. The rockwork has good balance and isn't overpowering. Unfortunately, the bright white sand river is an eye sore to me. I think it has to do with it being so white and offering very little texture in coloration.
