Awards and Judge Comments

An interesting idea, but I like an aquascape to stand on its own, not be dependent on a photo suspended behind it. Your hardscape is interesting, but the groundcover on the right needs to fill in, and the Pogostemon helferi looks a little lost.

Karen Randall

A bold attempt with the backgrounds, but I don't think it worked in your favor. A bit of play with the elevations would have helped on your totem pole theme.
