Very nice rock work and planting layout. It's too bad that at the time the photo was taken, there were so many little stems sticking straight up. Try to give yourself time to take photos at MANY points in the tank's development, so you can choose the very best presentation for a contest.

I wish I could have seen this in a larger image. The bold, upfront hardscape contrasted against the delicate background is very appealing to me. However, the Repens and Lobella feel really out of place. I would have liked to seen the back left stems to be peaking out behind the "mountains" rather than shadow them.
