Awards and Judge Comments

Lovely composition and beautifully presented. If I were to make one change, it would be to replace the white-streaked rock with one more in character with the other rocks. This one keeps dragging my eye away from your masterful layout.

Karen Randall

Very good rock work and I like the exposed rock above the water too. The plant selection is good and well-exectuted but I feel the H. Micranthemoides could have been pruned/re-grown a little better to maintain the lush appearance. I also don't think the hairgrass to the left does much for the design. Overall a very good job though, well done!

George Farmer

The starkly different and poorly positioned striated rock on the far right is so eye grabbing that the rest of the layout is lost to the viewer. The other rocks have great character and there is a pleasant, gentile ambiance to this aquascape. A strong, centrally located focal point would add much drama to this scene.
