First Place

Even better than Mountainscape V1! (see 'small' category entry #184) The rocks along the foreground and path to rear work very well and the idea gets top marks for innovation. The layout is composed brilliantly and the overall impression is superb. Wonderful stuff.

George Farmer

Nice idea and beautifully executed. The "mountain" stones are, perhaps, a little TOO sharp and jagged. Nice choice of fish.

Karen Randall

A pleasing view of far away. What great design technique it was to put rocks of lessor size behind the main peaks. The result is a pleasant sense of visual depth that enhances this layout's importance.

Bob Vivian

I gave my highest evaluation to this aquascape in ADA's International Aquatic Plants Layout Contest. The use of stones on the foreground looks very unique, and the arrangement of the stones is well-balanced. Using only Hemianthus callitrichoides "Cuba" in the entire scene is a key to the successful outcome. Presenting a wide perspective, the aquascape has skillfully completed itself at a higher level.
