Honorable Mention

Good arrangement of wood, The forest looks mystic. little more perspective could have been created if bit thinner wood was for the background. The back ground plants need some more trimming.

This is not one of my favorites style, but was very well executed. The second photo viewing a lake behind the forest is amazing, congratulations!

Luca Galarraga

Good forest look. Very natural looking. Great foreground. Some of the knots on the trees are a little bit. Great depth. Wonder about the long term viability of the small twigs. Maintaining the Ceratopteris thalictroides at that size will difficult.
