Awards and Judge Comments

The color in this aquascape is almost overwhelming. The saturation makes the rocks and plants look too red, and distracts from the color balance overall. I like the mound that you've created and think it was composed well.

Kris Weinhold

Your aquascape has some very nice points, but the over-saturation of the photo makes it hard to appreciate it. Be careful of this as you process your photos!

Karen Randall

Wow! What an explosion of colors and texture. Nice use of hardscaping to create the backbone of the aquascape, although I'm not too keen on the use of the red rock. I think you would have been better served using a darker stone. The plants are expertly integrated and the use of the Eleocharis lends texture to the back of the tank nicely. Great job!
