Third Place

Very impressive hardscape with tremendous feeling of depth. You made a good choice replacing your original very straight "foreground trees" with the more gnarled version you ended up with. This took my breath away! Bravo!

Karen Randall

Very original and creative layout. The perspective is excellent, and the aquascaper arrange the harsdcape skilfully. The only negative point is the use of a mountain background poster. In my opinion, all the elements to represent an aquascape must be inside the display. Congratulations for your work!
