#83: 180L Aquatic Garden Swan

Massimo Faberi Villanuova sul Clisi, Italy


I'm not bigon topiary but if you are going to do it it needs to look enough like the subject matter tha we don't need to have the shape pointed out to us graphically. Unfortuantely while the plants in this tank look healthy and well cared for the layout doesn't stand on it's own and atleast to me it certainly doesn't look much like a swan either. I'm sure it was a fun experiment but I'm betting you have the skills to put together a better balanced more attractive layout.

This is different and the compositionis worked around the designers idea. My only comment is the regarding the foreground I am sure if it was just a little short the roots of the stem plants as well as the moss where trimmed better for the sake of the picture the swan will look even better!
