#47: 66L Aquatic Garden Totem poles of peace Ver. 1

Yau Che Kiu Chai Wan, China


An interesting idea but I like an aquascape to stand on its own not be dependent on a photo suspended behind it. Your hardscape is interesting but the groundcover on the right needs to fill in and the Pogostemon helferi looks a little lost.
— Karen Randall
A bold attempt with the backgrounds but I don't think it worked in your favor. A bit of play with the elevations would have helped on your totem pole theme.
