Honorable Mention

Lovely planting, and your choice of rock material is good. I like the use of the same type of smaller stones in the foreground to carry the theme through. Unfortunately, your largest, most central stone casts a deep black shadow which leads the viewer's eye right out of the tank. A placement more to the left, or a different shaped stone that didn't cast such a deep shadow might have helped.

The photograph creates a illusion of two ellipse with the surface reflection. Pictures taken from front centered without zoom look more stunning.

The hardscape is well chosen, the use of shadows is very positive, and the overall balance is very natural ... even the fishes are in the best position for the photo! Congratulations!

Luca Galarraga

Very nice rock composition.
