Renan Selingardi do Amaral SÃO PAULO, Brazil

Awards and Comments

First Place
Pathway and archway are very well done. Composition and placement of rocks give good sense of movement to the aquascape.
— Dennis Wong
What an incredible aquarium! Its colors and crystallinity stand out! I loved the reflexes and the work with plants especially on rocks. The ratio is perfect. What I criticize is that both sides of the layout have the same weight which makes the layout solid and very flattened. Maybe if the left side had a less prominent priority the layout would flow better. I also found that the foreground was very tight close to the glass. More space could make me "breathe" better. The photography technique and the lens used valued the work. Congratulations beautiful aquarium !!!
