Awards and Comments


Disqualified due to illegal image manipulation.
Great amount of technical details are piled into this aquascape. Aquascaper demonstrates a high degree of skill at handscape construction. However the regular distribution of wood work and rock (on the river path) paired with laser straight composition lines gives the aquascape a very artificial feel.
— Dennis Wong
Very intricate work. Amazing job!

Additional Information In this submerged river I am trying to capture a piece of the affluent Xingú. An underwater landscape with roots of large trees entering the water and creating shadows between the rocks giving security to the fish. I give color to the birth of the affluent, emphasizing the remoteness of this.
