Disqualified due to illegal image manipulation.
Path and perspective work are delightful. An enjoyable aquascape as a whole. Planting on the pathway is great planting on the wood is weak by comparison. Plant conditions could be better overall.

This layout impressed me a lot!!! I loved the convergence that the picture induces our view to make a practically obligatory path following the course of the river. The blanked space was well used in a perfect position. The Bucephalandras and Anubias in the driftwoods could be better positioned. It looks like messy and disordered. The rocks at the left side of the rivers are almost perfect with good and strong shadows but unfortunately the rocks inside the river don't. Perhaps it might have been better if more different plants were used on the lawn. This layout is a good example that driftwood do not always need to have mosses tied to them. This layout makes me want to dive and stroll through it.
