Second Place
Very unusual work in aquascaping contest presently where one is easy to note another interpretation of the forest. I liked the rereading of the environment in a very natural and almost poetic way. The work of Mosses was quite natural and the proportions are quite balanced. As a point of improvement I just highlight the visual quality of the larger rock on the left side of the layout; the very dark trunk on the right side and the lack of plant densification on the back of the layout.
Very good to see this kind of job. Congratulations.

Wonderful natural feeling. Wish more work had done at the vanishing point along the path as it ends abruptly. Exceptional work!
— Jeff Miotke
This aquascape is very well composed to give a sense of naturalism to the scene. No element stands out outlandishly. Planting seems patchy in some places but it works in this case to express the disruption caused when the trees fell. The overall expression of the idea is excellent.

I like this tank. It uses elements that we’ve certainly seen before. But the “ravine” with the “fallen trees” Is new and beautifully done. The perspective is also very good.
