Wow what a great composition !!
A very well planned and executed hardscape work. Very nice and harmonious proportions with strong and well positioned shadows.
Even though I know they might be part of the project I don't think so many openings between hardscape are interesting. as I see it they distract the viewer greatly and still take weight off the main focus in the empty amano.
Another detail that could earn many points in this layout would be the more careful work with the four corners of the layout. Master Amano always said that we should never neglect the corners of the work. Note that some plants appear to be placed just to plug holes or are cluttered.
I also advise but beware of the look of the gravel glued to the front glass which denotes a lack of care and cleanliness.
And finally the last detail would be with respect to the path at the front of the layout. I see many elements that interfere with the fluidity of the path ... I imagine a lighter area in this region with less elements more prominently just to counteract the Amano's empty space on the surface and further harmonize this brilliant work.
Sorry if I meticulosly criticize your work do not misunderstand me but masterpieces such as these deserve more care refinement and affection on the part of the jury. It is always reciprocal the more you offer us the more we delight and return in the form of criticism and remarks.
Really congratulations definitely a great job.
It is a great pleasure and a great honor for me to have this opportunity to evaluate such a terrific job.
