Second Place
A perfect Nature Aquarium!
The driftwood work is very good except for some excess especially in the left side the thinner ones could be discarded.
Another small detail the rightmost bunch of driftwoods could be more connected and more positioned to the left eliminating the large void filled by the Vallisnerias. In my opinion although the aquarium is quite large the logs are a little big for him.
Speaking of rocks they are all misplaced and perhaps the lighter tone of them was not a good choice. They get too much attention and are not natural placed.
The central path is well delimited and strongly emphasizes the notion of depth but has a lot of interference such as gravel leaves and details that confuse the natural aspect with dirt.
And as a last comment I don't think such a wide-angle lens was needed in this layout. She opened the sides too much and did not favor the work especially the side reflexes.
Congratulations what a nice job.
