Very nice hillscape! I've seen dunes/hills that look similar to this on volcanic formed islands so I can see the inspiration. Nice work!

This layout divides my opinions.
On the one hand it is a work full of details well executed techniques the use of many plants textures and shadows.
On the other hand the general composition is very simple and definitely the health of the plants is not at its best. it is possible to see algae and spots that could be cleaned before the final photo.
One point that bothers me a lot is the black spot on the front glass on the right side which is totally unnecessary.
In short it is clear that there is a lot of knowledge and technique involved in this layout but there was a lack of greater care with the composition as a whole and careful and dedicated maintenance.
Beautiful work that with few changes and more dedication would be much better ranked.

In this aquarium I can confess to its author that no element in itself was of extreme impact to me. However once I analyzed the work in detail I was able to find an endless number of well-used techniques a harmonious and balanced structure a wonderful photography and endless details in the planting that made me fall in love. Therefore I consider this aquarium one of the best without a doubt in the category.
