The lines in this scape are really nice and create a great sense of depth. The colors are brilliant without going too far over the edge. Nice work!
— Kris Weinhold
Outstanding job!!! Starting with the title that perfectly expresses the feeling of the work. It is possible to see hear and mainly feel the whisper of the shadows through the grooves of the rocks that have been delicately and patiently sculpted by the touch of time.
The delicate and harmonious colors of the plants were very well chosen and applied in an almost perfect position throughout the aquarium creating attention and why not say tension in the desired places. They invite our eyes to walk through the entire aquarium searching for details and points of attention.
The work of reflections especially on the sides is exquisite and the delicacy with which the surface tension of the water is broken corroborates even more with the poetry of the work.
The hardscape's hardness power and aggressiveness were summarily tamed by the delicacy of the plants and the contrasts of light and dark that delicately sculpted the flow of life in this work.
In conclusion it is not a fake job done only for a contest ... it is true and represents in its extension all the technique and understanding of the author in contemplating Nature and especially the importance of Nature in the life of the human being.

Congratulations jobs like this make our lives better.

This aquarium is a masterpiece. It combines the power of its structure with magical lines that allow us to feel the flow. Despite its impact and speed the plant is the protagonist at all times and takes this aquarium to the highest levels. In my opinion an aquarium that can be considered a candidate for "Best of show".
