The waterfall is well done as are the moss trees. The rest of the plantings appear a bit haphazard with perhaps too many species but overall this is a nice scape.
— Kris Weinhold
This is a great diorama scape. I can see how full of details it is and the great efforts made by the author.
This aquarium would be even more spectacular if each of the layers of the structure were more defined. I observe a set full of details but my eyes need rest areas (more neutral space).
— Juan Puchades
Very flashy and interesting work. The profusion of details and several constructive elements of the layout enchant and draw the attention of the observer at the first sight.
Well-developed bushes lots of variety and quantity of plants with lots of texture and shadows.
However it is a good diorama-style work which well represents a scenario fictional or not but which as an artistic composition often leaves something to be desired.
We have many elements to look at and they are all almost on the same plane at the same time. Hills trees waterfalls river ... This means that there are no priorities between them and they all mix together. More definition and priority between them would be needed. And finally I miss more empty spaces to rest my gaze.
Anyway congratulations for the beautiful work very well !!!
