Wow, there is a lot going on in this aquascape. The path underneath, and the arch above, with the Rotala trimmed into the line of moss/wood is intriguing. This seems like something that could not remain viably maintained for a very long time at all though.
— Kris Weinhold
Very impactful and detailed work. Its colors captivate the eyes and the countless textures hold the viewer's attention.
Perspective is well worked, despite not using traditional methods of vectors or lines that refer to the background. It is easy to see that the right side is closer to the observer than the left side.
The shadows were very well used and placed, as they take attention away from the sides of the layout, giving even more importance to the middle of the layout and highlighting the path and the most lit areas.
However, despite being an excellent job, I believe that some details should be mentioned. The frontal plane is very aligned and straight, which gives monotony and a feeling of flatness. The profusion of details in certain areas gets to be too much, confusing the observer. And lastly, I missed more empty spaces on the horizon.
Congratulations on the beautiful and impressive work. Aquariums like this that inspire us and keep us connected with nature!
