Awesome job and very interesting inspiration.
"The Seven Sacred Pools" in Haleakala National Park is really amazing. I have never been there but believe me it is on my "wishlist". Someday I will visit.
Well dude you made it! Very good interpretation of that place.
The central portion of the layout is almost perfect. The pools are good represented discreetly subtly and make your work become very interesting and arouse curiosity.
Most of the bushes are very good but unfortunately near the side glasses they lose their shape and become a spot of shadows and messy plants. A better pruning was required.
I understand the desire to not prioritize the sides in order to give emphasis to the central portion of the layout but take care with big shadow areas because they can depreciate your job overall.
My two last comments: Maybe the shoal could be in better arrangement and the foreground could be less aligned with the front glass okay?
Very good job and great interpretation. Thank you for sharing a good work like this with us.
Congratulations. ALOHA!
