#628: 80.9L Aquatic Garden mother's forest 2

SeungJin Choi Seoul, South Korea


A classical forest layout!
A simple perspective line that worked very well. Good sense of depth and natural atmosphere.
Some points to improve:
1. Front alignment. The two trees in the foreground are exactly aligned that causes a flattened sense.
2. Use more plants with rounded leaves and a medium size in front of the two big trees to give the impression of proximity.
3. Improve the plant density mostly in the stem plants in background.
4. Work the reflections better on both sides.
5. Don't leave the substrate so high along the front glass because It reduces your "painting canvas". The thicker and taller the substrate the less space to show your art.
6. Balance the intensity of shadows throughout the aquarium.
Very good job. Keep aquascaping.
