Awards and Comments

Second Place
Just beautiful! I wonder however if it might be almost TOO clean. Might a bit of leaf litter make it a bit more accurate?
— Karen Randall
Beautiful but a bit "lifeless".
— Hans-Georg Evers
Very nicely designed and representation of roots lining the banks along a river. The fish look healthy and ready for their next meal! Excellent biotope!
