Second Place
An aggressive build with dragon stones.
The stones meet in the center exactly in the middle of the picture. Normally this would be a criticism but here it fits quite well. The structure of the stones is so varied that this extreme symmetry is not negatively noticeable. The use of the reflection side glasses has also worked well and helps to shift the center.
An extraordinarily successful planting ensures a beautiful color palette and mood.
Congratulations for me this layout is the best in the 28 - 55 liter category!

Impressive hardscape with powerful layout!
So simple and so beautiful.
The layout gets our attention because the power lines are so well distributed. Good shadows details and perspective. The reflections are okay but could be a little bit better mainly on the right side.
The dynamism presented in the foreground is very important to give a good perspective and depth to the entire layout.
The only point that bothers me a little is the symmetry between the two main elements... they are too similar and at the same height a fact that reduces the importance of the main formation on the right.
But anyway it is a awesome job that deserves my applause!!!
Congratulations you rock!!!

Very dynamic and powerful aquascape. The plant balance is almost perfect. Nice atmosphere details are the best... nothing to say!

You are not alone this year in not paying attention to your reflections! While your rock work is quite strong your reflections really let you down especially on the right side. You MUST fill the tank and check this before finalizing your hardscape. Otherwise this is a beautifully done tank.

The stonework in this scape is incredibly strong and effective. Fish choice and positioning in the photo are great and I honestly have nothing bad to say about this one. Well done!
