A beautiful work with beautiful swing attractive colors and interesting use of space.
Unfortunately much of the moss appears to have suffered the yellowish-brown tones make the layout look a bit unhealthy.
Nice work - congratulations!

Great aquascape!
Nice movement and textures... good shadows too. But I question the need for so many trunks... I don't know if they are necessary to accentuate the perspective and flow...
The thin driftwood at the right side at the top are definitely no necessary because even in the reflex they aren't harmonic.
The driftwood in the middle of the skyline are too thick and take off the lightness of the entire layout.
Small tip: When you finish the hardscape phase try to look your layout and think about what you can take off the aquarium. What is too much??? Almost every time we take off some material okay?
Nice job keep focused congrats!!!

Very special and well executed. Just a better proportion of driftwood from front to back is what this tank needs for best placement.
