However the notorious alignment of the hardscape in the mid-plane gives an impression of a unique wall. This increases the impression of few layers which leaves the work without depth.
The work of making the bushes dense was very well done but the unnatural pruning drawing too much of the contours of the clumps gave an artificial look. Another point that deserves attention is the work with the plants in the corners of the foreground. They are messy and look like they've been neglected.
Despite the shadows being present I don't know if it was the photo technique used or if the right block of the layout is really too dark hiding many details that could positively harmonize the overall look of the work.
Everything is going the right way but needs more practice and mostly contemplate more of Nature in order to reproduce Nature.
