Awards and Comments

Second Place
For me this work had the strongest impact in the 300+ liter class.
It has a very unusual bold construction.
Although the vanishing point is not on the focal axes it has an impressive depth largely created by the daring texture of the driftwood projecting backwards. This structure has to be criticized because it looks very artificial but I think this structure has a great effect. It's very dynamic almost hypnotic.
Despite this dynamic I find it difficult to see a wave here.
Together with the beautiful and balanced color scheme a very exciting impression was created.
A magnificent job congratulations!

Interesting and different aquascape. Nice use of wood and stones. The higher plateau at the right gives a great and strong sense of depth. The wood placed like a crown remind me some Moais or Stonehenge.
Powerful force-lines and dark shadows mark the evident flow of this layout. Maybe the shadows are too dark in some parts.
It is a wide layout with good details perspective textures and inusitate design.
Congratulations for courage and talent!
You have my respect!

One of the best if not the best Brazilian style works of the year. I love the strong view of this tank with huge dynamism and a perfect balance between plants and hardscape. This tank with a better vanishing area connecting those single driftwood pieces will be a winning tank for my taste. Congratulations.
