Dynamic fast and in movement... these words define this beautiful work. One of the few jobs where the choice and positioning of fish enhances the dynamism and flow of work!
Very good lateral reflections good spatial awareness and perfect shadows!
Very healthy and well-positioned plants which only demand attention when they are artificially placed in rock crevices sometimes obvious and unnatural.
Another factor that can be considered is the scale of the hardscape in proportion to the size of the display which in my opinion is cramped. Who knows in a 150cm or 180cm tank this hardscape would fit like a glove?
A last suggestion would be in this case the total closure of the horizon by the Rotalas. The opening and luminosity in the upper left portion competes drastically with the focal point which is located in the opening beneath the rocks.
In conclusion a lot of technique detail and soul in this artwork.
My sincere congratulations you have skills!

The dynamic high-speed linear structure induces a sense of dynamism in the viewer. This artwork adeptly harnesses that effect and is successfully executed. Similar to a singer who effortlessly hits high notes this artist creates a significant impact through serene plant control. It may seem easy but it's not something anyone can achieve and for that I deeply admire the artist behind this piece. Thank you for this fantastic artwork and congratulations.
