Very interesting layout with good dynamism.
Although the photo is underexposed the plants look healthy especially the Rotalas.
The scale is very good and the lines of force are harmoniously oriented. The reflexes could be better and more worked on. However the factor that disappoints and takes points from this assembly is the presence of a large amount of algae. It is definitely a failure that should not be presented to the judges.
We hope for a healthier algae-free aquarium in the next edition because you have a lot of technique and skills.
See you next year keep scaping!

This artwork makes skillful use of stone texture appearing to have a concept similar to Luis Carlos' 2020 piece. Although the algae present on the rocks might be a bit disappointing the aquatic plants look healthy and are well arranged. The composition of the foreground aquatic plants is excellent contributing to an overall dense tension. The artist seems to understand how to utilize the texture of the rocks well. Thank you for this wonderful artwork and congratulations.
