#253: 350L Aquatic Garden Amur

Salvador Macias Torres Malaga, Spain


This piece is something I recall seeing in another contest. It felt like meeting an old friend and I enjoyed revisiting it with delight. I sometimes wonder if 'a bit more diversity in the arrangement of aquatic plants' might enhance it but it's undeniably a wonderful artwork that I hesitate to find flaws in.
