While the triangle composition is simple and low-profile there is still a lot of dynamic range in height and texture within the plants. Even with the mature plant growth you've kept a pleasing amount of the hardscape exposed.

I think that the dynamic range of the hardscape could be pushed even further with some smaller stones and pebbles in the foreground. I also think the Myriophyllum in the center could be a little less um central. That taller plant could become a lovely counter balance to the the wood on the left if moved slightly to the right. Lastly the stone closest to the glass in the front becomes a focal point because of how flat and rectangular it is. A shorter stone there might allow the eye to move more freely into the layout.

Love the mix of mosses and plants including pop of red color. Flowering is a good sign of high plant health! Good shoreline emphasis and balance of water and above water areas

This is a really beautiful crisp clean display! I could wish to see some plants besides just the moss in the water area but that is not a strict requirement for this category.
