Third Place
This is very nice! You might consider improving it in a couple of ways. First I think you are trying to use the thin pieces of wood to represent roots. But they are not going in the direction that roots would naturally go. (or if they are supposed to be vines the same is true!) Either use larger more impactful pieces of wood or think carefully about the placement of these small ones so that they truly represent what you want the viewer to see.

Below the water you have done a beautiful job creating your path and sandy foreground. It is always a good idea to break this up with smaller stones as you have done. But the small multi-colored rounded pebbles do not work well with the beautiful single tone but nicely textured stone that you have built your land area with. What might have worked better would be to break up some of your larger stone and use that to scatter over your sand area!

You struck a great balance between the land and water section. The plants look healthy and are grown just the right amount in your submission. Well done!

What a stunning paludarium with emphasis placed on the water portion to create streets in the aquascape. The use of the hardscape provides depth to the paludarium and the plants in the terrestrial sections look to be thriving and healthy. Excellent work!
