#367: 270L Aquatic Garden Shade Tree

Selçuk DURMAZ Malatya, Turkey


The middle part of your scape is very strong. But the shadows are SO deep on both sides that it detracts from the scape in these areas. Now in real life it may be possible to see into these areas and it may not be completely blocked up like this. If that is the case you should consider better lighting when you take your photos. But I feel like there is more here than you are showing us!!!

This artwork is one of the most sophisticated and fantastic pieces I've seen this year. The abstract arrangement of the driftwood offers us much to learn from. Often in an attempt to create impactful structures we tend to use excessive design occasionally resulting in a rigid feel in the artwork. However this piece beautifully employs the unique qualities of the driftwood as if the artist and the material were in perfect harmony. The selection and placement of the aquatic plants are excellent but they seem to require a bit more time to develop.
The boldness in displaying the natural appearance of the hardscape in the background cliff section aligns well with current trends. It's a remarkably elegant piece aesthetically. I'm truly grateful for sharing this wonderful artwork.
