Third Place
An amazing hardscape work and spatial vision.
It is impressive how the layout naturally flows through this ravine and seems to develop endlessly. The highlight of this work is without any doubt the clearing that we find at the end of the route after passing through the imposing portico. This clearing gives even more strength to the work because it is together with the "Empty Amano" positioned in the golden ratio serving in a certain way as a vanishing point or reference for all vectors of the work!
The lines of force and perspective are very strong and are accentuated by the positioning and direction of the fish.
The excellent work on shadows and contrasts is also notable.
As usual works in this style use few types of plants and this one is surprising precisely because it uses more than 10 varieties.
In conclusion it is a beautiful conceptual work and a great example of inspiration for future layouts!
My sincere congratulations!!!

This artwork brings the appearance of the grandeur of nature into the piece. The positioning of the rock overhang that appears small near the vanishing point is meticulously planned showcasing the artist's meticulousness and passion. Throughout our work we often grapple with ourselves. Do we stop at this point or do we push further? This piece displays the depth of the artist's patience. The placement of the plants is perfect completing a stunning landscape. Its magnificence becomes a significant advantage in the contest scoring. I admire the artist's passion and am grateful for presenting such a magnificent piece.
