Awards and Comments

First Place
Beautiful work love the vanishing point with it's bright contrast against the dark shades in foreground. I think the foreground could be improved it looks a bit flat. Congratulations!

The use of shadows in aquascaping has always been emphasized. This artwork daringly positions representative shadows creating a tension not commonly experienced in other pieces. The artist skillfully generates a strong impact through gentle lines offering many lessons to learn from. The brown-toned substrate visible in the foreground adds vibrancy to a composition predominantly in green hues. Although perspective may not always be considered crucial nowadays as seen in this artwork it remains an incredibly effective method for expressing depth. The bold reduction behind the vanishing point to a white background also adds tension elevating the quality of the artwork. Thank you for this fantastic piece and congratulations.

Very impressive layout!
Proportions and positioning of the hardscape are very harmonious.
Perspective and well-defined lines of force with very impactful shadow work.
Be careful with the parallel line with the front glass it flattens the layout and leaves foreground monotonous.
Great job!! Congrats!
