Very interesting and dynamic layout.
Well-positioned details and great aesthetic care. Good variety of plants and good use of shade.
But the biggest sin of this work was the timing and pruning techniques.
If the carpet were more natural with a mix of other plants it would be perfect. The pruning unfortunately was done very close to the date of the photo perhaps another week to give it a less artificial appearance.
There was also a lack of technique to hide the dividing line on the sides of the glass and to prune the stem plants which were too close to the water level.
But it is still an exquisite work! Just pay attention to these small details next time and we will certainly see it in the highest places on the podium.

A stunning and meticulously crafted artwork that showcases considerable effort in planning and maintaining each individual aquatic plant. Particularly the style of the background aquatic plants demonstrates the artist's excellent sensibility. The intricate detail achieved using the flat gravel might serve as a great reference for other aquascapers. While the condition of the moss in the central area might seem slightly lacking it doesn't appear to be a significant issue in the overall impression. Thank you for sharing this wonderful artwork and congratulations.
