The silver prize winner is from Vietnam, and the creator made a good arrangement of rocks and stemmed plants. The rocks are all in same texture, and unique, which make a good ambience in the layout. Stemmed plant trimming technique is also notable. However, we could not see much natural feeling in the layout, as all the elements were meticulously created, and the whiteness of cosmetic sand in the central part seems a bit artificial. The fish also does not match the layout. All these points may have downgraded assessment of this layout.
