IAPLC 2011 World Ranking 4 ‘Alongside’

World Ranking No.4
Aquascaper: Cliff Hui
Country: HONG KONG
Aquascape Title: Alongside
Size: W120 x D45 x H50 (cm)

The second silver winner is from Hong Kong, and his layout gives a good impression of natural feeling and perspective. He combined both stones and driftwood, and expressed a natural feeling by attaching several species of moss on those layout materials, and emphasized perspectives by spreading cosmetic sand from open space in the center toward the backside. The use of driftwood looking like a rustic bridge over the valley draws attention of viewers. These techniques are nothing new, but the level of expression was very high, and it received high evaluation from judges.
