Re: Critique needed please!efinateut that

You've got it in one! Looks really different, but as said different is good and it has that special something for me. Definatelygets the thumbs up from me.

I don't see a big problem with the wood facing the way it does, it could work but that doesn't mean to say it MIGHT look better if you changed the direction of the left piece to face to the left instead of the right.

its a step in the right direction wayne. the use of dragon stone sure gives a different feel to the layout. much better IMO

IMO the opposing branches could work. amano has done it so many times to good effect. there is tension in the layout but that can be softened with grasses maybe?...aciciualris?

theres no right or wrong ;)

its nice, but to me, it looks a little bit to 'placed', none of the decor is touching, not very natural imo, but it could look nice once the spaces fill out with a nice carpet.

quote="Goodygumdrops"]Nice,similar in a way to this:
viewtopic.php?t=3583
but that may not be such a bad thing as that tank is a cracker.I still liked the last one though.Whatever one you do though I'm sure will be great,as you seem to be creative and eager.[/quote]

Thankyou for your kind comments, If I could emulate that tank I would be extremely pleased because the guy who created that tank is simply a Genius! I intend to use some stems though such as Rotala walachii (spelling) :lol: and Ludwigia arcuata and possibly star grass.

Thanks for your comments

Wayne,

That's so true about the hardscape and becoming hysterical. I find if you just throw something together, without having much of an idea then it works, whereas if you plan it too vigorously then it doesn't turn out as good. Also, if you look at it too much then you end up not liking it so if you think it's good, keep it and don't look at it anymore! :lol:
