    Loved his last scape and i think i still prefer it, but the tree in the new one is 1st class :D IMO the threadfin rainbows are a bit distracting? When i looked it was the first thing my eye was drawn to.

    I reckon the first scape with the new tree would have been awsome ;)

    Syrah is better in my view. More innovative too...

    I prefure his newer one. But im still abit comsi comsa about this style of scape. Its perhaps to fantacy rather than representation. I didnt feel it deserved the 10th place it got last year.
    The new scape is very Bonsai, perhaps thats why I like it more.

    these competitions seem so tied to the personal preferences of the judges..

    all of those top tanks are mind blowing! How on earth can they say one is better than another!?
