I really love this. It's very pretty. I feel like I could take a walk here. What kind of twigs did you use?

I think it's a bit too bright and high contrast, but those are photo problems and not scape problems lol. Very nice! i love it!

nice, would look even nicer if you add tree shape wood on top of both sides and add moss on them.

Very nice scape, I really like the contrast between the sand and the rocks. What kind of sand did you use?

On holiday.

Very cool looking scape. I love it. Kind of reminds me of some of the central coast of California.

I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure.
