Re: aquascape competition
>>Converging lines creating "depth"--especially in Dutch Aquariums.
Height in plane (taller seems further)--again Dutch Aq.
(though traditional in Japanese scroll paintings)
Composing with negative space--Amano's carefully sparse setups.
Composing along golden sections or thirds--everyone since Greeks.
Contrasts of all kinds: color, number, height, texture, etc.
Lines of plants or borders between species creating patterns or
movement, not necessarily perpective. (Overlooked?) <<
Great ideas! Different classifications for the contest?
>>1. Since the AGA and the APD are international it would be great to include everyone who wishes to participate and/or collaborate<<
I agree, anyone who can submit a photo, what either digital or negative?
>>2. For the education of everyone it would be useful to publish all the submissions and a little description and plan of the aquarium layout and plants contained<<
I definetly agree it would be far more interesting to post everybodys pictures, rather than just the winners. You could even goes as far as having different size aquarium classifications, and a separate contest for children under a certain age.
