James, the tank continues to dazzle! One thing I would do before submitting photos, however, is to prune the plants to make the 'skyline' less jagged and give it a better flow from one end to the other. I think the driftwood already does a fine job of providing a craggy element to the aquascape, and in fact having smoother lines created by the plants would further accentuate the jagged wood pieces.
Another thing I would do is a day or two before photographing the final tank pictures (if the above aren't them) is position your lighting forward (if possible) so that the crowns of the plants face forward. This will give them a bushier, healthier appearance. Just some suggestions. Best of luck in the contest!
