    First Photo.
    It looks very central and if any thing the L&R end seem to balance each other making it not very interesting.

    Second Photo
    Please tell me you are not serious eight rocks in a row with one large rock at the back.

    Third Photo.
    Now you are getting somewhere. The DW leads you to the main feature rock VG.
    Three rocks LH good but too evenly spaced.
    Three rocks RH good but the centre rock could be moved towards the front RH corner.

    A few things for you to think about.

    One excellent reason for taking it slowly, you get one idea and think its perfect and keep going but if you waited a little I guarantee two days later you will have a totally different approach.

    One point many forget once its set up to the best you can do with the materials you have other than a little tweaking occasionally you could leave it set up for a very long time.

    thanks Keith, the 2nd with the rocks in a row was to have a kinda cliff faced idea with a beach effect at the front.

    The last one though is my favourite and I'll work on those points you've highlighted.

    It is very similar. Not sure which I like best, but the finished product will be one of these two in some form.

    I'm about two weeks out now from starting so a decision will have to be made soon.

    Both have good possibilities.
    First photo, rocks RH side four in a lovely well planned curve.
    LH end three rocks just don't work together.

    Second photo, rocks under DW perfect do not change.
    Rocks LH side the centre rock try moving it forward or back so its not in a three rock row.

    The way you are proceeding I can see the end is very close.

    That is a very interesting Aquascape.
