    what caught my attention is you are using two kinds of rocks and it is noticesably clear.
    the main rocks shape, for me, not attractive.

    bits and pieces of stones scattered is quite perfect.

    if it is my rock,..... i will hammer or break the upper portion
    whether left or right part to make the shape more interesting.

    the way i look at it, you have two focal point......off center right[main FP] and off center left.
    that's how i look at it. just my personal opiniion.

    I would have gone for even more plants. But I must admit it looks quite simple and beautiful that way.

    I fully agree the first Aquascape was good but could be improved.

    The second is a massive improvement.

    Can I suggest these few simple alterations.

    Top of Path make it narrower (to give a greater depth) by continuing the rocks and plants on the LH side.

    Lower that pile of twigs it looks like a big barrier across the Path

    I have extended a few twigs to make it not to look like a neat pile of twigs.

    Along the path scatter a few twigs and the odd bit of planting no set area or pattern as if in nature.

    Very talented scaping. Well done! I really love the rocks, particularly the formation on the RHS. Looks really natural and there are many points of interest. The river of gravel through the middle is very central but has a nice vanishing point that makes it work for the eyes. I agree with Keith that there should be some carry-over of plants and twigs into the river to blend the river scene into the scape in a more natural way. Overall it's really superb! I will keep watching with interest :)

    I love the detailed crossover between sand and "land" -- great work! However a bit flat. Did you think on using a similar branch on the left side? It could look great! But even as it is -- very nice work, congrats!!

    I have the feeling the end is very close now, only a few tweaks her and there then let the tank develop a mind of its own.

    Pathway
    RH side very interesting no straight lines interesting little areas
    LH now that is the opposite one long curve.

    My suggestions X I moved that rock to the right.
    Behind that I took out 2 small stones and added a small plant.
    With the 2 stones see how they look where the X is.

    Over all that should give you a better shape for the LH side

    Re the back of the tank LH side if any thing was added it "might" split the tank into two sides.

    I would hang back and see how the tank develops then all of a sudden you "Might" find the perfect piece that binds it all together.

    That is an unusual photo I would still like to see a front on and a front looking down a little to see the actual depth you have achieved.
    By using a mix of stone shapes and sizes certainly make for a very natural interesting Aquascape.
