Only things I can think of is straighten out the substrate line at the front of the tank, and try to use an odd number of rocks so it doesn't look too symmetrical.

The rocks are your preference, but I think it's a good looking scape so far.

More slope. Like 2" more in the back. Level out the front. Maybe play around with the 2 front center stones a little.

Ok I added a 4th layout which I think I like the best, so if theres anything I can adjust to this one let me know..

I took a side shot so you can see the depth of the substrate, is there such thing as too high ? lol
