Thanks for the opinion guys, I will go home and make some changes and post more up.

two pointers to mention. mock-scapes tend look way different prior to adding substrate so try to keep that in mind. also, make sure you wet or spray those rocks before settling on a scape (if you havn't already), quite surprising what a bit of water can do to change the appearance/color/texture of them, i forgot this step in my recent layout and i ended up with an very unwanted white patch on one stone.
Thanks for the tip, Once I have the hardscape nailed down. I am going to be trying 3 different substrates, not sure how I am going to do that, but the idea will be to simulate the textures and color contrasts.

I washed all the stones and didnt find odd patches as such, but I will mist them and take a look before i finalize it.
