Your inspiration photo is similar to several terrific scapes that were in the top 200 IPALC this year. Use smaller plants behind and even tree shaped stem plants in front like #93.

If you want the scape to reflect the photo then the large rocks would be the mountains and you would have rolling hills of a larger scale ground cover in front and smaller to the rear. #134 might be the sort of thing you are looking.

I do like your current groupings though. What happens if you scoot the central group to the right a bit so it is better associated with the right hand group? The right hand group in front might be a bit larger than necessary too or perhaps the left hand group is a bit short. Depends on the height of the tank which way to go, right?
