I'll venture that the reason you have gotten so much negative feedback on the rock pile is that it doesn't look organic. Only humans stack rocks in that fashion and it's not an arrangement to be...

#4 FTW

It's the best orientation of that piece IMO, the light and dark values create a pleasing depth of field.
