Default Hardscape layout

Hey guys, my 5 gallon tank is in need of a rescape and I found these cool rocks down by the river that I want to use for it (all tested and everything is fine). I have narrowed it down to 4 hardscapes but I was hoping that some people who are a bit stronger at hardscape layouts, or anyone really, could help me choose which one looks best. Let me know if I should change anything on them as well! I'm thinking the substrate will be very sloped so the bigger rocks will most likely be at least partially under it.

if u have plants i think number 3 would be the best since the rocks are more up right and so you would be able to see the top of the smaller rocks coming up from above the carpet or moss or w/e ur going to use.

if there is nothing goign to cover those rocks, i like 4

Yes, there will be plants. I'm thinking mainly HC in the front with something like pygmy chain sword in the back
