needs more substrate around left side to hide the stacked rock joint. i like the height a lot. also may want to think about introducing something in the foreground on the right side like a low growing crypt. starting to come together well in the sketch, nice work.

Thank you, I'll try to add more substrate regarding your idea about the substrate, thanks. And is this what you were mentioned before?

What about moving the stone more to one side. Rule of thirds. Raise the stones with substrate to be on top of a hill. Then, maybe a white sand path between the stones.

I like the simplicity of the hardscape, I can pitcure a nice green carpet in the foreground.

Random info, if you invert the colors in the pic in the link, the black portion on top has a hidden image as does the lower portion....not just zoomed in but an actual different photo. You can tell by the direction/position of the rasboras in the top one, and the slender fish in the bottom one.
