Very cool, but sort of symmetrical for my taste. I'd move the sharp rock on the right side over to the left and go for a 3 spike almost the way you have the two already on the left and leave one lone little rock on the right almost looks like that sharp right side one would fit perfectly under the left side.

What style are you going for? That will help decide how to place the stones and rocks, there are three main styles, Dutch, Nature and Iwagami, all of them have different aspects as to what make them unique. From the looks of your stones and rocks you could make a nature tank easily, but the way they are places now is too perfect, things don't happen like that in nature and would probably look pretty odd in a planted aquarium. Now there is a freestyle aspect of aquascapeing too, if YOU like something it doesn't matter if anyone else does because YOU will be looking at your aquarium mostly not them!

That's true!
I do like the nature thank. Almost like mini landscapes. That said, I also really like the twisted wood I found.

I would terrace the rocks in one corner like a mountain. Have one of the wood pieces coming out of the bottom third towards the opposite side. Attach anubias, ferns or moss on the wood. Plant small plants in the voids of the rocks. Then on the other side a nice carpet and a few low growing plants. Of course, I like triangle type scapes.
