Anyone ever have an unexpected scape happen?

Sounds strange I know. I have a (not really sure of the volume but think it's a 20L) tank in the basement that I set up originally as a QT/extra tank for my L-183 fry when they came along. Last night I was pulling plants from other tanks and putting them in there and instead of just tossing them in like usual I decided to put them in the substrate in a fairly organized fashion. What resulted surprised me because I actually like the way it looks.

So if you have ever had this happen to you please share some pics!

looks good!! my current scape kind of came as an accident, i was trying to scape it, but then it turned out totally different/better than i was originally going for. lol id post pics, but its experiencing algae right now, but i dont have money to get ferts and metricide right now ( a new computer needs to be bought :[ ) not the best looking thing ATM

i think that if you stood some of the driftwood up in the left corner, so the movement is pointing to the right of the tank ( make sense? its hard to explain with words )

Last week I put eco complete into my new 20g and filled it up with water using a bucket. The water moved all the EC around into a bunch of hills and valleys and I looked at it and almost thought of just leaving it like that. Instead I moved everything around and I'm not really sure it looks better this way but I've already planted it so its too late.
