Help with 1st scape NEW PIC

I have a couple of questions.
1st - Is the piece of driftwood too large? It looks a little out of balance to me
2nd - Does the rock pile need to be moved forward some?
Any suggestions are appreciated. I have plants floating right now that will be planted tomorrow.

Post a picture of the entire tank, the whole aquascape; this one seems a bit too close-up, so it's hard for me to give good advice!

I agree.. a full tank shot from a little further back would help.

its hard to see. its just splotches of color. (are you using your phone camera?)

of what i do see is that your stem plants are not all in the back as they should be. most aquascapes are generally sorted by size, leaf size, and color. a slope is made by putting the tallest in the front, and gradually geting smaller towards the front (not a perfect slope of 1 though). plants with thin/small leaves go in the middle, plants with broad leaves go to the left or right. red plants should not be in the center.
