Clever, putting it next to a mirror to get twice the effect. I'll have to remember that! (and who can go wrong with a Body Glove sticker? lol)
I'm too much of a noob to contribute much, but I'd like to say that is a really nice piece of driftwood you have, the arch in it lends nice visual movement. I also like the open areas in the center with the rocks & plants to the ends of the driftwood. To me, having the weight of the tank near the ends & having an open center is balanced & pleasing.

What kind of snake do you have? Is it a native Australian species? (I love snakes)
