I love it and am no aquascaper but here is my rough interpretation.

The two islands have similar shapes but the one on the right has the rocks spaced rather than overlapped and the prominent "pointy" rock acts as a focal point which takes away from the stunning left.

Maybe move the rocks on right closer together and angle the "pointy" rock differently so it isn't the main focal point?

Thanks for the feedback! The two rocks are actually touching but there is AS on top of it.

I like it, but I think it might look better if you swap the two large rocks on the right so that the focal point, the tall, pointy rock, is closer to center. It's a super cool scape though. Looks HUGE! I can't believe that's 12 gallons.
I'm glad you like it. I think if I switch it, the large rock might look like a sore thumb. I am realizing that the tall stone doesn't fit. i'm going to replace it. It's going to be pita because the rocks are sitting on the glass and holding up the back soil. But better now then later. Thanks again.

Thanks for the response but Oops... Sorry, I found a better stone and replaced it. I think I'm happier with it. Hopefully I can post the new pictures and start a journal.
