I like the first pic better. I'd add more rock in the center and call it a day. Something about the first pic just works.

The second pic, is that fake driftwood? Maybe that's why, the first pic just looks more natural to my eyes.

I personally like the first one more but I was getting tired of it so I wanted to make it a lot different. Next time I'll probably make it like the first one again with more rocks and make it like a biotope
