If only the foreground was flat on number one otherwise that would have gotten my vote.

A toss up between 2 and 4. Went with 4 but would have gone with 2 if the rocks were higher and more pronounced.

Number 2 by a mile, with the right planting as Steve suggests.

2 for me, i can't image the others looking good once planted.

I like this idea of encouraging the public to take part - did many give it a go? Nice to see the different ideas people have using the same equipment too!

What substrate is that?
I like option 1 myself as I really like some of the Iwagumi tanks ive seen which have a slight hill or mound effect in the substrate. Like this one by a guy called Pinheiro Manso it's amazing.
