Just my thoughts

Super journal so far mate. Well done!
Personally, when I'm using rocks I try to make them look as natural as possible. Like they're coming out of the ground and they've been there for thousands of years. This is what nature teaches us, but it's not a rule that you have to follow, of course.
However, with this in mind, I consider the left hand large rock to be a little unnatural looking and at odds with the more natural rocks to the right.
The profile of the left rock does not seem to balance well with others. Do you see what I mean?
You could try and move the large rock around i.e. turn it upside down, back to front etc. etc. Try all conceivable angles.
The largest rock is the most important in Iwagumi, so it's worth spending some time (I know you done so already - sorry!) to get it right.
The the smaller rocks will follow.
I hope that helps and hasn't put too much of a downer on things. If you want to go for a truly original Iwagumi then stick with what you've got.
Keep up the good work!
