Likewise, for same reasons as earlier comments, it spreads out and enlarges the space.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I like #2 the best, assuming it will over time become heavily planted. But I like more driftwood, so maybe using all three but different placement than in #6. Like maybe if the one on the right was facing up or something.

I like the idea of running different ideas past people. I'm going to do that next time, too.

edit: just saw the last page...oops! #13 looks like a karate match : )

11, 9, 8. Lol Steph. #10 looks like the death blow.

Amano urges not to lean rocks or driftwood against the walls of your tank. The glass walls are sort of an artificial boundary so leaning things against them draws attention to the fact that you're looking at a glass box full of stuff, rather than at the stuff itself. I agree with this sentiment and therefore don't like the setups where you're doing this. I still think 6 is my favorite.
