I don't know, it looks pretty good to me. IS there something wrong with it? I would add lights if there are none now. Maybe some more plants.

one thing I might change is the shimmer top which looks out of place.

sure we will build it in your back yard. But not untill we take the build a pond day!

I would definitely add more plants to naturalize the setting, other than that it looks great

My only concern is that it looks easy for predators to make a quick snack of those fish.

Only thing I would suggest is filling it in with some more plantings etc.

less stacking of the rock.
less boulders around the edge
try not to mix rock types, and keep the rock used that's natural in your reagion.

It looks good. The only thing I can think to add if you wanted to do something different, would be a small fountain in the center?

I think some large boulders around the falls with one or two placed at different places. More plants to soften up the rocks to give a more natural look..

I think a pond or water feature should look like its been there for years. Just my opinion.........

Looks good....

Maybe a more at random shape. Not just 2 circular ponds.

I don't do ponds...........I'm just stating what I think would look a little better. Plants, plants, plants.
