Hi Hung Tran... If you want stones to be received in '(Japanese) suiseki'-style (which might differ from Vietnamese seating), you can subtly improve each of these by following modern daiza-style to include:
(note: The following is not a quote, but the only way I am aware to indent a block of text on the forum.)
1. not extending the daiza far beyond the stone's footprint & grasping the foot closely even if the stone has an overhang (the first stone's seat can be improved in this regard).
2. suggesting the stone's natural bottom continues under the seat (the second stone seat's profile really does this very well!), but some stones will suggest a vertical or expanding foot which requires a more vertical or even modestly convex profile usually supplemented by a closely-grasping, inner wall of equal height & width (think of a squared 'bead' between the stone & daiza lip).
3. Feet of-equal-width placed where the apparent end of a landscape edge reaches the lip of the daiza-- often at the most most extreme edges of the stone where support clarifies stability. Your two middle feet are nicely chosen on your second stone.
4. Assure unequal spacing of feet on the front of the stone unless it is so narrow that partially exposed feet pointing outward on the extreme right & left end of the daiza are sufficient for support.
5. Feet at each end of the daiza should be partially visible on the front of the composition (suiseki & daiza) and partially hidden from the front as they it face outward. This is the only reservation I'd find on your second seat-- it looks very good, otherwise.
I offer these as a student (not as a seasoned carver or scholar) & realize there are many Japanese daiza with other considerations & some very effective variations for particular stones. For example, Mas Nakajima's daiza variations are exquisite, while honoring/extending suiseki daiza origin.

Jesus Quintas noted the daiza-style traditionally chosen for Furuya-ishi stones in his recently released Q-seki book. These daiza follows the style of older (Ming dynasty?) fitted Chinese platforms with cloud feet. He opens my eyes to better expression for landscape stones that are appreciated for Chinese style-- even when collected in Japan!
