Ok, just to make it absolutely clear where this layout came from:
What those photos are seeing is in green here:
Roughly. The little teal dots are about where the people are standing.
I think the perspective angle on the top shot is really rotated a bit counter-clockwise. Look at the chair at the navigator position. On top of that, your green cone of vision doesn't grab the environmental station like the top picture does. I think the right boundary of your cone of vision should be perfectly vertical in your picture, grabbing both the navigator and helm chairs equally and the environmental station should be where the turbolift is in your picture. Therefore, I think that the turbolift is closer to the TOS position than your picture makes it out to be.
I agree with Eric Cheung about having less stations, too.
