Help with Firstime Hardscape

Hi All,

Im in the process of setting up my first planted tank (journal to come) and have started in on the hardscape. im a huge fan of minimalism so its going to be very close to an iwagumi style.

Here is what i've gotten so far (i apologize for the picture quality im still pretty new with a camera), i really like the flow and the way the rocks flow is very similar to how i found them when i pulled them out of the ground.

The more i look the more it feels like i have alot of unutilized space. i was thinking of maybe adding a piece of wood with a lot of branches to come out of the peak of rock on the left and branch into the open space on the right. also i was thinking about doing some more rock work on the left, or maybe adding a significant amount of dirt to the right and highlight a change of height.

Can anyone with more experience with this aspect possibly help me out?
