OK you need to bring everything together. You have 3 elements (wood, rock, substrate) that are just kinda there and not working together. Take the rocks out and use one of the big ones to push the substrate toward the base of the wood. Once you do that the rock should be partially buried by the substrate and at the same time it will keep the slope (do you follow?) than try the same method with some more rocks around the main area and further away.
Ha i will try again. What about wood place ment, before i start other again.

To me it looks like the wood should be alittle to the right. Looks a little too centered right now. Word of caution. Are you capping soil? If you push the substrate it might get messy so be careful. Whenever I do substrate moving with water already in the tank I go slow and have a 1/2" filter hose ready and suck out any cloud that develops.
The original reason I started putting rocks into my tank was to separate foreground from background and I was amazed at how great it looked and each time I redid the tank I added more and larger rocks.
How about using your rocks in an informal line and putting more substrate behind? Put some rocks on top of one another and leave spaces as the rocks peter out to the left and use some to support the nice wood piece or even save some to make a small mound on the left. The niches between the rocks make for good spots to plant stuff and it organized the plantings so they made sense.
That nice wood looks amazing moved back and to the right, what a difference! Since it is the largest bit of hard scape it would look nice with its highest point at somewhere between the golden mean point [2/5] and 1/3.
So I have a lot of plants that will be in this morning via UPS and need to figure this hardscape out, plus I have about 15 people that will be in for the holidays starting Friday and starting to get glare from my wife to get it sorted out and cleaned up, your making a mess of my living room. ha ha
What's important is that you and the wife like it.
So do we get a pic w/ the plants?
Well as much as I am thankful for everyone advise, wife has had it with tank and on going time I spend on it. It just not worth the fight anymore. Was told I need to get rid of it, since I won't have it ready to go in the morning. So now I am in the process of taking it all down. Kinda sad about it.
Maybe I can collect stamps as a new hobby, that should be fun...
