Drop some info on your tank so people could be of more assistance. CO2? Lighting? Fertilizers? Gallons? water hardness? Looks like a great start!

You are off to a much nicer start than a lot of first-timers here. It looks good, but you really need to balance the right side with more plants. But other than that, it looks good; it just could use a haircut LOL

I think the wood should be on the left side in front of the bush.
