The left most rock is in line with the larger rock to the right. I'd give a slight counter-clockwise turn to it in order to break up that rigid line and give the scape more depth.

As everyone was suggesting, taller rocks would help. Since you already created the slope, Try having larger rocks on the right where the slope is the tallest and have smaller rocks as the slope goes down.

What kind of shrimp are those? They look like blue tigers.

Very nice let grow in.
You may want to raise the rocks ups to stick out a little.

Thanks I will be doing that once the tank matures since the last thing I need atm is a spike in amonia
and to answer the shrimp question they remain unamed until I get them to breed true
