I dig that you're going for the low-tech approach, and not looking to win any aquascaping awards - that's basically my approach as well - but, from a compositional perspective, the appearance of your tank would be vastly improved if you moved the tall wood piece more off-center. Since your heater's on the right side of the tank, I'd move the wood just a couple of inches to the left. Having something so close to the exact middle of the tank, that's taller and darker than all of the plants, creates too much visual distraction. Of course, some of the plants may eventually grow taller than the wood - but even in a total jungle, you can still achieve visual balance.
