Looks nice but i would adjust the left lamp so that it hangs above the centre of the cube. I would also place the hang on filter of the left cube to the far left and the hang on filter of the right cube to the far right to complete the balance and to hide them some more behind the longer stemplants.

Thank you for the suggestion ;). Yeah the lighting has been adjusted since the photo was taken. I'm going to try and move the filters more to the extreme sides. I was planning to put a black background too to help hide them better.
