Sticks and stones.....

So I got some really nice Manzanita wood from manzanita-driftwood.com in California. I am really happy with the look of the pieces but still fiddling a lot with the actual scape ! It all started a few weeks ago. I bought a new Fluval 3.0 light & decided to tear down my almost 4 year old established tank. I ripped out all the plants & substrate, and replaced with a neutral (un black) gravel. Used 4 litres of Tropica substrate underneath. I planted all new Tropica tissue cultures, and they have grown well, however the manzanita wood was an after thought, so it's been a bit of trouble trying to put it in the most esthetically pleasing arrangement. Thoughts ? Oh, and I will also add that the branches are really lightweight, so the rocks are holding them down.

What is there is not bad, if you are looking for advice I would move it more to the left or right. Having the major branchy part in the center is not the best in my opinion. The branchy part should be much closer to one side. You might need some more rock pieces in there to add details.
