Rescape inspiration needed

I'm planning to rescape my 60p after I move in a few weeks and I'm looking for some good examples of similarly sized tanks with both driftwood and rocks ideally.

This is what it looked like prior to a giant hair algae bloom and ripping the moss off the driftwood and most of the plants out. It's pretty barren at the moment as I prepare to take it down for the move.

I'm thinking I'd like to consolidate the manzanita so maybe take one piece out and move the other to be more centralized or try to combine them. Right now they're more or less touching the glass in a few places and I'd like to avoid that so it's easier to clean the tank. Also I'm going to try to anchor them down better so they're not falling over every time I bump them.

I'd love some inspirational photos of tanks with both driftwood and rocks and/or advice on layout or plants if somebody would like to help mentor me.

I'm adding co2 finally, hopefully this means less combating algae. my light is a T5HO 2x24w.

Wood and moss like you had before, done a bit differently. Some more plants like this might help to keep the wood in place:

A more simplistic style, again with the wood:

Minimal wood, more rocks:
