need help with scape

Hi, I have a 33 gallons planted which is starting to look bad because the plants have grown and the scaping was not that good anyway.
sorry for the lousy picture but I have just recently started to experiment

It looks like this now :

I need Ideas as how to place the plants....
there is an anubias hidden behind the cabomba
there is java moss everywhere (It grew waaaay to quickly)
there is also a rock mountain at the back (covered in moss)

Also if you have a good tutorial on how to take pics with a digital cam that would also be nice.
thanks

fill up your tank

a single carpet type foreground plant might help simplifiy everything

add in some red plants too, wait for it to grow in

I think that moving the taller stem plants to the back might give a better sense of depth, or perhaps hide some hoses and filter intakes. I like the hill on the right side, but you may want to more neatly attach moss to it, or attach something else like a java fern. Good luck with the rescape.
