How to fill up the empty space?

The right side looks pretty good, the left seems so bland and vague. What do think I should add to give it a bit more depth? I set this up a couple days ago and this is my first go at a lower tech planted tank.

Maybe you can remove the wood completely and plant some carpet plants? I think hydrocotyle japonica should be able to grow in that kind of set up.

Looking at the picture, my eyes are drawn from the lower right -> upper right -> middle top because of the wood you have there. After that, anything to the left to me seems more like a distractor than anything else.

- My two cents
