Your tank looks quite nice in my view, well done. I would suggest a background--seeing the wall and cords behind is distracting. Something as simple as black paper taped on the outside works fine, and black brings out the plant greens and fish colours nicely. You can buy inexpensive black patterned paper at the lfs; I wouldn't go with a picture of plants though, as that would definitely distract more from your nice plants that should be the focus, not the backdground, which at present is competing with the interior.
I also think jeaninel and kim are correct that one piece of bogwood set off-centre, either to the left or right, would add a lot; kim's idea of a twig-type is worth considering, and it wuld add structure without mass and the tetras like swimming around twigs. I would then move the centre plant just to which ever side is opposite where the wood goes. It is better not to have anything dead centre, and it would make the tank seem more spacious. Things placed in th centre always make the eye think the space is smaller.
Nice plants and setup.
