Like the others, i would move the anubias, but i think some java or christmas moss on the top would be nice, it would follow the wood and grow downwards, should give it a foresty appearance.

Thanks everyone! I spent about an hour moving around that anubais to different spots, of course once I have it somewhere I am okay with I read byrons comments and now I may move it again. The green plant on the wood is Lace Java fern, I had an idea to get some more of it and have it coming out of many of the cracks in the wood but I am going to hold off for now. I may add Christmas moss if I can locate some instead. Anyway, thanks again for all the opinions. I will probably post another picture tomorrow.

Here's an updated picture. I moved a few things around and let things grow in for a few weeks.

Fantastic, looks much better now. If you get a black background on that it will really pop.

I'm working on the background, I want to just to flat black so I may just get some construction paper from the art store.

i use this: Crystal Black Oceanvisions Background | Backgrounds, Self-Adhesive | Backgrounds | Aquarium - ThatPetPlace.com, sticks right onto the tank so theres no space between to create glare or bubbles etc. Its pricey and a HUGE pain to get on since you need to get it just right and cut it properly, etc. but its worth the time and tears and, in my case, some blood. Makes the tank seem way deeper than it really is.
