Recently repotted....this is a Polyscia fruticosa elegans (Parsley Aralia).

Nice clump, Tom, and I like the pot it is in, too. Can you separate the trunks in the right-hand clump a bit -- perhaps by pulling the largest trunk over by a half or quarter inch? That would -- to my eye -- solve a leftward lean to the composition.

I still think the rightmost tree need to lean out a bit more. Perhaps just a brace between in and an adjoining trunk will be sufficient.

not that my opinion matters much, but i agree with jim...

a little spread, maybe creating some open space (like on the left) would do wonders for the composition.
