Where should I position the left-top element so this UI is more balanced?

I would move the image in and down a bit so that the margin/padding (gap to the outer edge) is the same as the margin you have around your QR code. Having consistent spacing is easier on the eyes IMO. – John Apr 17 '14 at 13:46

The more information you add to your question, the more detailed the answers will be. I would perhaps change 'enjoyable' (which sounds subjective) to something like 'balanced'. In any case, welcome to GD.SE! – Yisela Apr 17 '14 at 21:21

I have two suggestions, depending on the aim of this product:

1) Can the image thumbnail be bigger? I would make the thumbnail roughly the same height as the QR Code and incorporate @John feedback.

enter image description here

2) Is that QR code simply for that one thumbnail? or are there going to be more thumbnails per QR code? If the latter, I would create 5 more gray boxes the same size as the original thumbnail and lay them out on a nice grid, so you have a 2 rows of 3 boxes.
