I sort of do, but I changed the UF/RF up, I changed them back, though.I like your UI very much. Do you have a infight Screenshot?
I changed the font too, I'll get an SS tonight if I can.
If so, you could disable rage showing on your Unitframes
I prefer those raid frames over the "old" ones
Floating Combat Text still seems a bit...spammy.
Other than that its cleaner and more "readable" for me at least
This is the one I'm using right now
I'll disable the power bar on my player frame, it does seem unnecessary. I disabled the health deficit, it just happened to be everyone was at full health at the time. :x

Update on a couple changes I've made recently.
After seeing Jeremypwnz screenshots I really liked the "shadows" on some of his frames, so I've taken that idea and added them into my UI.
Other change has been that I cleaned up the tags in my unit frames.
-Health percent and Power percents are on each side instead of side by side.
-Health current / max was changed to just current and moved to the middle.
-split up my buff groups (top right) into short(less than 2min) and long (more than 2min) as it used to be all one large group for all. (this change was due to how i had to add the shadows on my buff/debuff frames)

- You also have timers on the auras with a countdown and a bar underneath that takes up what could be 1/5th of the icon, which could be removed to slim them down.
- The minimap and buffs themselves seem to take up quite a lot of room in the top right corner of the UI too. Do you look at them that much that they need to be that big?
- I'd also say that you've quite a lot of text covering your health bars which makes them seem to be a bit messy and cluttered!
Any recommendations for my UI, there's lots of room for improvement I beleive? Like to keep things simple so I'm just using mainly blizz ui elements for now..
I'd like to add/refine things like
-Good square minimap
-Smooth unit frames
-"elegant" raid frames such as elvui raid frames. But without using elvui.
Here it is now: http://i.imgur.com/6bO2jaB.jpg
Taking all recommendations!

It's a very good default UI alternative and I think it might fit you well.
http://i.imgur.com/AxKOdNC.png) altough I could have done a better job at managing the spacing.
My other suggestion would be that you could make your actionbar to the left on the screen invisible (Or 40% opacity until you get used to it) unless mouseover. Same thing with your micromenu. Then I'd just stretch out your micromenu to one column or row and put it to the edge of the screen as well.
The only thing other than the unitframes that I would suggest would be a chat addon.
2: Again it's on purpose the icons are rectangle and the status bar underneath the icons are for design. (also something I've had in my screenshots for ages) The author liked the idea so much when I first asked how I could make the edit for rectangle icons he actually added it into the addon itself as a feature, so I'm not that crazy.
3: The minimap and buffs really don't take up as much space as it looks. Again this is something that's been this way for ever and never commented about.
4: Are you kidding me? I get rid of text and then you tell me there is too much? You sir are on glue.

At the very least, respond cordially - which means not making the person giving feedback sound like an unobservant idiot or by telling them they're "on glue." Or just continue posting screenshots and enjoy a complete lack of responses because, unless it's someone patting you on the back, no one is going to want to add any suggestions.
I never said you're crazy, I just asked why it is you have two sets of timers on your icons, one of which makes them look bloated and irregular.
You should learn to take feedback a little better too as referring that someone is 'on glue' isn't really respectable.
But you're right I will stop posting screenshots as the UI gods in here apparently are never pleased.
The only other thing I would say is to get a chat addon such as chatter or the much more light weight and simple "BasicChatMods" which I am currently using. Chatter seems very big for what I need it for. I also use nibChatTabs to stylize up the chat tabs a bit better and remove the background etc. BasicChatMods comes with nice features such as removing the buttons on the left, making it possible to click on website links and copy the URL when linked in the chat box, and many more small but nice things. I just like the fact that it lets you move it lower than the blizzard default chat box lets you so you can put it right in the corner rather than slightly hard up. But I am a very picky person lol.
For minimaps I would say either SexyMap or qMinimap. SexyMap has a built in GUI and I'm mostly sure that qMinimap has to be edited in the .lua file but its easy and there isn't much that needs changing. I made my own Minimap addon so I don't use either though.
You have done a nice job making your bars look nicer but I recommend keeping the style consistent with your buffs. I use PhanxBuffs to do this with Masque.
I know I ramble on a lot so I will end it here lol.
