I don't like any of the pre-made UI sets. They're usually either trying to look really cool and thus they take huge amounts of screen real-estate, or they're just packing way too many things in there and again takes too much space on my screen. I like my UI clear and non-cluttered.

I've seen some pretty poor UI's so far. Here's mine:
Oh yes, the bottom right box is both Omen and Recount.
DBM is far left.
I use a custom Satrina Buff frame middle left, and debuffs middle right.

Timers + CD bar = ForteXorcist
I use bartender for hot bar (not that you can see em! lol)
prat/recount/elkano's buff bars/grid (which is in a weird place, its usually bottom center in the black bar)
Sunn Viewport for the bottom blackness
Parrot combat text (dots + pet dmg rolling often my nukes damage wouldnt even get displayed... thats just no fun!)
Quartz casting bar
Shadowed Unit Frames
Still a bit unsure about mine at the moment. I'm using an edited version of Tukui (with a lot of preferred addons thrown in) and I have a bit of a thing for having everything directly below my character, making it seem a bit'stacked up'.
Any advice would be great. I'm certainly not a minimalist, I can't play with hardly anything there and don't feel comfortable, which I suppose makes it a challenge. The icons show when things are ready (TellmeWhen). There's quite a lot to track as demo and I don't just want to rely on the cooldown timer. The dot timer and the proc bars on the left hand side is NeedtoKnow, and I use Sexycooldown. I also use power auras for decimation and molten core. I use a bit of everything really as I'm very visual and don't want a screen full of either bars or icons...more a bit of both with a few power auras thrown in to keep me alert. Obviously during a boss fight everything should be on cooldown (except maybe shadowflame) so most of those icons won't be there, making it a little less of an eye sore as it is in the pic.
The gap on the right is where Omen is meant to be, and I still have some space for extra spells which I'll sort out later. My cast bar is a bit big also I guess. Grid is between my cast bar and action bar (you can see my box), I only raid 10 man and it's nice to have Grid here so I can see health and debuffs. I also have healing alts that I play a lot so I like to have it consistent between characters. Having Grid there is partly the reason for the stacked up feeling, I think.

If Defile is about to hit and I see that the healers already have stuff going on I might want to hit shadow ward. If the entire raid is entirely topped off I might be inclined to finish 1 or 2 more casts before moving out of a voidzone.
