Oh this is stunning, the curved lines in front of the straight lines. Did you try this in black and white? It might be very effective in accentuating the shapes.

Really nice!!! I like the organic fern against the more structural fronds of the palm behind it....the sharpness of the focal point and the slight bokeh...
Well done!!!
