This is not a bad image. It's nice and I'd hang it on my wall. I would make a few adjustments. I think I might move the leaves around a bit and certainly get rid of the one circled. It isn't going anyplace and the light isn't changing rapidly, so you'd have time to play around with it. I would also crop it. I think the lighter bark on the right side is a little bright and my eye keeps wandering there. Slap on a vignette and I think you have a slightly more powerful image.
