I like this, Muhamad, it works for me.
Pictures of foliage can be boring unless you present them in an interesting way, which you have done here.
Shooting into the light has worked to your advantage, giving you a clean white background with just the leaves in your frame.
You also have dimension because the leaves overlap, and there is a nice effect with the back ones being a lighter green, which helps to separate the layers instead of them merging too much.
There are only a few small bits of stalk that have suffered from the backlighting, causing them to lose definition, so you did well.
Also, the majority of the leaves are in focus and the veins nicely defined, and the shapes are very attractive too.
Well done for trying something different, and pulling it off.
Pamela.

I have done a modification where I cropped to eliminate some of the large patches of white and to place the stem on the left thirds intersection. I like your image, but thought this might help you to look for your main vertical when shooting and place it accordingly.
