Spiral nature.

By probal1basu    
I took this picture in macro mode. I tried to concentrate on the spiral bending the of this small tree. The light green background created more concentration on the tree. Could have taken the picture from a little far to capture the whole tree but the camera was not showing good output in macro mode.

To really appreciate the spiral nature of the fronds, you need to get closer and try to isolate them. As is, there is too much distraction in the frame, and I'm not sure there's a crop that will help much.
Try also to isolate the fronds against a single background - either sky or grass, but not both, as again, it distracts the viewer from the subject.
You could also do with a little more exposure to bring the subject out more. I suspect the camera has adjusted for the amount of sky in the frame and underexposed accordingly. If you can isolate against the grass, the exposure will be better, and you could also have a little blip of flash which should lift it. If against the sky, you will definitely need flash, a longer exposure, or let the camera expose for the sky and create a silhouette.

In short, find a bit of tree that is more isolated and get closer - fill the frame more with the subject - and try different lighting methods, including flash.
