I like the idea behind this and black and white is a great choice, to concentrate the mind on the shapes and textures. The mottled background is good, too — frosted glass?

I think the result would be much stronger with just a single stalk of grass. The half-included one in the lower-corner detracts from the simplicity of the composition without adding anything, in my opinion. An alternative would be to go for a square or landscape format, including the whole of that stalk. Make it part of the composition, rather than something that happened to be in the frame.

I also think that a stronger silhouette would help: at the moment, there's just enough detail in the grass to make give the viewer half a thought that it's underexposed, rather than silhouetted.

Hmm. Having looked at this on a different monitor, I retract the suggestion of under-exposure: the exposure's just fine.
