The feather owes its prominance to the color contrast but the focus is misplaced on the leaves toward the top. You need to shoot this subject from a different angle and especially with a larger aperature and longer focal length lens in order to define a main subject.

I guess the piece of feather is supposed to be the focal point. The white against the green could work. But the surrounding green is too fragmented and cluttered and the focal point is lost. I don't see how you can make the best out of this arrangement. You need to have a less cluttered background.
