The shot definitely has some appeal. I think it would work better if you were able to get the DOF a bit more shallow. Since the background consists of the same type of elements as the subject, there needs to be greater definition between them. If your lens has macro capability, that would be a way to go if you can't get wider aperture and/or longer focal length.

definate potential in this shot

as mentioned earlier by another, a real shallow dofwould work great here. I think the backing needs to be blurred out as it would appear very distracting if its not oof.

I also think you should take out any excess in the foreground which doesnt really add any value to the subject. Maybe clear it out a little.
