I'm assuming this was taken in low light so as to emphasize the fibre optics. The low light setting has caused the image to be slightly blurry rather than soft focus, at least near the top. The lower flower/leaf is much better and I like the pinpoints of light there too. The composition seems chaotic, so much has been cropped out that other than the lower leaf/flower there isnt much of a main subject. I think isolating the lower leaf/flower by getting in a lot closer would have made for a much more dramatic photograph.

I'm guessing this is one of those fiber optic light plants? There is a difference between soft focus and blur, and I'm seeing more blur.
