Certainly a much clearer and alien picture than the last one, props to that.
You did the light well, pops the plants out on the picture and the blue background even pops it out more, and it gives that 'stranger' feeling.
Some parts of the plant seems out of focus a bit, it really doesn't bother me much though, the rest is still clear as day and it dwarfs the mistake.
Overall I think it's a nice photo that sheds some light on still life photography, most of the picture is clear and sharp and the lighting is well place.

It's been a struggle between blurring the background and keeping most of the scene in focus. You noticed quite precisely that some parts of the scene are out of focus in the photo. I think I have some ideas though how to do it better next time.

Thank you for the critique, it is very helpful to know which parts of the idea worked and which didn't work so well (:
