Focus seems off, not a very interesting subject or lighting.

Maybe they were moving (or you were shivering in the cold!) but the stalks seem a bit blury.

Good bokeh background and I also like the light on this. To a minor extent my eye is led out of the frame by the ones on the far right that are cut off.
