A good try of a possibly difficult subject but with the subject being blurred and the palm frond the only thing in focus I am not sure that this works.

Don't give up though.

You should have set the camera up on a tripod and shot 50 focus brackets!   ;D

I think it works pretty well.  The eye is first attracted to the sharp leaves, then the de-emphasized tiger has a certain surprise quality, like he snuck up unnoticed.  Which is what tigers like to do.  It's a kind of "uh-oh" moment.  Or "sneaked," which is correct but kind of flat.

Quite effective. Nicely done. Just the right focus emphasis for me.

Based on your signature, I took the liberty to suggest a possible variation on the theme:

Thank you Gentlemen,
Good comments and yes, the focal point is intentional.
Slobodan, wonderful interpretation, thank you.
