Framing wise, the leaves do lead the eyes to the subject. But colour/contrast wise, everything is too flat. What would really work if you're not too against photoshop is to use some of the cross processing actions to tweak the colours.
Perhaps either a) pull back and move the statue a little off centre to make it look like something glimpsed through a hole in the leaves, or b) zoom in a bit more so the the DOF blurs the leaves and "suggests" a frame without being such a strong element of the picture.
Note that I am talking about small adjustments/differences in perspective, not major movements.
