The post processing is good, and the subject interesting. However there is something not quite right about the composition IMHO. Can't just put my finger on it.
Wish the uncropped version was here to do a mod on.
Sorry I'm not much help:-(
Really cracking idea!

I've done a mod, cropped some of the right space and stretched the image to the right so the flower is more central and the petals fill the bottom. Added a black frame to define the edges.

Unusual composition so good thinking.

Perhaps simply cropping the top of the vase would imply height rather than stating it.

Did a mod as an idea.

brave use of the tall thin vertical format, seldom used and often avoided because its notoriously difficult to make work in a composition. i dont know why, possibly because we are pre conditioned to proportions and reading things left to right
i quite like the idea but i feel that there is too much separation between the flower head and fallen petals and as such i lose any relationship between the two with my eye scanning up and down trying to make the link. maybe fixing things so a couple are in flight downwards might work and additionally i think its slightly underlit on top and overlit on the base with the high key feeling starting to lose definition of edges.
just an opinion, i think it nearly work but not quite

best regards,
Phil
