Are those the real colors of the roses? Very different with the green and lavender.

Hi Kate.
With a much smaller aperture, and a higher ISO to allow for the accompanying reduction in shutter speed... f/16@ISO800 would still have given you that 1/4sec...the bloom at the bottom right ( as Lillian noted, although she may have been referring to the top right! ) might also have been in focus.
As it is, it sticks out like a sore thumb...might be an idea to crop it out. I don't think the composition would lose anything by being more square.
