I quite like this but there's something that's not quite right with the focus.
There's a hint of a halo forming on the edge of the flower in the front which makes me think that, since your shutter speed seems fast enough, it may have moved as you took the shot. Also, although the light's been fairly kind to you, there's very little of it inside the flower which really needs a bit of a lift.
I've added a mod. in which I've used the dodge tool to (very roughly) brighten a few hilghlights and I've applied a fairly serious crop, mostly to remove some of the leaves.
Hope this helps.

Bren.

Mostly said. Yu could crop off most of the top dark area giving a square shot and the critical focal point needs to be on the main bloom - that nearest the camera, unless you can use a smaller aperture and get enough depth of field for both.
