There is a lot wrong with this, bg, and although you have made an effort to capture the red and white, it fails for the following reasons:-
1. I can only see a tiny bit in the centre of the flower that is remotely in focus. A smaller aperture would have helped.
2. The white parts of the flower at the top are burnt out, leaving no petal detail.
3. I cannot understand why you needed to use ISO400 when the light looks to be strong. In fact, some negative Exposure Compensation would have been advisable, and an ISO of 100.
4. There are parts of the flower that are not inside the frame.
I am sorry to be so negative.
Pamela.

The f3.5 aperture is far too wide on a full frame camera. The resulting minimal depth of field gives an almost knife edge plane of sharpness when you actually needed an inch or two. Tripod and f8 or f11 needed.l
