beautifuly taken, well done!
Hi Emma. This is quite an appealing photo with many things to like - background is nicely blurred and the exposure seems OK.
The only thing I would say is that the flowers don't quite jump out at you. To this end, in the mod I've uploaded, I've increased contrast via a curves adjustment, applied a slight positive gamma correction and sharpened slightly. See what you think - hope it helps.
Perfect, I understand and thankyou
Added a v2
As Carabosse says the "classic" shot has the flowers jumping out more...I have tried to do this in a mod by increasing Sat and Contrast and blurred out with the clone tool some of the distracting spare petals/stems/flowers.
Generally quite nicely done, but a couple of points. You must remove those background blurred coloured blobs - these distract a lot.
If this is a shot to illustrate rule of thirds, I would argue. It is a shot of three flowers, but one is in the middle and the other two - nearly - on the bottom left and right thirds.
Normally you would expect one dominent subject point, and that would be on one of the four third points.
However, forget the rule of thirds here, as it works quite well as it is compositionally.
