The yellow flowers against the dark sky are gorgeous, but the flowers at the top have moved, due to the wind, I guess. Would have been good if you had isolated the lovely yellow flower against the dramatic sky and excluded the green stuff. Also, you would have needed a faster shutter speed to avoid movement, but if this was taken on a phone, then maybe phone's aren't quite there yet. Apologies if I've got it wrong Wink

The yellow flowers are quite striking, Wajid, and you did well to get most of them against the sky, as opposed to against the greenery. If you had taken just a little lower point of view, you could have had a complete sky background for them - you were almost there.
This was taken in the afternoon, and therefore looks underexposed. Without any Exif data or information about your camera settings, however, it is difficult to advise you as to how you could have avoided this. You have a very attractive cloud formation in the sky, but I feel it needs lightening to bring out the detail. Strangely enough, I quite like it as it is, but it looks like a storm is brewingSmile.
You have placed your main flower in the centre of the frame, which isn't always a good place for it to be. Off-centre often looks better, and an understanding of the Rule Of Thirds can help a lot when looking at your subject prior to shooting, and composing accordingly. Also, I might have been tempted to use a portrait/vertical format for this tall flower, as it often gives a better sense of height.
I have done a modification where I cropped with the Rule Of Thirds in mind, eliminating most of the left side, where there are no flowers, placing the main flower on the left third and leaving two thirds sky and one third greenery on the vertical. I brightened the image, adjusted levels and cloned out a bit of foliage on the right frame.
