Roy i can say this is beautiful, superb, well done, but today i am telling you something different:-

1. if you do not use tripod, you should not break the rule of thumb( the shutter speed should not be less than the focal length but here you have used 1/30 shutter speed and focal length is 42mm Smile you should use 1/60 at this focal length that is 42mm)

2. iso 400 is not at all a good choice because it can produce noise in your image. try to use iso 100 or around this. actually f11 is a small aperture opening and this force you to use iso 400.

3. for any kind of close up work f5.6 or lower than that will be better.

( consider a situation:- you want to fill a pot with water and you open a tap.

the pot = your image(that you want to take and see through a view finder)

the water = the light(that you need to expose your image properly)

the tap = the shutter(that you want to open for a certain time to fill the pot or to capture the image with proper exposure)

the size of the tap = the aperture opening(large f number means small aperture opening)

so it is a math and always calculate and execute.

although a vote to your image for a good ps work.

Like your choice of bk colour which works well with the flower colour. Not an easy flower I find to do full justice to, but this is very pretty, especially with the lovely wterdrops.
