A perfectly good image. I would prefer a slightly tighter cop and would be looking for a little mor depth of field. you would be better at f8 and up the ISo a touch to allow that. the quality drop will be minimal.

Its a lovely flower, and the image does it justice.


A closer crop as Paul suggests would help it stand out a little more, - and perhaps a slight increase in brightness.


Ive uploaded a mod with this done.

I wonder what type of flower this is, - do you know?


Regards

You have a nice viewpoint on the flower. The tighter crop in the mod makes the most of this capture.
You used Program - to get greater dept of field you need to take control and select Aperture Priority, using f/8 as Paul suggests, for example. Even f5.6 on your camera would be good, and you'd maintain the fast shutter speed if you then increased the ISO to 400. Minimal loss of quality as mentioned and not noticeable for most cases.

It's a very attractive shot, nicely taken.

My two suggestions would be:

Don't necessarily use your lens at or very close to its widest angle as here.

And check out the possibilities of cropping to square, as in Willie's modification. It contains a subject nicely. Standard 3 x 2 format doesn't always suit a single, strong subject.

Nothing to add - other than commending the advice above!
