As far as photographic technique is concerned, in my opinion, this subject is very difficult to expose correctly, without resorting to HDR. Nevertheless, I think you have done well as I can see details in the highlights in the white crocuses. And as these flowers are your main subject this is a Good Thing. However, I must admit that I don't think your focussing is such a Good Thing. Close-up photography is notorious for limited depth of field.

With regard to your composition of the image, they do say that if you were to take a photograph of a group it would be a Good Thing if there were an odd number of members in the group. You have photographed three crocuses and three is an odd number. So, this is another Good Thing about this photograph. Furthermore, I like the inclusion in the photograph of the water droplets - be they natural or out of a bottle - on the flowers. And, finally, even though it is technically not such a Good Thing, I don't mind the soft focus as far as the composition is concerned.
