You have very nice lighting on the tulips, John.
Though a touch strong on their tops, where some petals have become burnt out, I quite like the effect.

The tulips themselves are attractively marked and of varying colours, as well as being staggered (at different heights), all of which adds interest.
Your reflection is well seen and well captured, nicely off to one side so as not to detract from the originals.
In my modification I have removed the leaves from the bottom left, and the little intrusion on the edge of the right of the frame, to give a cleaner finish.
My second modification shows a crop, maintaining your aspect ratio, removing a lot of the blank space at the top and part of the tulip far right, to give a tighter composition and to fill the frame with the tulips and their reflections. It keeps the real flowers in the right-hand two thirds of the frame.

I like the first modification but not the second because it cuts off half a tulip. Many thanks for critique, much appreciated. John

Well seen, nd a real attempt at producing something different by just thinking. You are just a touch over exposed giving some over bright highlights. A touch les exposure then, if necessary, lift the shadows with the dodge tool.

I agree with the above comments but a great try at something different to the norm
