Its a nice competent flower shot. Nice to see signs of Spring, especially here in Toronto.

You havent told us anything about shot settings, so theres limited critique we can so.

My suggestion in the mod are to crop to place the Rose off centre; reduce noise and sharpen, and Ive added a tough of a catchlight to what appears to be a drop of water.

Hope this helps,

Hello, Bill. It's been a while since you uploaded a picture. I haven't done a modification because I'm still waiting to see Willie's. There is some burn-out on your rose petals, caused by strong overhead light. I would suggest that you either use Exposure Compensation or choose a time of day when the light is less intense, to avoid this. Also, you have another rose in the background, just behind your chosen specimen, and if you can avoid this, it isolates your rose much better. You can use pegs to hold back anything that intrudes into your frame.
