This is mullein, Hesham, a very tall herbal and medicinal wild flower that often chooses to "be alone", and you can see it here . Good detail on the flower and a nicely blurred background. You have portrayed it standing proud amongst all the other greenery very well. I would normally suggest that you try to isolate your specimen more by doing a little bit of "gardening", holding back the ferns that are around it, but I think what you have done here works, especially since you were trying to portray a lone plant amongst green foliage. I would probably have chosen a vertical format for this in order to try to portray the fact that it grows extremely tall, some grow up to ten feet. As the image stands, I feel there is a lot of dead space around it and think that a crop to both sides would isolate it more, and you could then remove the yellow patch on the left which draws the eye. However, returning to your description about it being a lone flower, you might prefer to keep quite a bit of space around it, and just perhaps crop the left side.
