I think you needed a different viewpoint, or just a single bloom. There are too many petals causing confusion. I wonder why you used negative compensation - this is a bit under exposed, needing to be brighter - probably the correct exposure. You would be better with a smaller aperture to increase depth of field a background is not a problem - possibly some flash fill.

This flower has spindly petals which are going in all directions, bg, and so you would need a smaller aperture in order to get more of them in focus. In this image, most of them are out of focus. (They look like a group of yellow snakes, like on Medussa's head, very interesting).
It's perfectly ok to just have a part of the flower in your frame, but I would suggest having the flower emanating from the bottom left corner (it somehow looks better) and for all of the petals to be inside the frame, not cut off at any point, with some space around them.
