In some aspects the light has made this picture look like a painting. I refer to the flower's left top part, the red faints like paint on a brush moved from inside of the flower outwards. I find this very artistic. I am skeptic about the aperture used. I think f29 gave a very sharp edge to the top right of the flower and makes it look as if it is cut and imposed on the white background. I guess you used two sources of light form two directions I would either try a third light form top right, if you insist using the softbox on the right or a smaller aperture.

Also you can try to shoot it in a horizontal format and see which you like best.

Very nice image. Well exposed and lit. Beautiful flower and the background is super too, pure white. I've done a mod which rotates the flower so the stalk comes from the bottom of the frame and also removes some of the white dead space at the top. Just my view but I don't feel the composition is as comfortable as it could be.

I prefer the re-oriented version, and one other thing is the quite heavy shadow inside the flower. I might have used a small white reflector to bounce a little light inside from the front. I think it would have made the flower look more delicate.
