It's blurry. And the colors don't match up. :( And the masking is pretty rough.

Sorry, but it's just not where it needed to be. It's not terrible overall, in fact, the initial impact is pretty good, but with Expert Editing rules at your disposal, I expect a little more than this.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

I like the pop of colors of the red and the yellow. There is some details in the flower petals but overall the image is soft in focus where it could have been sharper and crisp. The other critique I have is that the lighting is rather flat. The contrast between light and shadows is not dynamic where it would pop off the page. One might be able to use PP with Levels and Curves to increase that dynamic range but it might be better to have better, balanced lighting on the subject first.
