Yay, you broke the 5! I was one of your 5 voters.
Pros: the bokeh is good, shows the subject off to good effect, and is definitely aesthetically pleasing. The shell is shown to good effect. I like the way the plant is angled so that the bottom is away from the lens and consequently out of focus.

Cons: the snail is out of focus - f3.2 was too wide an aperture, you probably needed around f8, and at at least f5.6. This was quite a big issue for me. Compositionally, the subject is leaning to the left, it just looks a tad unbalanced.

Summary - biggest problem is the ultra shallow dof.
