A little more DOF would really help. (It would get both flowers in focus)

the flash is a little too strong on this one, washing out the richness of the colors.

Overall well done, but what really makes this is the arrangement of flowers.

Beautiful and Neat perspective, but top flower out of focus...it's your subject, so it should be in focus.

I like how the flowers runs out of the frame, focus seems a bit off though.
