rich deep red tones , hard to achieve warmth with a red colour but you have done it splendidly

I think this image would benefit by being cropped down to just below the very bright out of focus red petal of the upper flower. This would make for a roughly square format, which I think would suit this subject. The OOF upper flower and the negative space above it seem to me not to add anything of value to your image and to distract from your, well lit, sharply focused photo of the lower flower.
