In general I love this shot; the colors are very appealing as well as the composition. If I had to pick something that made this shot less than a 10, I would say that I'd like to see at least one of the flowers be in better focus.

Those Candyland colors are just too appealing. Wonderful.

It wasn't until later that I noticed the splashes of
red-orange in the BG, & the square shape which I can imagine is a bee hive, for honey. There's a wonderful feeling of sunny breezes in this that creates a happy face on me. The color of the shadows on the pink petals is just perfect.

Nice colourful scene. I especially like the background here, it's fun, playful, goes well with the colour of the foreground flowers.

I'm not sure about having the two flowers in the foreground though, they compete for attention, I think having just one of those and keeping everything else exactly as it is would improve this shot.
