It's nice, but it's not great..
It looks a little dull and a tiny bit soft, but that can be corrected - see workshop, but the main problem here is the loss of the tip of the lower petal in the crop - it spoils the picture for me. A slightly smaller aperture would have helped with DOF, which is marginal here (not all of the flower is fully sharp). I know that I say the same thing over and over, but take lots of shots on different settings and from different angles and choose only the best. Digital pixels cost nothing once you've paid for the camera ...
Don't give up, and don't take it personally if a shot doesn't attract attention ;)
Take care, Nigel.
