Nice composition, with the flower heads framed by the leaves.

An image that has a pleasing seasonal feel - I like it, the composition works

If I had o make a suggestion I would hazard that perhaps the image looks a tad flat, lacking depth, prob a product of light and stacking; perhaps some additional directional lighting would help out in these situations. I don't know, never played with stacking effects

All the best
