Great capture!. good composition as the stem leads to the subject nicely. flowers add to the composition. sharpness throughout. Interesting subject. All the right ingredients for a great image. May be a little too tight on left and bottom. adding some canvas can help.

Nice shot, good detail and lighting. I think shifting the view a little to the left would benefit, leaving out the dead flowers and giving some space on the LH side of frame. Perhaps you could achieve that by cropping differently?
