Very pretty flowers, but I don't think the focus is quite as good as it should have been. If you can, give it another try, and try moving back a little bit, you'll get a lot more detail from the bed.

Hi Thanks for the feedback,
Yeah I noticed that its a bit soft in the top right only when I got it onto the larger screen.
Sadly I can't go back as I live in Slovakia so its not an easy commute, just have to find some other flowers to work with

They look quite similar, and still not quite sharp enough.
The image is very high in contrast due to the harsh lighting and as a result has very oversaturated colours and burnt out highlights.
You could have focused in on one flower, or isolated a small group of them in an interesting formation/pattern, but as is it is messy with no clear subject and a disorganised composition.
