The center of the flower is too soft in my opinion. We want the center of the flower to be tack sharp. f/5.6 or f/6.7 might have done the trick when you're this close.

There is also a degree of overexposure here, but it's a good perspective and with more controlled lighting this would be a winner.

Hard to control the sun when it's 35 degrees with 80% humidity.
