Hi Reno, I think it's a quite decent attempt,
but it looks a little soft to me. And there is quite
some noise too, isn't there?

Keep on trying and posting!!

There is some noise that can be removed by processing. You have your ISO set at 100 on your Kx, have you tried leaving it on auto or letting it go to a higher setting? I just purchased one and still experimenting. It is also cropped or taken too tightly, IMO Bob

It's a valiant attempt, but be weary that the closer you focus, the more you need to stop down (f/8 and beyond) to achieve adequate sharpness.
Also consider the white balance.

For being your first flower shot it is a great start. It does look like there is some grain in the photo possibly from ISO, but other than that it looks pretty good! You will learn more as you take more photos that is the beauty of photography.
