I like the composition, depth of field and exposure. Were you shooting through tall grass? Some of the green in the foregound may be distracting to some. Other than that, pretty good.

I agree with previous comments. I like it yet the yellow foreground is just a bit too intrusive. Otherwise a brilliant capture

I agree with the distracting grass in the foreground. In this case the centered composition works well, and the flowers are a nice component. Frog is in perfect focus. So overall a very good picture

I like the photo.
I'd be tempted to darken the brownish-yellow and green plant material in the background — on both sides of the bloom that's on the right. I would use Nik Software's Viveza 2 to do that. (A trial version is available from Nik's website.) Viveza is a plug-in to such software as Photoshop Elements, Photoshop and Lightroom.
