This is a good subject, with striking colors of both flower and leaves. More of the smooth green background such as you have in the upper right corner would be a better fit, if it could be arranged. More diffuse lighting would also be good for this subject. I'd crop away about a quarter of the left and a quarter of the bottom.

Nice photo, some people don't like foreground blur, but I don't mind. That leaf in the foreground makes the photo look like you have to climb over to see the flower to me that give a more 3d feel. I'm just starting to try my hand at macro so this is intriguing to me.

My thought was to put more emphasis on the flower...

you are right :when i took the picture i was on the top of a wall rounding the garden where this flower growed
it 's the reverse of what we call in french "contre-plongée" (my english vocabulary don't know how to tell it)
macro is a way to discover the world with a young new sight
thanks for your comment

thanks you : it's a good idea which gives more impact from the shot
i don't use post processing : bad manner due to a long usage of argentic photography on diapositives ; i have to invest on this subject !!
