Hi Antonio... I really like this one; a beautiful flower, and nicely framed!

As you've posted in Photo Critique, I'll add some constructive recommendations:

The background is as important as the subject, and in the lower part of your background there was something bright and yellow (peaking through to the lower left of the main flower), plus a pole of some sort (maybe the handle of a rake?) directly below and behind the flower. The options here would be (1) remove said items before taking the shot, (2) choose a different angle for the shot so that the background contains no distractions, or (3) deal with them in post-processing through repair and cloning.

All that said - a really nice, vivid flower photo! Thanks for sharing
