Hi Simina, Excellent composition, POV and DOF. IMHO dull colors, it could be a little under exposed. It could be corrected in RAW or, PS CS5 a combination of HDR Tone, or and tuning, curves, levels or and saturation. I understand that others might like it being soft it and does not hit you in the face...
Sometimes a white or black board behind the flower will make magic to the shot. Another way is to use fill flash or a reflector to bring out the beautiful colors of the flower and leaf. Oveall I love the shot.

Nice composition. The flower could be a little more vibrant but I happen to like the soft effect. Simple but elegant.
