Nice subject. May be a vertical shot would have been better, covering the full subject. There is too much of empty space which does not add to composition, Tried tweaking & opening up the image.

Nice idea. However, the flower is positioned too far to the left. When composing with an isolated subject and a lot of empty space, it helps to position your subject at a rule-of-thirds point.
Here is a post about the rule of thirds- http://www.indiawilds.com/forums/showthread.php?357-Rule-of-Thirds&highlight=rule+thirds . Modern DSLRs have rule of thirds grid lines in Live View mode (so do compact cameras and even most mobile phones). You can use those to assist composition until you get used to it.
In the present conditions, I agree with Anil ji's repost. Is the focus slightly off the flower?

I agree with the previous comments. One more reason why a bit more space at the left would have been better because a part of it is cutoff.

This was a experiment of rule third on flower, if the flower kept left and in angle with clear green background what the frame looks like.

Thanks all for giving time to study photograph and giving suggestion to rectify photography mistakes.

Thanks and regards,
