Not bad, but could be better. You have focussed on the leaves, which makes looking at the stigma and anthers (had to look that up) feel kind of uncomfortable. None of them are sharp. I do not take pictures of flowers, but from what I've seen, it's typically those parts that "should" be in focus, with the leaves making for a more pleasing out-of-focus background.

agreed, its great shot, but with the stigmas blurred its kind of off putting.
Maybe keep all the flower in focus or the stigma, or have at a slight angle.
