I like the contrast of the flower against that nice dark bokeh.
But I think this could have used a better crop.

Good concept, but a couple of things stand out to me. The stem on the right side of the image needs to me removed. The blues could stand out more. Maybe adjust those in PS.

very centered subject, but that distraction on far right would have been easy to clone or crop out. love the dark background while retaining good bokeh. gl.

I like the light touch of color the bokeh provides.
I would suggest cropping so that the plant on the right isn't visible.
