Nice photo but it is not really fitting my definition of ROT. That a side there is a lot going on in this photo, very busy, and it is hard for me to find one thing to focus on. Also when shooting flowers you should pick the ones that are in pristine condition, here it looks like the bugs got a hold of them.

A bit blurry on the two flowers that are set back, but otherwise a great picture!

I like the colors and composition, but perhaps a bit out of focus?

There are spots on the flower that is in the 1/3rd position. However, you have all three competing for the subject. If you intended the grouping to be the subject it is centrally located and not fitting this criteria. Which is how I am reading it. There are two ways that I can think of at this moment to correct that. use a very shallow dof and have the larger flower in focus and the other two blurred out. Since they are further from the camera, it should be possible. The other way is to move the angle of the camera. Instead of top down, go from the side about 45 degrees from the horizontal plane so you can see the center of the flower. Use a shallow dof to show depth. Looks like the lighting is good for this subject.
