    I reckon crop out some of the background. It's missing something but I don't know what. All I can think is too much background.

    While that PS technique is fun, I've seen very few attempts that really improved a picture. If you want to emphasize the flower more you might consider more standard and subtle use of PS. Crop more of the background out, especially that glaring sky, consider not centering the flower so much, it is usually more interesting and attractive if not centered, you can use color saturation and unsharp mask to emphasize the flower over the background but keep it very subtle. I assume the opportunity to reshoot this is gone but it really should be shot at an angle that puts the flower against just the vegetation and not partly against the sky.
