I can see that the camera focused on the petals of the flower, rather than on the center. About how far were you from the flower when you took this? Were you using center-zone or multi-zone focus?

Still a good pic, good positioning and good color depth!

It's a beautiful photo to me. By shooting it from an angle the edge closest to the camera wil be the one getting the sharp focus. The metering worked well as far as I can see!

IMHO this is one of those photos that you have to take from several different angles to really get the focus point that you want. Also try the spot metering with minus exposure compensationto prevent those blown highlights and to tame the exposure to theREALLY EXACT point that you desire.
