I like it overall, some things to improve

1: A darker background, I feel the background is a bit too light for the flower.
2: There seems to be smudgy or smear marks on the picture which kill composition

Other than that I like the blur effect and also the colour of the flower, its nice to see a naturally coloured flower given, there are to many over saturated flowers out there.

Nice job. What kind of lighting was used for this? If ambient light as used, I think maybe a reflector over the top may have been of some benefit to bring just a LITTLE more light to the subject.

I need to address my BG, its in the works.

Here are a few other comps that don't rely on it so much, perhaps you like these better?
