Default Should I be liking this?

It being an abnormally cold day here in Texas, I was fooling around with my digiscoping rig indoors and after taking a few shots of my wife's silk flowers, I discovered this one after downloading to Picasa. I think that it looks like a painting. The only things I did to the original were cropping, resizing for this forum and slightly increasing saturation. The Bokay is really aided by the 840mm focal length of my Zeiss scope. The distance to subject was 35 feet.

The texture of the flowers does give it the look of a painting. Pretty nice.
I think that I would crop a little bit more of the dark area out at the bottom, to more of a square crop, but that may or may not improve it.

G'day mate

Just going sideways ... if you can reshoot with a bit more to the left, it'd be a great shot to sell to the jigsaw company
