Try this.

Yes, there are "rules" about composition which say to give space for the object to "look" into, which may be what you were trying to do. But, rules are meant to be broken. In this case, the subject works fine, in the center, with the OOF stem providing balance to the composition.

Shadows are OK, but you generally want them to be soft as you have here.

The shadows are not bad here, but flower shots generally diffused light is good. Overcast days are like a giant diffuser in the sky, so take advantage of them for flower shooting, or any other subject which is normally too contrastry. On a sunny day, you can also make your own diffuser. A simple paper plate shading the subject can work wonders :-)

I can certainly understand that. Of course, you may get lucky and have a a few overcast days. Heck, I'd just uproot a few and find the nearest shaded area. :-)
