This is a great shot - I think it's much better than the other macro you posted. Most of the flower is in crisp focus and the composition is pleasing. If you want to make the flower stand out more, like matthewchj said, you could paint the background. Or, if you wanted to maintain an outdoor look, you could apply a heavier blur to the background.
Nice shot of a beautiful flower!

I think you captured the right amount of light (exposure) and composed it really good. I think a slight blur to the background and a small crop would do fine. If you cropped the right upper corner to meet the right pedal it could remove most of the background.
