I think the shot would have been more interesting if you'd changed your viewpoint on this flower. As it is, the composition just does nothing for the viewer. If the flower is still around for you to shoot again, try moving around to your left and taking a shot of it looking directly into the stamen from either slightly above or below, the bit shown pertruding out the front from the petals, whilst the flower is open and use a shallow depth of field to pick out just one part of the flower and keep the rest just out of focus.
Also, is it necessary to shoot this flower with such a high ISO to achieve the 1/500th of a second shutter speed, as it looks a little grainy? Use a tripod and a remote release cable to avoid camera shake if this is why you had to use such a high shutter speed. The focus also looks a little soft. What format do you shoot in? As there are a number of editing techniques you can use to sharpen the image.
