Unfortunately, your photo is out of focus - the flower isn't sharp, and it's somewhat blurry. The exposure could also be better which can be corrected in post; the focus cannot.

Focus and exposure are two critical elements in photography that can make or break a shot's quality.

@Abambo and @ricky336  have pointed the technical issues.
