Great shot! Nice dof, sharpness, beautiful subject. only thought is that the bud could have been centered a bit more.

It is an interesting choice of crop. I think it works: the bud is ready to explode out of the frame: a very nice image.

That's good, as I can appreciate how tricky it is to get this looking as uniformly sharp as you have it, especially handheld.
