Hi Mai Britt,
Welcome to TrekNature and happy new year first of all, these are the most important things. Secondly, about the photo. Not so bad, but a couple of things may be improved in my opinion.
1. Composition's too central, which makes the whole image a bit static. Try to compose your subject to any thirds of the frame (in case of this scene into the right, because the flower "looks" to left. See rule of thirds to get the point).
2. The crop is too tight at the top and the bottom, the edge of the frame's very closed to the petals, the subject doesn't have enough space to "breath".
3. White balance was set to "auto", which resulted a little undersaturated and washed out colors. If you don't want to experience various settings before releasing the shutter, use your software for correction.
4. Focus is a little soft, the subject isn't sharp enough. You can use the free demo of Neat Image for sharpening the subject and at the same time noise reduction of the background, it's quite good for small sized photos as the TN standard. www.neatimage.com
5. Name of the genus is Pilosella, not Pilocella, and the species is native to the subalpine region of Europe. In your country it only lives if escaping from cultivated stock.
I try to demonstrate my ideas with a workshop, hopefully it helps, too. Otherwise, have a nice time on TrekNature while posting your photos and commenting of others'. The very best regards from the Hungarian living in Ireland, László
