Too many of the same picture. Lacks variety. Looks monotonous. Slighly under on my screen.

they aren't real flowers are they?
U took this indoor under florescent lighting?
if so switch the White Balance if using digital
otherwise a filter might be needed to make the
colour look more natural.
explore more with Dept of Field and various angle
dont be too greedy with subjects

I see you use bounch flash. Besides bouunce, you can try side lighting with a reflector.

The problem is your exposure is slightly under for my liking.

Second is that you choosed the wrong background which happends to be your home wall.

Third is that your composition is all over. No define shots. You should concentrate on one part of the flowers instead of just shooting the overall subject.

As stated by the rest, WB needs to be adjusted. I am pretty sure this is not the colour of your real flowers. Plus the DOF which has been mentioned as well. DOF is very important when shooting close up subjects. This will help when u have too much busy things going on in your photo.

no flash used...

this was long exposure...your impression of bounce comes from overhead lighting

I have never found light source from the top anything remotely close to a bounce flash....
