It's vibrant enough, but your white balance could be a bit warmer.

Raw as in you shot in NEF format or raw as in the jpeg out of the camera. I don't have a problem with the colour rendition of D90. I'm using 'Portrait' picture control and I usually shoot in 'Cloudy' WB. If you like things more saturated, you can use the 'Landscape' or 'Vivid' picture controls.

Work a bit on your composition.

Should have shot from a slightly different angle to bring the white park of the background away from the flower clusters. It's a bit distracting but I think might be ok if it formed the background of the stalk instead.

Did you use Adobe Camera Raw/Photoshop to convert? I'm not a RAW shooter but I heard that Capture NX does a better job in converting NEF files. Actually if you don't need to do a lot of PP work, JPEF Fine should be more than sufficient and that should save you a lot of time converting from NEF.

Yup. Observe some composition rules such as Rules of Thirds, Vanishing/Leading Lines or Triangular composition to begin with and after you get the hang of it, you should be able to break away from these rules and go with what you think is pleasing.

wow .. how come so dark 1?
Most important is to bring the attention to the subject. Playing with contrast can help to bring the viewer's attention to the main subject. However, the bright patch on the right of the flower spoils that. It's important to watch the background also. Some people may feel that the image is slightly under but I think it's ok.

Oh! You shoot in Raw ah? Raw meaning uncooked, unprocess or being in its natural condition.

So naturally the color may appear somehow "uncooked".

Depending on the subject. Color for Raw file is commonly not "vibrant" compare with Process Jpeg. You go shoot the same subject again in Jpeg and compare the two and you should be able to see the difference. Flower with vibrant color usually will be quite obvious.

the dull colour is because the light is not ideal

in the picture above the light is from the back and thus the flower is in shadow, so how to get vibrant colour
try again what nice light falling on the subject and under expose slightly

Not totally true. It largely also depends on what processing the camera is putting each JPG image through.

its just one of the "millions" of ways a photo can be adjusted to make even a average photo possibly look interesting.
