    It's a little too big to see the whole composition at once.

    One thing - there are a lot of pure blacks on the face, but it doesn't seem that there are any other strong design elements elsewhere to draw the eye around the composition.

    One way might be to add three dimensionality to the flower. By putting highlights and shadows on the petals and sepals it will call some attention to the flower so the eye has more than one thing to settle on.

    Depending on the effect you are looking for, you could even have the flower cause a cast shadow on some of the adjacent elements. Don't use black for this though because it will look fake.
