You do the picture the way you see it.
Here is how I see it.

I would crop out those patches of white top right using the green of the leaves to balance the top left. The white patches draw your eyes away from the flower head.
I would then sharpen the yellow tips just a little to stand out from the flower itself.
Just a personal viewpoint and what I would do if entering it in my club's competition.
Do you belong to a Camera Club???

Nice crop. You can fix the white patches (that was mentioned by thoramay) using 'recovery' settings. It can dim these bright white areas and recover some details. You can also reduce the highlights that will give similar result. I also suggest you the increasing of the contrast a bit.
