The colors do not have a "WOW!" effect yet, you could add one to make it look really really cool ;)

Very nice closeup, i would use curves on the flower to brighten it just a bit.
A simple s curve will do see..

You could probably make it even sharper...with unsharp mask.

There are filters/scripts for an awesome looking color effect, just look it up before you try to do it manually, it might save a lot of time.
