General
impression
I really like the composition, the freshness and the colours, what I don't really like at all is the horrible white vignetting effect. Do you want maybe to use this picture for a mousepad?

Subject
of photo
Quite a common subject but there's the added touch of water drops that gives it a tad more freshness. The flower seems to be selected and not ruined at all, so if you wanted to take a picture of a flower it was a good way to do it.

Composition
& perspective
Usually is not a good idea to take pictures to flowers straight from the top, but in this case since what you captured is a very close macro picture, this is one of the best ways to do it. The subject is exactly at the center, but due to its nature this is also the case where you can break the rule of the thirds (if you don't know what it is I suggest you to look for it on the web, it will help you a lot in your future shots of different subjects).

exposure
& speed
I suppose it was sunny outside, I don't have any detail about your shot, I should also consider your is a completely automatic camera, so in this case what I should notice is that the camera itself made a good job and you made a good job holding it steady since you didn't use a tripod and in case there wasn't enought light. But as I said, since you didn't provide lot of details of your shot I can't really give you an exact judgement on this.

Once again, as I said focus is perfect, everything is sharp and in focus and in this kind of picture is what you should be looking for.

Absolutely perfect.

Nothing to complain about here, focus is perfect and the picture looks sharp.

How to improve your photo
1.
Avoid post processing effects when you don't need them, remember they're not compulsory and in this case I think they ruin the picture.
2.
Probably I would have moved the camera slightly more on the bottom, so I would have framed also the bottom leaf.
3.
I see you didn't use tripod, I suppose this picture was taken with lot of light available. Remember you won't be always this lucky, so when possible always bring one with you (even a very small portable one since yours is a small compact camera will do the job), it will also allow you to take some pictures impossible to take without it.
