It's a nice square composition. I would like to see the exposure and white balance lifted a bit more as the central parts look a tad too cold if they are to be white.

Thank you for your comment, Dalas. Yes, you are right, the white balance was not correct if I wanted to show the details as natural as possible. I should have made clear that I was playing with the colours in this case and not thinking about presenting the anthers like they really were at all. But I have changed the white balance in the new version, do you like that  more? (The yellow and the blue are still much stronger than  they are in nature).

It's better, for sure. If you want to only affect a certain part of the image, in Lightroom use a local adjustment brush and then paint in the areas that you want to change (ie. WB, exposure, clarify, sharpness, etc).
