More Bling

I finished this collage a couple of weeks ago, and despite the fact I like the bling, the red rose and the green background, it still annoys me. Why didn’t I “do” something with the upper right quadrant? If I’d been working on this collage in Photoshop, I could have experimented with the layout, but when you’re doing hands-on stuff you have to commit to what seems right at the time—and then just live with it.
Obviously there’s nothing preventing me from adding something to improve it now, but I seem to work better when I’m paring things down rather than jazzing them up. I have a feeling this collage is one of those pieces that’s going to be yodeling at me for a while.

I like this one just as it is. I don't think it needs anything else. The picture of the rose is one of my favorites because the colours are lucious.

I agree with the other 2. I like it the way it is. Maybe "busy" isn't always best?

The composition is fine. I don't believe you need anything in the upper quadrant. It may be the blue background to the rose that may be niggling you?... there you go: unsolicited opinion!
