Spencer in the flowers

I took this in hand today! First I did a bit of a crop, the balance wasn't working for me. Then, generally tried to bring some order to it. I made some definite decisions on my palette and the balance of colour throughout the painting. I also added some more colour to Spencer who had been left looking washed out. Now I pondering, not sure where to take this or to call it done.

I can't decide what I love best about this, the perspective, the colours or the wonderful textures on the top right corner :-D
