Hi,

Doing macro with a reversed lens that too handheld is almost a Herculean Task. You can see yourself that due to extremely thin DOF only a very small part of the flower is in focus. Also almost the whole front part is OOF which is not attractive.

You can arrange some flowers and try to do table top macro with support and try to keep the front part in sharp focus with the background OOF or you may try focus stacking. Light will be an issue so do trial & error with some off camera flash and diffuser.

regards
Somnath

Thanks Somnath for detailed feedback.  I will try focus stacking . 
I was not successful yet on trying indoor as everytime to change i have to move back on lens. This changes composition. So was not confident as it works. Thanks again for your time. Will try and post the result :)
