I'm not an expert but I think you've got alot of the same flower in the same picture, reducing the attention from the main flower you're projecting. Also for the 3rd picture it would have been better to include all the flower in my opinion.

#2 is the best imho:
- enough parts of the flower are sharp
- nice out-of-focus effect with the surrounding flowers.

#1 is too little for the eye
#3 has problems with the unsharp parts of the main flower. Try to reshoot with f/16-22 to get more of it in focus...

I think the first photo isn't in a good angle.

with Thomas on two.

just that little tilt inwards, brings more of the flowers heart to the photo, with the knowledge that the bud will soon be as beautiful, using that edge of the bossom for frame work, mirrioring the leaves..balances the visual effect...superior work, welcome to this hang out, it is a great spot to learn the technicalities, you already have a great eye, so this should be a breeze for you...still some time to enter the "on Assiagnment" for this month hint hint hint.


Keep em coming.

I think the first picture is most romantic.

May I add that all three images are a good demonstrator of different backgrounds:
#1 is distracting for me.
#2 has more dark parts in it and thus the flower stands out more and the colors seem brighter, but still there are some distracting parts.
#3 has the best homogeneous dark backdrop for the flower.
