    Krissy - the reason I prefer the first one to the second one is because, in the second one, we have flowers disappearing out of the bottom of the frame. In an image featuring a lot of flowerheads, then you will have some that are not all inside the frame. However, when the main subjects are front and centre like this, then I think they do have to be inside - just like you did in teh first one.

    On the third one, I wondered if we need all that foliage that makes up the left-hand side of the image? If you want the flower to be the pirmary point of interest, how about cropping it into a portrait orientation. In other words, keep the top, rigth-hand and bottom edge, but crop a big slice off the left-hand side so that the left edge of that main flower is close to the left side of the frame.
