    I like them both for different reasons. Totally different moods. I like the composition in #1 (the angle of the flower) better. Agree with Bobo on #2 crop. I'd like it better without the band of light color at the top. I like the water droplets on #1. But the nice diffused light in #2 makes it a calming image. Not sure any of those comments have much to do with the lens.

    I prefer the first one. The flower is almost completely in focus. Also the water droplets add a nice extra touch.
    But both are very nice photos!

    Hello James, I like the first. The background is much nicer, a softer blurred green which allows the flower to stand out.

    I like the first too - partly because of the background/bokeh. But...a little bit apples vs. oranges as they are both very nice and I wonder if the second shot with the same background would be quite similar.
