    Your subject is lost in the background for both of these, did you by chance take any shots closer and/or with the flowers not right in the centre of the photo?

    I took a handful... I will check, pretty sure the images that the subject was not centered has the same red in the background and they really were lost... I will check

    The "bokeh" (HATE that word) is pleasing, the colors are nice. You could crop some more to have it lead through the frame a little more.

    Aside from that, the subject isn't terribly interesting so it's not that gripping. Fine enough, but not something I'd print and hang on my wall.

    I hate that word too lol.... I don't know why, and I normally refer to it as DOF... but I was worried about sounding obtuse. I will continue to shoot for that frameable image :)
