    The first one feels a bit awkward, but I think it's because it's a unique execution of an otherwise standard shot. The maroon colors are great. At first I didn't like the leaf coming up so close to the camera, but now I think it adds an extra element of dimension that I like. I'm also hugely fond of the texture that the out-of-focus plans in the background create against the beige color. If anything at all, I would suggest that it be about a half stop brighter.

    The second one is good, but just doesn't really catch me. Also, the structure in the background frames out the flowers in a strange way that I find distracting.

    Both a good images, but I definitely like the first a lot more. Good job. :)

    Nice shots. In the second one, the red in the background is distracting even though you narrowed down the depth of field. You might have to take them at a different angle to get around that.
