    #1 - Would work better if you didn't clip off the top of the yellow part of the flower.

    #2 - Ummm...too busy.

    #3 - Neat shot...not quite sure what I'm looking at but the composition is good...good use of leading lines...has a mysterious feel to it.

    I'm not crazy about the first two. I agree that the second is definitely a bit busy. The first is okay, but it just doesn't grab me.

    However, the third is outstanding. I think I love everything about it. It's abstract but doesn't scream abstract. It invites you in to ask questions about what you're seeing, even entertains the imagination. It makes me think of a short film I saw once called 'More'.

    Very well done.

    I like the first one, depending on the editor you have, if you could sharpen it a little bit or add just a little contrast, think it would bring up some of the fine detail. But there is really nothing wrong with the subtle shading.

    Getting in close really focuses attention on the flower. Next time if you could to that with the second one, maybe capturing just the two blossoms in the middle that would help.

    One important thing to remember about photography. Shoot what pleases you in the way it pleases you. For no matter how you do it, it is not possible to please everyone. If you change what you do to suit one person, then the other who likes it will not like it.

    Photography is an art as well as science, use your creativity to make it look what you like, even if break some technical "rules."
