    In #1 you may need to look at the lighting a little, maybe a fill flash from above or other light. Also a slightly lower angle might accentuate the curve on the petals more.

    Can you explain the point of interest/focal point in shots 2 & 3? I also presume these were taken on film and may need some more post production work to remove some of the dust.

    I think #4 has some potential. Maybe try some different compositions. The same subject in #5 seems lost and blended in to the rest of the leaf litter. Again maybe a lower angle and slightly less exposure?

    #2 and 3 I wanted to get a full shot up close on the plan and with #2 I just liked the way the plant created the sense of infinite depth looking down into it. Thanks for psoting some response I'm glad I got atleast one.

    Try #2 again with a wider lens (or from further back?) and a smaller aperture like f8 - f16.

    This should give you more depth of focus into the bush and hopefully the infinite depth and repetitive pattern you are looking for?
