    I really like flower pics, and these look good to me, i really like the 3rd one, also. love the yellow with the black center

    the 4th one seems a little washed out...not sure how to put it but like there is a lot of yellow nothing for my eye to focus on maybe? not sure

    Have you tried to use the histogram on your camera?

    I am not sure what camera you are shooting, but get the manual out and read about access to the histogram. It can help you from shooting shots like the last one posted here.

    The histogram gives you an idea about your exposure, it shows how much of a specific shade of darkness (lightness) is in the picture. Black is on the left, white is on the right. If you have a lot of dark shades, the histogram will have a hump on the left. If you have a lot of light shades, the hump will be on the right. A properly exposed photo will be somewhere in the middle.

    Here is one site that helps with the histogram.
