    Just an opinion, but I still like the first better. The color is better, and the red tip of the bulb is positioned further down. There's just enough red in the background and the tip of the bulb to form a complimentary color scheme, that to me doesn't create conflict, but draws the eye to view the scene as a whole, as opposed to parts. The angular line formed by the leaf and the bulb itself draws the eye right into to the image terminating at the red tip.

    Wow, "Pre-visioning" ... that's the first time I've seen you use that word. One of the benefits of previsualization, is that it can be used to gauge your skill. The closer you get to capturing your previsualized image in-camera and the more consistently you become at capturing the previsualized image in-camera, the greater your skill, hence the better your photography.

    You are an artist. The pink tip in #2 points to something out of the photo, which, to my eye isn't good. The pink tip in #1 points to the background ... the tip actually has something to point at/to.

    Haven't decided if it's artist or OCD! Certain things just stand out, be it shapes, colors, or alignments.

    I just can't make my mind up about which I like better. Each has nice points, but I have to say the bulb is really beautiful and deserves to be the focal point. The green in it looks like fingers cupping the white portion. Nicely done!

    I like the first shot more. If anything, I might gently dodge that large dark area in the LRC a little bit, to maybe bring up just a touch more of the background stalks. The second one seems framed too tightly at the top, too much tension.
