I like #1. Good colors, having it slightly larger then the frame gives the impression of being zoomed way in (which also happens to be the reality). Maybe a little more lighting to reduce the shadowing between petals? Not to eliminate it, but just to reduce it a tad.
As for #2, I just don't like photos of peoples eyes, so I wont be commenting. Not that its a bad photo, its just that photos of eyes kind of gross me out for one reason or another....
Someone add close-ups of eyeballs to that thread that got everyone started on what we don't want to see photos of!
I'm another one of those that just gets kinda creeped out by looking at an eyeball that close...guess it's good thing I'm not an optha...opta...eye doctor.
The rose is nice, though. Good focus, interesting rich color.
Nice shots, Res! Flower looks good... and I happen to think that eyes are extremely beautiful. They have such interesting textures and colors. As Megan pointed out, you focus was off a hair (get it? Off a hair! lol! I crack myself up!)... but still a nice shot. You will find that practice helps with this also. There is no Exif in your photos.. what did you shoot these at?
