Thought I'd throw these up, see what others think could make them better.

Don't like the lighting on the first one. Between harshness and being almost directly behind the flower, it just kills too much of the color.

For #2, straightening the horizon is an easy fix. A tougher fix is to make sure you get the bottom of the plant in the frame. I've missed it too and kicked myself later (and 3 states away), but it does make a difference. Also, it's a vertical subject, but with the broad expanse behind, I think the horizontal framing works. Just push your flower one way or the other to the third.

And one more piece of advice from my last flower shots - when you are getting down to flower level, watch out for the prickly pear.
