Hi Herman, this is a very nice photo. Very good focus and expopsure, nice colors. My vote goes to V2, because of the background.
Have a nice day, George

Neither have I seen this colour, Herman. I think they are both nicely composed images, but the surrounding deep green leaves around makes V2 appear better.

V1 for me, better light, and beautiful detail on those curly petals.
I've seen this colour hibiscus growing in England, but then I do tend to stare a lot at other peoples' gardens. Whilst taking pictures of some this colour in a garden on Hayling Island, the owner came out (I thought I'd get the "what are you doing?") and offered me a drink of water for my dogGrin!
