If this is your 1st attempt at macro then very well done.
version 3 is the best, V1 doesn't have enough depth of field.

I like your choice of wide aperture to create something delicate in V1.
V2 is another very good close-up of this beautifull flower.

"Sigma 18 - 55 mm with Macro Lens Attached" I didn't know that you can attach a macro lens to 18-55mm ?! What kind of macro lens attached? Louise this is so nice! excellent macro sets, during 98-2005 I used to be a florist, you have reminded me of some good memories... Thank you.

These phalos are hard to photograph. I like the idea of the very limited focus in v1. Works well.
