V2 the original for me Isabel, the large crop has softened the image a bit to much on V1, there are some great tone and textures on the original.

Lovely colour, good detail, like both, as you get a better look at the beetle in v1, and the flower in v2 ... Carol GrinGrinGrin

v2 for the sharpness, composition and inclusion of the bug. v1 I think would be better without the bug as a flower abstract. Wouldn't be able to choose between them then.
