Two beautiful studies of this rather beautiful and delicate Dandelion Clock. Version 1 for me looks somewhat claustrophobic, so I shall opt for Version 2.

Can't decide if I want to feel claustrophobic or not...
A contrasty b&w could be interesting here.

Yes, V3 works for me, I might even go for more contrast - do you use the black and white eye-droppers in Levels? Worth a try here, particularly on the black. (I very rarely use this procedure for colour, but for b&w it can transform an image!)
Thanks for the pm.
Moira

Excellent detail, Ann: can't choose a favourite, like 'em all, so 1/3 vote to each.

V4 is rather more extreme than I intended - I'd apply the black eye-dropper to the darker bits bottom left or top right - they're not quite true black, I'd just want to intensify them while keeping some sense of texture. It's a lovely image to experiment witth!
