These are beautiful flowers and must admit I like #1 its 'bolder' and really stands out... the tone mapping seems to be working a treat.... well done you for trying something different, always a pleasure to see something 'out of the ordainary' so keep 'em coming.

Tremendous energy for a flower shot. This fairly explodes out of that rich background.

Lovely shot and the technique works well with this image, although I think I prefer V2 as it looks more delicate.
