Another good shot of a centaurea.

Might be worth trying manual focus...or altering the aperture to change the depth of field so that the petals are slightly sharper.

Great contrast between the blue/purple and green!

Like the way you've captured the tips and subsequently cropped and framed it, though for me it needs the centre of the flower in focus as well.

Nice colours here Sully. Needs stopping down a bit if you want more of the flowerhead in focus.

Love the colour contrast with this.
If you still struggle with focus ( as i am no expert on macro and wouldn't no what is possible with your setup) all round, then take two exposures 1 for outer and 1 for inner focus and combine them in P.S.
Anyway i like how this looks, works for me.
