I like it before more, WR. In my opinion, you oversaturated the image, it looks artificial. Unless, of course that you intended that effect.
The original is an excellent capture, you might want you give it just a tad of contrast, a another bit of saturation and maybe (just maybe) sharpness. But I mean, just a tad of each.
I like the color of the border, it enhances the image.

I am wondering if the purple tinting at the edges of the flowers is in the flower, or an artifact (purple fringing). Either way, it enhances the imagery and color of the photo. I go along with Marian, and prefer V1.

At first I preferred v1 but after flicking to v2 then v1 found that the seed heads stand out better on v2. lovely shot!

As an admirer of your work WR, I really understand and appreciated you creative methodology when your transform what can be a rather lack lustre image and transform it into something of immense beauty and charm. However on this occasion I feel that the original image is the far superior and does not in my opinion warrant such a makeover. Your choice of processing seems to have taken the colour to a new level, and at the same time it has added quite a lot of noise which in turn is rather distracting and uncomfortable on the eyes. "Sorry mate"

Today I prefer V2 Red - I like the darker more subtle b/g an dth flowers looking more punchy.
Amazing image from some dandelions!!

I like version 2 too, and I must challenge tour I/D. This isn't a dandelion, its is a Hawksbeard.

I have promising myself that I would take the camera with me on the regular dog walk to capture the Hawksbeards in flower but guess what? They went into puffball seed heads then dispersed their seeds in 24 hours. Serves me right for vacillating!
