A lovely and creative abstract Ann. I think I like V2 for that little sharper finish Smile

Fabulous idea and execution, Ann. I like V1 even better because of the toned down highlights.

Think V1 is my fave, I like the soft tonesGrin

Two quite different versions, Ann!
I think V2 with more contrast is the one for me today.
Excellent work.

I like both very much, though with a slight preference for V2 for the contrast.
And to think that I viewed the thumbnail as a 'classic spiral staircase' photo BlushBlushBlush

I love marmite to coin a phrase! Beautifully captured Ann, the more sensitive and delicate processing of v1 takes the day for me

I like both versions, and like your idea of making the lily into an abstract style, concentrating on the strength of the shapes and curls.
The shape is sometimes referred to as the Fibonacci Spiral, Ann.
This is a fairly good explanation that's illustrated and animated.
An image using this composition guideline doesn't need to look like a spiral, but the picture follows the cuves of the spiral, as in some pictures shown here .

A beautifully crafted composition, Ann. I particularly like the softness portrayed in version number one. Inventive and imaginative photography. Great to see.

A lovely abstract that suits your processing beautifully in both versions. So much so I can choose between them!

Love the abstract nature of the image.. v1 has the edge for me today.. Excellent

I've seen the Golden Ratio shape but wasn' t quite sure about how to apply it - so this has been a ueseful upload
apart from it's beauty and appeal Ann.
I do prefer V1 for the same reasons as nonur .

Very interesting seeing the difference when mousing back and forth, Ann. I prefer V1 for its finer and subtler detail and gradation.

That aside, this is a BEAUTIFULLY shot macro. The composition is wonderful Smile
