First of all, as a general point regarding all three, you have taken them in strong bright sun and this has caused an awkward, clumsy-looking shadow over the leading petal in V1, plus some exposure problems. Flowers are quite reflective, subdued light is easier! Or get someone to hold a diffuser for you.
I like what you have attempted in V1. The colour balance is unusual and effective, as is the tilt of the flower. A couple of suggestions - it needs more space on the left and maybe less on the right, you've clipped the tip of the petal on the left, it looks cramped there. And it would be improved, I think, by cloning out that soft bud in the background, along the bottom of the frame. I would also tone down the light patch of flower at the back, simply because it's a bit distracting when that area should recede into background. I'll try a Mod.
V2 is a brave, adventurous composition but just a bit too tight at the bottom I think - where that lower petal arches up there needs to be a little more background visible, to make better use of the curve. And it's rather overexposed.
V3 is attractive but run of the mill, less interesting.

Mod uploaded. Working on V1 I really appreciated the balance you have captured between two curves, the stigma and the lower left petal. That gives a graceful dancing feel.
Thank you Moira, much improved Mod.. and thank you for the critique GrinGrin
