Gorgeous lighting. Beautifully shot. Excellent DoF and clarity. My preference if for the v1... I find the BG colouring very complimentary to the subject.

What 2 super images but I prefer V2 because of the light BG it gives a more delicate look

I'm not sure which one i prefer, pink and grey work so well together, but the white version really makes it stand out. Nice one! Melissa

V2 is my preference.I think the gradient is a little dark for the delicate colour of the Gerbera,you could fade it a little more perhaps.
Be a little careful when selecting the subject as I think you have left some of the original white bg on the bottom petals & around the stem.Not easy to do when replacing a lighter bg with a much darker one,try a little touch of feathering or check your selection using the quick mask mode in P/shop.
I did a quick mod to try & show you what I mean.

lovely flower shot, i like the colour of the flower, very nice shade of pink, i prefer V2 as not sure about the colour, i think the grad would work better with the light at the oposite corner so that the heavier part of the colour is at the bottom of the frame, in v1 theres is some white haloing visible around the petals giving the gerbera a "too sharp" effect. a tip you could try, when in photoshop , and you have your flower selected using the appropaite tool, you could go into "refine edge" in select menu i think, and you can give the selection an extra bit of feathering,

hope it helps, but still well taken and well done for the work on the image, G
