Hi Herman, this flower has your name written all over it, so to speak. I cannot choose between the two, both terrific.

Two excellent captures - however v2 is my choice - IMHO I would have cloned out the white area on the top of v1 as it draws the eye away from the lovely flower - this would then be the better shot

Well done Herman. V2 is beautiful, but V1 is my choice because of the unusual bluish background. I've uploaded a modification dealling with the white aerea and the noise. I hope you'll like it.

Two wonderfully refreshing floral images each stuffed with beautiful colour. For me it has to be image number two as I feel that image number one is rather noisy* and somewhat difficult to follow. You normally look at and read from left to right, so looking at your image from a different perspective simply does to feel right. Try flipping the image horizontally you will be rather pleased I am sure as to what a difference it makes.

*Please see the online tutorial for reducing noise in your photographs
