I think I like the rich colour in the previous post but this one is very pretty also! :)

I think I like the softness in this one.. though I did just look at the other. Nature in general is more beautiful.. but maybe because it's late and I am tired this softness appeals to me :)

I like how you bravely let us see the alternatives you are applying : it is a reminder that there is so much more than often meets the eye with your work. That some of us prefer the previous and others this version (and that I think I'd like to see them combined!) lets us further enjoy the process.

Lovely...I'm with Ronnie. I'd love to see a third version with the two images layered together. Good work!

Am just loving how the stem almost completely disappears. Gorgeous softness to this one.

On my browser and screen, I prefer the vivid contrast of the first image -- the bright color on green background. But, I can see how it could be "too much" on a different screen.

You have captured fall with the texture and color of the leaves. I've just come in for a quick break after digging up my dahlia tubers, and your photos are a treat. We have similar plants, but you have such an eye for composition and light.
