Hi, Logan!
I'd prefer the last one. It seems you wanted to discover more of the virtues of a shallow DOF at the largest aperture of 2.8 your camera allows. Yet it somehow seems to be out of focus. At least some parts of the daisy shoud have been so sharp that it could not be achieved with a smaller aperture which on the other hand allows an extended DOF. Yet It seems it is not any better at 3.2. I'd recommend you to turn off the intelligent auto multi point focus and rely on central or (MF) manuel focus feature of your camera. Besides, selecting the central weighted or spot metering instead of evaluative or pattern as metering mode would result in a significantly more decent exposure with your images. Ah, another point to consider is both the first and the last photos are shot at an exposure time of 1/30 which is not very advisable for handheld shots.
Blunt enough? Or there's the 'harsh mode':G

Dreamy..with attractive capitulum. One ceases looking for sharpness with this one. I feel you are on the right path to elysia! Maybe you should work on bigger portions or full scale.
