It's unbelievably true how wonderfully graceful flowers these prickly plants produce, and all under impossible conditions... I'd favour the first shot. I think you might enhance the distinction of the flowers by selecting them to sharpen and to increase their midtones at the PS. Or just ignore, nothing to bother about!
