I hope you could share with me which presentation works the best. They are all the same flower, taken one right after the other. I'm mostly asking for input into which exposure compliments the subject best. Of course I'll appreciate all feedback on the merit of my work, but again, I'm trying to key in on framing the subject best.....THANKS

Although each photo has a particularly good aspect, my preference is #2. Number one, while I like seeing all the flower has too much infocus background which weakens the flower. Number 3 is off center showing what looks like poppies, a completely different flower. I see no reason to give space for those extra flowers, thus I prefer #2. Now number 2 has probably a few rules that have been broken, but I only go by my eyes. I can see the shape and look of a petal of the flower so no need to really have to see the rest. So the cropping doesnt bother me. And the flower has very nice rich colors. I like the yellow and red contrast. Nice job.

I noticed the bozos on DCResource picked #3 but I still prefer #2.
