It works for me. Very nice. Watch out for PAFA ( People against flower abuse ).

Works for me, too. You are right, the inside of the tulips are very interesting, and this way you can show it without looking down on it.

I like it also but since the objective seems to be viewing the inside, I would expect that part to be the sharpest, or at least sharp. It may just be me but that seems to be the least sharp part of the image.

The stripped petal doesnt do it for me. If you remove it then I think you should make it a macro shot and get in there so it looks like you are inside the flower rather than seeing it from a distance with a petal stripped off.

I like this a lot... I just would give it a little more space around the flower and stem... just my perspective... love the colours, absolutely outstanding... THANKS!!!

These are some nice shots... but can you tell me what light source and background you use? When it comes to shots like this, I'm a complete noob

This is my reaction as well. The second shot is a lot better, but getting even closer would work.
