I like the bouquet and, as usual, the focus and exposure are impeccable. But I don't care for either shot. On the first photo, the flowers should be in a different vase (that vase might work with desert wild flowers, but just seems to clash with this bouquet) and the background should be less present. (the background says funeral home to me, which is probably not what you were going for) On the second photo, I just don't see the lens effect as being appropriate here.

Thank you both for your suggestions. Can't re-do because my wife was taking the arrangement to a friend at work -- as she frequently does.
