Too much attention on the stems. The flower should be the main subject of the image.

5 - Very nice. Criticism; the pots(?) in the background detract but only slightly. Perhaps a different angle (and composition variation), trying to eliminate them, may have made this even better in my opinion. Seems fairly good contrast control on the whites, although overall this seems a little 'dark', but difficult to adjust given the whites I imagine.
