I do like this one more than the two earlier posts. While the quality of the capture in all of them is good, what makes me prefer this is the composition. I like the two implied diagonals, the soft bokeh (I have no objection to the white blur in the BG) and the simplicity of the single open and focused blosssom. I think, as suggested by an earlier critique, that I would also prefer a small crop from the top - it seems to emphasise the dominant flower.
