I like these, but with the green ranunculus I'm having trouble with the transition between the tight, smooth, object-filled curves of the inner flower and the loose, graffiti-like depiction of its outer ruffles. Maybe I'd find it more convincing if some of the inner flower layers were a bit more scalloped as they transitioned toward the outer layers. As it is, the inner layers of the green ranunculus and the pink one at lower right seem the same, so the suddenly irregular outer ruffle of the green one confuses me a bit.

I might also like the background a bit better if it were in a contrasting color, rather than the same color as many of the flowers themselves. Then again, my favorite part of visiting the ranunculus fields in Carlsbad is when I spot a flowers of an unauthorized color in one of the sections.
