Keen eyes but highlights are a bit blown. I think the second shot is potentially good but you have to work with the colors and the framing is a bit tight.

There are focus issues but this is not bad at all.

G'day again USC

Several things for you matey ... as you have now received a bunch of feedback from others, and as a fellow Panny user - at least you've started out with the 'right' sort of kit :)

Your camera's lens is a short-zoom, which does mean that for much of the time, the backgrounds will often intrude against the subject. Maybe more use of max-zoom will concentrate the eye onto the subject ~ along with "A" aperture mode to use mid-range apertures around F8 to get a tad more depth-of-field across the flower

Also, I find with flowers that a tiny bit of underexposure deepens the colours slightly - try setting the exposure +/- button to minus 2/3EV and see how that goes for you

and finally for the moment - on your Panny you have an 'creative' features option (not found on many other cameras, esp dSLR cameras). Investigate these options for some 'creatively different' visions for everyday subjects ~ you might be surprised :)

Hope this helps

You can always start with working out the composition of the shot. Try different angles.

Would you be so kind, Carl, to put a finger on it?

Light is free… capturing it is not!

He (Carl) is wrong, but you (NS) already know that.

The histograms show that the top end is fine. Whether the images have been processed in a way that is optimal, that's open for discussion (they're JPGs out of the camera, for crying out loud). Considering the light, I'd have gone a different way.

But there are no blown highlights in any of the above images.

Yes, I do. I was only KINDLY suggesting Carl to 
reconsider his comment and not confront him.

That's for perspectives, not facts. Correcting misinformation is not unkind. In fact, it as service to others that my not not be as knowledgeable.

My comments above are factual, and based on an analysis of available data. Now, I could be wrong, but it'd be necessary to illustrate where I went awry by using facts.
