The second one (34KB) is not as good. The focus is off here as it should, in my opinion, be on the above part of the image which is the most interesting. It really doesn't look all that sharp to me where it should be. I am not a huge fan of the composition either. Try shooting from a higher position or down into the flower to include more of the middle of it. I do however like the colour of the out of focus area.
The third is pretty well composed. I agree with Kenny though that the colours are rather dull and uninspiring, particularly behind the flower on the green petals rather than on the flower itself. Perhaps due to flash again? If you are lucky enough to have a macro lens, try getting in closer to the flower and fill the frame as it looks like an interesting flower. Is it a rhododendron?
Hope this helped.
