hi jamal, there was a black background and very low light. also 1.5 aperture underexposed. usual postprocessing. the red shining on the upper left becomes visible after resizing and saving to jpg (?).

Yes it is better

I think it is better because it is all in focus. The real close in pictures are more abstract than a flower photograph, which this is, and can have a dof which is limited.

The dark background does not conflict with the subject as does the white version.

In this image the flower fills the frame beautifully and the composition is attractive.

Excellent!! Much better than the other.. Flower and background work well together.
