A common rule for flower photography is to not shoot down on flowers, because that's the way we normally see them. Instead, try another view. In the first shot, I'm at eye level with the flowers, but in the second shot, I thought I'd try something different, and put the camera on the ground to shoot up at them. The problem at first was the bright sky in the background made silhouettes out of the flower shapes, so I added and flash, and got a pretty dramatic effect.
