I like the 'glow' effect in #1, and I also like the compositional layers created by the diagonal lines running through the image. But I feel the image is too bright, I'd rather see the grass closer to the mid-tone range like in the second image.
I'm still somewhat undecided on the second image. After first I didn't like it because the out-of-focus exposure isn't enough out of focus to become indistinguishable. So the initial is that this image looks more like a 'camera trick' than the first image. On the other hand, as I looked closer, there's a sort of swirling/radiating pattern here that I find interesting. I also like the placement of the colors within the composition, with the strong grouping of white flowers in the cornered surrounded by deep greens, and then the predominantly yellow flowers fanning out.
