    If you adjusted the pictures in photoshop so they were of similar brightness this might be a better indication of which aperture looks better in this situation.

    The fact is you are asking us which picture out of 3 washed out and 1 underexposed looks better. IMO they are all shit.

    You might want to fill the frame with the flower more and go with a tighter crop. With flower shots, results tend to lean towards a larger aperture to reduce the depth of field. Just make sure you don't overexpose the shots like in the first 3 images.

    did you adjust the shutter speed in relation to the aperture?

    The first three are DEFINETELY washed out. The last one is a bit dark. And yes, the flower is too small considering the frame. If it's a big frame like that - then consider the background. Right now it's a bit dull - perhaps if it were some solid color, or other pretty flowers (throughout the entirety of the background), it'd be better... they're not good pictures.

    Gotta start somewhere, but you'll never learn w/o constructive criticism.

    I know second one is too bright.

    I don't edit any of my pics other than resizing. I have no idea how to do it properly yet.
