I thank everyone of you so, so much for your thoughtful words and your advice! I would have gotten back to you sooner, but I was away for the weekend.
As always, your suggestions are incredibly helpful--and Karl, I thank you for reworking my shots. Believe it or not, I actually had put in a blue background in the first shot, making the blue WB even more blue. I can't make up my mind about the second flower in the first shot. Part of me doesn't like it and part of me thinks it adds a kind of sculptural quality to the photo. I definitely think, as suggested, I need to fix the cropping in both the photos.
Again, a million thanks to all of you for taking the time to look, to respond, and to help.
