Floral macros - please comment

If you wouldn't mind could you comment on the background colours?
Too bright, wrong colour, too plain or weird or maybe it works - please comment.
They were done with different materials and not Photoshop trickery.

Damn Brit

I like 5 best Jeff. The graduated green combined with the green of the flower stem works for me. It's a shame the tip of the blurred flower behind is cropped out on the extreme left and the top.

Thanks for the comment Gary. I guess the earth tones works best. Not a huge surprise, but I was just messing around with some different coloured backgrounds.

Here is the entire, uncropped version of #5. I should have been more careful when I cropped it originally.
