Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge (CCY): A well-composed photo

I like roses and so I took the first shot. They are so many. Does it look good? Truely speaking I was not sure. I chose one of them and took the second shot.

In the second shot my subject is strong but was the first one so bad then? Moreover can I call the second photo a well composed?  I am confused. I hope someone will help me understanding it more clearly. 🙂
