When you are taking pictures you can change everything with the angle you are shooting and the light you shoot in. The time of day always makes a big difference. These were taken as the sun was rising.
For these pictures I was using my Canon 100 mm 2.8 L Macro lens. I love the detail this lens gives me.
I like shooting in the early morning light. In these pictures the dew on the flowers is amazing and the petal edges really stand out.
Try taking some flower pictures using different angles and see which angle you like the best.
