Floral Friday, flowers in a nearby yard and today's dahlia

Please scroll down to see today's dahlia, , from Swan Island Dahlias.

I like the contrast of the blossoms and leaves. They're in a front yard around the corner. Do you think the three bright green leaves sticking out above the lower greenery detract from the look of the photo?

I wish they weren't there myself. I've cropped and treated it differently with Picnik.
Which one do you like best, please?

Today's dahlia, Kidd's Climax. Facts from Swan Island Dahlias--Bloom: 10" Pink and Cream Blend, Bush: 3 1/2'

I prefer the first of the two pictures - I think I like the way the flowers are set better.
