Breaking Rule #2 (redo). Keep the center of interest in sharp focus

I was out today on my bike ride and I decided to try to break this rule again. We have all found this one difficult. I decided to try something EXTREME. I wanted to take advantage of the rich summer colors here and to use that as the center of interest of my photo, thus eliminating the need to keep ANYTHING in focus! I was'nt too sure how it would come out, and it was with my little S1 rather than my SLR (which I don't take on bike rides).

Please let me know what you think of these. I like them, but I know most people HATE out of focus pictures! These are straight from the camera, except for a simple resize to 800x600:

I'm not a big fan of out-of-focus shot per se, but the first one here is quite pleasing. I think this is because there is some framing by the purple blooms and the red bloom is placed in between. I'm afraid that I find the composition in the second one a little 'empty', as this framing does not exist.
