You have noticed one difference mainly and that is the amount of light on the consumer photo. I have no qualms about which one prefers, but don't be fooled by the amount of light .
it is a common error we all make, if something is brighter attracts more than something dark, so looks better.
Clarity (sharpness) is often overlooked but can make a huge difference in some photos such as pictures of faces it really shows up
If you look again the main bunch of flower heads stand out more from the back ground (called depth of field) in the pro photo. I would ask you which you consider the sharper photo if you look at the flower heads enlarged.
One thing I learnt was to actually look at things and not just seeing them. By this I mean "OH that is a Nice flower" against seeing the height it has grown, the shape of the petals- the colour of the petals- the formation of the flower - how it is situated etc etc. that is looking not just seeing
This is the one you didn't like but brighter to prove my point
