Regardless of the scores and ultimate outcome, getting some feedback will help you. If you still have a couple bottles of each I'd suggest this:
1) On the day of judging, pull your bottles out and get a BJCP score sheet and Guidelines printout and give your beers an objective judging. Let the beers warm up a bit first. I know many competitions, the beers will be sitting out at room temp for several hours. Most judges want the beers warmer (especially the styles you submitted) so that the flavors and aroma aren't masked by the cold.
2) When you get the score sheets back, pull another bottle out and see if you can detect what they detected.
