Apple blossom

Apple blossom in my back yard.
Walking around the garden this afternoon I couldn't help but be drawn by the apple blossom. Selecting my 50mm lens with a wide aperture, to lessen the depth of field, I took a couple of shots.

We'd been pretty ruthless with the pruning of this tree and I wasn't really expecting to get many apples this year.  To see the blossom on the old tree was a welcome surprise.

The second shot in this post is a tight crop with the focussed blooms placed on a golden section.  I was quite taken with the second set of blooms off to the left of the shot ... I thought it helped give a bit more interest and depth to the shot.  Perhaps let me know what you think?
