Default Apricot Blossoms

Here is a picture I took of some apricot blossoms this spring. This came from my first round of pictures with a DSLR (Nikon D5000). I really liked this one. What do you think?

Hi Soup - nice simple composition, I like it. What makes it for me is the red 'under petals' (or whatever they're called) and the nice subtle whites and sky (which isn't just 'blue').

Musket - topaz did a nice job of improving it.

i like this shot.

I think this kind of shot could handle more aggressive levels to make it pop

I'm another who liked the shot but thought it was a bit soft or something. Clean sure did a nice job of dealing with that, without making it look over-processed. I'm impressed.
