Default Front Yard Bokeh

Hey guys and gals!

Nothing bizarre or creepy today, just some experimentation I wanted to get some feedback on.

As of lately I've fallen in love with Kim Kirkpatrick's photography and style, and it inspired me to play around with bokeh a bit.

These are taken in my front yard:







I think the first photo is prettier, but the second one has a much better quality bokeh effect.

Any thoughts?

He, heh, he...

But the first photo is not only "prettier," it's also interesting - Whereas the second, bokeh and all, is pretty boring.
