Beautiful presentations, George, but for me, V.2 gets the vote, superb dof. The blossom is looking wonderful at present, though badly affected by the very strong winds we have been getting for a nonth now. Carol

The white on blue has the impact, George, but I do like the 3D nature of the differential focus in v2.
