Spring finally arrives

There's a flowering tree that has been in my front yard since we moved in.  Every so often the local utility company comes and chops the the top off it so it won't hit their wires.  It's not much when you look at it from far away:

The scene

But when you walk right up to it, and look up at its sunlit blossoms against the blue sky, suddenly it looks amazing.  I hope these pictures can do it justice.  Below, three are from the same point and I'd really like to know which one (landscape, portrait, or cropped portrait) you like better.

#1

#2

#3: pink on blue

Most of the pictures had a color temp of about 5250.   This one was significantly out, and I pulled it back to match the others in ACR.  Some of the other pictures are basically as shot, just developed with ACR.

Here are the three shots from the same point:

Landscape

Portrait

and

crop of portrait

My wife likes the uncropped portrait view better.  I am not so sure.  Comments?

All were shot with the kit lens, at about f/5 (except the first one is at f/4).
