Serviceberry Tree in Bloom

In the spring, the serviceberry is the first tree to bloom in our woods. After looking at the bleak early spring landscape for a long time, these trees look wonderful. Capturing a beautiful picture of them can prove a challenge however. This picture is the result of my attempts to do so.
 
I used shallow depth of field to isolate the closer branches from the blurred more-distant branches. Does it work? I'm not completely in love with the shot, but it does show what can be done with shallow depth of field.
 
Note the 1/8000 shutter speed. If your camera has a max shutter speed of 1/4000, you may need a neutral density filter to reduce the amount of light reaching the sensor to be able to shoot at f/1.4 in bright sunlight.
