Pruning young plum tree

This is the first time I tried to prune a young plum tree.
It had 2 long branches going up in the middle.
Can you have a look at the photos before/after whether I did it right or I should prune it more?

    I think it will be OK, I would get a stake in though as they have a tendency to curl over once the tree is a few years old you'll have lots of fruits and a main branch will split or even the base of the tree.

    Thanks for the help. Hopefully I'll have a crop this year.
