Drove down to Reynolds, Georgia today to enjoy the Georgia Strawberry Festival. I had submitted ten photos to the amateur photo contest. All my photos were displayed and one, "Strawberry Liqueur" won a big blue First Place ribbon in the Strawberry category! I was going for elegance exploiting my experience with macro photography. Fortunately, I happened to find a perfect strawberry among my breakfast fruit that was just the right size to fit inside my liqueur glass. Since this was a close-up, I had to use focus stacking, combining eleven incrementally focused photos to get the whole image in focus. My genuine love of strawberries has paid off. I think I'll plant some strawberries this year.
You can see all the photos that were shown at the festival on my homepage slide show.
