    Word of my photography is getting around town, and I have been invited to set up a display of my work at the Annual Blossom Festival here in Niagara. Our farmland here is well known for its fruit production, and the Niagara Fruit Institute is putting on a show. They want my bird pics up on display, and for sale, and they are asking me to do some blossom photography to produce posters for the event.

    I went out last night to do some preliminary work, to find out what they might like.. here goes!

    It was a bit breezy when we went out in the orchards, and no tripod this time, so the quality isn't great IMO.. But any help or suggestions would be cool.

    Wow these are great.... Question!

    What were your settings to gethe background in such a blur? Usually when I do it the background is still noticable, but blury where yours here you cant even tell much of whats there...

    HUGE Congrats to you as well!!

    Why are all your shots so good? Do you have some sort of mystical power?

    Congrats, your accolades are well deserved. :thumbsup:
