Pumpkin contest

I had a crazy week at work, thus a long blog break. There was just no time and energy for both. The summer-long project is done, so I have no more excuses. I am sorting through the photographs I took yesterday at Iowa State Fair. By far the best fair in US, or so I heard. 6 hours walking, and about 300 photographs. Hard to choose something cool for a blog, though.
One of my State Fair assignments for myself as to shoot wide-open at the vegetable display. I wanted to have a colorful, but blurry background for my subject. What did not work for me was the distance from which I could focus, which I didn’t notice until I looked at the images on the computer. But I think this one is my favorite.
