Flowering Fruit Trees

Ahh, new card reader got here today and I was finally able to unload about 2 gigs of RAW files from my card. Not only that, I was able to finally EDIT some RAW files on my computer and get the best results I'm capable of again.

Aperture: f/8
Shutter Speed: 1/20
ISO: 100
Focal Length: 100mm

I hadn't realized just how dependent I've grown on using RAW whenever possible. I love it. Anyway, we have a flowering plum tree in my front yard that will probably be cut down this summer, so I wanted some photos. Besides, it looks really good this time of year. Once again I can thank my dad and his macro lens.

Also, I'm pretty proud to say that the thought of cropping this photo didn't even cross my mind during editing. I think I'm finally starting to get better at framing things. The more things I can get right in-camera, the better.


  1. Gorgeous!! Every time you post a photo that was taken with your dad's macro lens, I start to drool.

  2. How nice that you are a "canon" family :) Love the blossoms - sad that the tree is getting cut down :( I like the DoF and the bokeh on camera left. Very nice!

  3. Excellent blossoms!! I'm glad you could use RAW format again, it makes a huge difference.
