Here at the Fall Apple-Umpkin Festival in Wyoming, NY there were lots of festive fall produce for sale. Here were some Honey Crisp apples that were beautiful if not expensive.

At the Ringling Museum in Sarasota, Florida I had just walked out of the Roman Stone Graveyard and was headed over to the mansion when I smelled the sweet smell of some exotic fruit. To my left was a large thick tree just full of yellow, orange and green tinged fruit. It was a Starfruit tree. It had thousands of fruit on it an on the ground. I was tempted to pick some and eat, but they were not mine and they might frown on it. So I just took photos. I broke all the rules making this HDR image by hand holding for the image and shooting from the dark underside of the tree to the bright outside making the fruit much darker in appearance. This turned part of the branches red, but I did not alter them in post processing. For some reason even with a F/8 aperture and a 17 mm lens I still got some Bokeh effect. The odd word bokeh comes from the Japanese “boke” which means dizziness, blur or haze. Anyone feel dizzy?
