1st Place – Image of the Month
“Apple Pie” Linda Williams
The assigned category for May was Americana, so I thought what is more American than apple pie? I started out with a whole pie and took quite a few pictures but they didn’t speak to me. Then we ate a piece and decided to put one piece on a plate with a little ice cream on top. That is the one I picked. The pie and milk are on mirrors and I liked the reflections. The camera is a Nikon D5500 with a 18-300 mm lens. The photo was shot with ISO at 12,800 at 22mm F 3.5 at 1/4 second.
