1/500s @ f/6.3 (no flash)
36.5 mm lens, ISO 100
I metered the exposure for this photo off the trunk, to pick up the detail. Because the trunk was so reflective the exposure was very short, which made the sky a rich, deep shade of blue. No polarizer was used.
The judge in the KSCC competition liked the unusual viewpoint, the detail in the trunk, and the leading line up to the point of interest at the top of the stalk. He didn't give it an award, though!
