"Jazz It Up!" That's the theme from this year's Philadelphia Flower Show produced by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, featuring music and decor from New Orleans, LA. The show, held March 2-9, 2008, is the oldest and largest of its kind in the US. I took these photos on opening day, March 2nd. It was a challenge; the show was packed with people, and the contrasty lighting from mixed sources made getting photos difficult, to say the least. Tripods aren't allowed, so the VR (Vibration Reduction) feature of my 18-55mm lens played a very important role, as most exposures were 1/30 second or less. I was relatively pleased with the results, although it was time consuming to correct color.
