Bean Blossom 01



Bean Blossom 02



Tomato Plant



I tried to get a good shot of the basil tops that need to be pinched, but it was harder than it should have been to pull off. Plus I really hope they are not too far gone for pesto. :grumpy:

Thanks Charlie! I love 1 and 2! Naughty bean blossoms! That's pretty good for a flower that looks like a dog face.

4 is just making me mad, I spend a lot of time hunched over that basil. It seems like there is a shot of it that should be able to work, but I couldn't get it to work for me. Grump grump.

Hey. Thanks again for the noiseware suggestion. Totally changing my level of happiness with ye olde entry level nikon!

I'm with Charlie, that first one, nice ;)
I like the light and lines in the bean shots, the light in that first one, yum.
The tomato, I'm almost on board with, I like how the light is caught in the one leaf and the lines but I think the composition is weak somehow. I converted it to b&w to isolate and enhance the lines and cropped closer to eliminate the brightest highlight on the left and it helps a bit, it's close though!
The last one I'm not feeling, this busy, tight, round subject is brutal to compose, perhaps a LOT closer to simplify and isolate lines at that magnification?

Here is the edit I played with, it is a far departure from the others but thought you might like.

But but.. I don't see your B&W.

BTW while I was fighting with the stupid basil, all I could think was Pixel Rabbit would make the shot work. I tried to channel you, but no luck!:lol:


ETA: OH! That is MUCH nicer!

Ha! Mish, I tried, but it turns out those bean blossoms are ephemeral little suckers.


I found this on the leaf below.

And above, where the blossom had been... a bean.

What do you think of that?


Meanwhile squirrel junior (the elder) was busy picking all the green cherry tomatoes.

Yes please!

BTW, I know you aren't impressed with the new little green bean, but maybe you'll be more impressed if you knew it would grow to be a yard long! :shock::biglaugh:

Totally a different image.

It's all about the angle of the dangle!
