Yesterday I was at the SuperMarket and I saw this gorgeous "California Wonder" or "pepper seed", (I don´t know exactly the english name) and I thought: "I think this could be a great photo!"

What do you think?

Hi Carla..nice sharp shot of this pepper...nicely composed.


Olá Carla,
A textura, DOF, cor e luz estão magníficas! Um belo registo.
Fica bem,

Hi Carla
Great macro of this nice fruit, brilliant colors and excellent light control and metering, agree with sharpness adding.
Regards, Alireza.

delicious photo

Hi Carla,

You did great composing part of this pepper . . Excellent exposure and angle of capturing it . .
I like you utilize ambient light to get this natural image . .
Great shot my dear friend ..


Many thanks for your kind words on Flow .

Hellew Carla,

Good texture and lighting, even the colour is wonderful. I like it.


Reminds me of the Californication / Red Hot Chili Peppers album.
The paprika (as it is named in Dutch) looks very shiny.
However, in spite of the abundance of red, there seem to be some green/yellow cast in the image.

Greetings, Carla -
Very nice image with warm colors. I like the soft highlights on the rounded crown of the pepper. Good idea to compose the shot like this. Well done.

Hello Carla,

Have a look at Westons B&W photos of peppers, very inspirational.

Então a menina anda virada para os vegetais.
Bom trabalho,agoera é só juntar uma batatitas um peixito e tens uma caldeirada.:)

Eu ando a estudar uma maneira de fazer um estúdio caseiro para este género de fotos de maneira a eliminar as luzes que se vêem no motivo.

Well, then... You bought it and took it back home to shot it´s picture, right? Or did you shoot it at the market place?
Well, anyway, very nice pic!
Pimentão em nosso belo português?

For some reason, I look at it and get this medieval feeling, like it was taken in the present, but the image was of the past.

Might be the colours. I really like it alot, especially the way you composed it. The folds of the cloth in the background seem to be a tribute/juxtaposition of the folds near the stalk.


Ola Carla,
Belo trabalho,foto perfeita,otima composicao,cores,foco,luz,nota dez.

Great composition, with the pepper anchored securely in the frame and against the dark background. Love the rich vibrant colors and the light glow. Well done!

Hello Carla. I think you have captured this pepper so beautifully with the light from the left exposing the shape well. You have darkened the background well in bringing out the rich strong color of the subject. Thanks for sharing and best regards. Jusni

Hermos detalle, gramn iluminacion, intenso color buen POV. TSF

Hi Carla,

What a GREAT composition & the right use of lighting! Beautiful!

I wish you had included whole of the stem. However, the colour and the mood is great. Somehow very sensuous.

i think you are correct, a nice and colorful subject and you captured it well, lighting is excellent, placement of subject, congrats

Hi Carla,
Beautiful study on shadows and light! The setting of the light is effective and the tight crop too! I love this irridiscent red against the dark blurred background! Bravo! Annie

PS/ You have an interesting and beautiful variety of photos in your gallery

Hello Carla
Il est splendide ton poivro et j'aime beaucoup ton cadrage et le la couleur foncée du fond contraste bien avec le rouge
excellente netteté


The pepper looks perfect, too good to eat! Nice shot.

Excellent exposure and angle of capturing.Like this Photo, Good Colours and Lighting,

It's a fine robust example of a "bell pepper", there might be a California variety. Good color and sharpness. The light is perfect and I'm wondering what that background is.
Well done,

  • Great
