While at Donna Nook I spotted this interesting textured cabbage...the Savoy (Capitata var. sabauda L.). In the supermarket they're normally less interesting, but a farmer sells fresh produce at the car park field of Donna Nook. You also find sprouts on the stem etc.

I thought it would make in interesting photo so bought one for just 50p

I placed it on a plastic table and backlit it with my home made ring light. The centre of the cabbage was dark so I lit that with the Joby Gorilla Torch. Exposure was 8 seconds at f/22 with ISO400 (I forgot to set that back to ISO100!) on the Olympus Pen E-P2 with 14-42mm lens.


I tend not to do too much Photoshop on the blog pics but think this one will need a bit of cloning to fill in the bright white corners with more bright green leaves. I cropped a bit to lose some as the original has most of the outer leaves showing too.

I thought for a moment that you had taken the Ladies in your Team down to London for afternoon tea Wink

The backlit leaves look just like those when I am steaming them. The steam brings out the colour and textures excellently !
