Great still life picture.

Persimmons are quite delicious once they are ripe. If eaten early (at least some varieties) will put serious "sweaters on your teeth."

Lovely still life, Herman. I can always spot your photo on a page among other photos.

this is your best table top ever. the green knife is an extra with a smile, so well set up.
Which persimmons are these? they look different from ours which are hachiya persimmon.
Oh yes, thanks for the information about the wild fig.
(I heard from a south african client that in ZA the internet used to be as bad as here, but there it got better and here it is soooo slow that I'm still using me mobile 3g connection!)

Excellent use of the green knife, Herman, the colour contrast is beautifully discordant. Never tried one of these fruit, I have a feeling the ones in our local Sainsburys won't taste the same as these!!

Very tempting. Its underexposed, and increasing exposure makes quite a difference. I would de saturate that knife as its really staeling the show as it is. Good effort though. Mod uploaded.

How beautiful.. lovely colour. I don't know if it is Chinese or not.. I used to have them a lot when I was in Beijing. They are different sizes, some of them quite large. It should be, could be very soft, Oh.. I can't remember nowGrin

I'm sure we do get these in our supermarkets but can't remember tasting one!
A wonderful photogenic fruit - good with one cut - something a judge told me I should have done in a still life of fruit.
