Just came back from a wonderful day in Shiroi city. We were invited to a Nashi Pear farm and had the opportunity to pick some pears and enjoy eating them, they are exquisite. I am very happy with this photo because I helped picking some of the pears in the composition and also because I love the vividness of colors.
I am very pleased with the Camera Profiles from Adobe, it is currently in beta but looks promising, this is the first photo where I use the camera profiles inside Lightroom 2 and you can see a great change in how the colors are handled, before I used to have the camera calibration on ACR 4.4 and I always found difference in how the photo is displayed in the Camera and how it is displayed in Lightroom.
The nashi pear, Pyrus pyrifolia, is sometimes called the Asian pear. It has been also called the Japanese pear, Korean pear or Taiwan pear, as well as sand pear, apple pear, bapple, papple, and bae, from the Korean (배) or li (梨) in Chinese. In India is it called nashipati and in Bangladesh and Nepal it is called nashpati. Nashi pears are widely grown for their sweet fruit, a popular food in East Asia. They are sweet on the tree and are eaten crisp or else bletted.
