[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends in TN,

This is a giant type captured in the forest of Batu Pahat, Perlis. Locally it is known as asin-asin gajah.
The leaves of the smaller species (sweet leaf bush) is popular vegetable in Malaysia especially Borneo although I have never seen anyone actually plant this for consumption or for commercial purpose.

Thanks for viewing!

Salam Jusni,
excellent presentation of this lovely fruits vegies.
I like the way you let the water droplet hang onto the fruit.
There is a great element of suspense.
Beautiful view like the stereotyped cherries, only its green.

Hello Jusni,
Special fruist from a tree I didn't know. They seem to be used as vegetable in other countries. I like the way you present them in a vertical composition and with the beautiful green-black contrast created by use of flash. Nice to have caught one with a water-drop.
Kind regards

Good day friend Jusni. What an interesting plant with the gorgeous name asin-asin gajah.
That name only deserves a thousand points! Bravo. Despite the dramatic effect of your settings I feel that this image is very much underexposed. As a result some shadow detail has been lost completely. I would suggest to push bravely your ISO settings to 800! The NikonD80 can handle with easy that number. Why f/16, friend Jusni? You can achieve perfect depth of field with the current 60mm lens at f/8 for example. Have a lovely evening and greetings from the far, far South Africa!

I love the simplicity of this shot against the black background. The detail is excellent. Great shot.


Very striking macro caapture MF Jusni!
Great usage of the flash with great DOF creating a dark BG.
The background also provides good contrast and separation.
The water droplets really enhances the compositon in an aesthetic way. Impressive work MF!
TFS and have a nice evening!


Hello Jusni,
Great capture with fantastic details, lovely colours and excellent focus.
The contrast between background and this very interesting fruit is splendid.

Hello Jusni,
Very nice presentation of the fruits, it is well composed with excellent contrast, well done!
Best wishes,

Bonjour Jusni,
Très belle et artistique publication par sa composition et par la formidable opposition des susjets sur l'arrière-plan.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
