Appetizing Eh! ...


I know, I know; I have posted image of Nasi Goreng before but folks this time it is different in that it is the subject of my first try on Macro Photography on food. It does look great isn't it? Sure appetizing eh!

I purposely choose Nasi Goreng as the subject for the simple reason that Nasi Goreng is not only nutritious but loved by all as well. Hope that this posting does made your day.

Have a nice day.

it does look tempting pak Idrus, especially the telur mata kerbau. and nasi goreng as the subject, that to me is quite a revolution. very original.

tekak orang asia pak idrus. be it the chinese version, mamak, kampung, pedas, ikanmasin, nobody can do without our beloved nasi goreng.

Wow! That golden glistening egg yolk looks really delicious. Looks too beautiful to break and eat.

Don't apologize for posting nasi goreng again. We eat it more than once, so no harm posting it twice; from a different angle or slightly different ingredients.

Have you tried it with bean sprout?

Gotta get one soon from the mall.

Indeed Nasi Goreng is special and that is why I so choose it to be my first try on Macro Photography on food. It does turn out great and it does look like the real thing. Only Macro Photography could do that.

I am glad that you enjoy the images and it did have an affect on your thinking.. So go and make yourself a Nasi Goreng.

Thanks for the good words on this image. Have a nice day.

Anonymous [Doha], thanks for the visit and the good words on this posting.

I am indeed glad that you enjoy this image, my first try on Macro Photography on food. The Macro lens did made the differences. I am still learning the way of good photography. Would post more as I go along.

The next time you are back do drop by. Have a nice day.

Adirya Kiratas, thanks for the visit and the good words on this posting as well as sharing your thoughts on this subject.

Well it is my first try using the Macro lens on food and as you can see it does made the difference. Realistic indeed. Nasi Goreng is one of my favorite and when it is done differently and this time with the bean sprout as suggested, I would surely take an image of it and if it turn out great I would surely share it with all to enjoy.

Glad that you like the image and it did wet your appetite.

Have a nice day.

xplorer, thanks for the visit and sharing your thoughts on the subject of this posting.

Well I thought that Nasi Goreng would made an interesting subject for Macro Photography and as you saw it does turn out great.

As to your suggestion adding Cheese to Nasi Goreng I would just not do that since I would never enjoy Asian food together with Western food. I like to enjoy my food as authentic as possible and that goes with Asian as well as Western food. So when I go for western food I do not indulged on Asian food at the same time and vise verse.

Have a nice day.

Anonymous, Yvonne thanks for the visit and the good words on this posting.

I am indeed glad that you enjoy the image and it does wet your appetite. It is only through the Macro lens that such image could be captured, thus became alive and real.

For your information Macro Photography is when a special lens, the Macro Lens is used to photograph a subject. With the lens one get to look very close at the image, thus you get a closeup of the subject. I am still learning to do a better job on Macro Photography and would post whatever I think great for all to enjoy.

Have a nice day.

Wow,looks delicious, Pak Idrus. Looking at it in California, I wish I could have some now, especially one made with good, robust belacan.

Pak Idrus said...

Sharifah, thanks for the visit and the kind words on this posting.

I am glad you got the message loud and clear. That is what Macro Photography is all about. That is my first try on food and am still learning.

Have a nice day. Dah makan Nasi Goreng!!

this picture of nasi goreng is really a treat to a castaway Malaysian like me. I cant wait to get home this July and ask my wife to prepare this supreme delicacy for me.

Pak Idrus said...

Syamsulfaiz Nasution, thanks for the visit and the good words on this posting. I am happy that it trigger your thoughts on that simple yet special delicacy of ours.

I do not think you have to wait to be back and enjoy that. You could do it on your own with some ingenuity. Anyway its always nice to have the loved one prepared it with love.

Have a nice day.
