  1. Hi guys,

    what you will see here has been brightened up (!) so you can just imagine which kind of blue sky there was here. It's a trip I did today in the parmesan apennin, in a town called Borgo Val di Taro (commonly named "Borgotaro")


    (here of course the white monument helps a lot! :biggrin: ) ..however..





    others following..
  2. Also a portrait (sorry front flash, no room for external one, today)
    The nice waitress at a local pizzeria..


    and my meal (not aimed, just taken the camera, kept straight on the table and shot)..

    Also some shots by the 85..

    Girls walking down the alley..

  3. Ah, Mozzarella di Bufalo e Pane! No vino?

    All tack-sharp, dino. I'm looking forward to using my recently acquired 17-35 more.
  4. Very nice series Dino. The 17-35 is a great lens, and you've got some great subjects to focus it on.
  5. Thanks guys,
    although i didn't asked for the mozzarella di bufala(*) even if I could. It's really "fat" (over 80% fats against a much lighter cow milk mozzarella) and, believe me, it's NOT really what you should ask to a restaurant: much better what we call "bocconcini" (1/5 of a whole mozzarella, much more tasteful, juicy and definitely enjoyable) or the tiny "ciliegine" (1 oz. each, more or less), like cherries.

    Here's another shot:

    here's parmesan cheese, parma ham and porcini mushrooms the most famous products


    and.. remember that *none* of my shots is more reworked than just a quick brighten/darken/sharpen and crop: they are all jpegs.

    (*) bufalA and not bufalO since bufala is the "female" producing milk.
  6. (sorry for the hood vignetting here :) )
  7. ...ah, should have realized that. Thanks for the correction, Dino. Your English is 1000 times better than my Italian :redface:.
  8. Im amazed by your photos.

    My favourite for sure.

    Thanx for sharing.
  9. Please stop from posting such pictures and making me gusto (at visiting Italy again and the 17-35). Please!
    But I really like some of your pictures...
  10. A beautiful country through a beautiful lens, such a wonderful thing. Thanks for posting Dino, wonderful as usual!
  11. Very nice photos Dino.

    I am considering the 17-35 lens.
