Rambutan (Ngoh): A fruit native to many Southeast Asian nations; Thai rambutans, mostly grown in the South and East, are sweet and succulent, the juicy flesh coming easily away from the stone. Favourite varieties are Ngoh Rong Rien and Ngoh Si Chompoo.

Hello Laurent, nice repeating pattern, good colours too, I would have liked a closer view for more detail as well as a larger picture..

Very nice still life, Laurent. A cool compo, and it says (at least to me), Thailand!, as well as any other shot.

A very beautiful texture experiment. Colours are beautiful, sharpness and depth of field is perfect. Thank you Laurent...

I'm curious with new tastes of the world. Those Rambutan's never tried to eat but reading Your note I thought that it must be delicious. Good texture and contrast. I like it. Cheeers. maki

Thats my favorite fruit. i love the taste. Actually the rambutan is the one fruit I go to know in South East Asia that I didnt know before. The other one was, well, too smelly for me to try. I like the amount of detail here. Those spikes have a great graphic quality to them.

I like the graphic side of this shot. Greenish spikey ends make a nice contrast to this red fruit.
Nice presentation through a close-up,

Laurent I love this photo of Souteastern Fruit too. These are one of my favorites. If I did not work in a produce warehouse I don't think I would know about these juicy ones. Nice lighting and very well presented!

Thank you for your feed-back on Marilyn last post. I remember this original series of yours, in which the mangoustine has a magnificent result. Still, this one also resulted on a wonderful pattern. I continue with my question. Does this fruit exists in Goa?

Salut laurent :)
Moi j'aime bien ces compositions minimalistes, voire simplistes, que des étalages de fruits et légumes offrent à volonté.
Il y a qqn qui s'appelle "kajspice" qui fait le même genre de post, et j'aime beaucoup :)

Très chouette comme image de ce fruit dont j'en ai vaguement entendu parlé. Mais là i ly en a une profusion et cela donne une image toute simple mais riche graphiquement.
