July is a month of news, it must be that unusual yellow globe up in the sky is coming to the party more often ;) After quite some extensive revising, I finally published my new website with a brand new series of photos and a Prints section

Go have a look and let me know your thoughts! :D

My life was happily divided between my scientific studies and practicing the decorative arts until I moved to Florence for my University studies.

Looks like I missed the boat on the #splittonefivedaychallenge  but I am about to board ;) 

This is how Alan Shapiro formulated this Split-Tone challenge:
'Now that the black and white challenge has circled the globe a few hundred times, I want to start something new that takes monochrome processing to the next level. Let's all play with split toning for a while and share among our friends.'

I was invited by +Caroline Fraser and I would like to ask my friend +Jenn Oliver to join us ;)

This is my first addition so Day1 of 5: a roses still life I shot some time ago but never got to finish editing, until now... :)

Day 5 of 5 - #splittonefivedaychallenge  
Today we are in #Sicily , looking into the water source that once was the nymph Arethusa. Now in this location, a dense vegetation of Papyri grows right at the edge of the Mediterranean sea.

Food for thought: photo editing, compositing, manipulating is as old as photography itself.
Let's not see it as necessarily "faking" a photo but rather bringing what comes out of our cameras close to what our eyes see (and believe me, our brain is a master at faking reality ;) ).

U.S. President Abraham Lincoln may look every bit the all-American hero in this 150-year-old pre-Civil War photograph. But it is in fact a fake - two photographs stitched together.

May be I will like it when I am more experienced into this area

I have printed the same photos (book or loose) with 4 companies, 3 matched my calibrated monitor pretty well, the last company that has RAVING reviews delivers pictures that are roughly 20% brighter and with 30% less contrast... What would you do?
The last company would be pretty convenient for covering orders across the borders.

Sure +Elmar Schrage, the companies I am satisfied with across color and BW are Shutterfly and WHCC (both US based), Blurb is ok for colors but gets color casts on BW, while the company with weird print offset is WhiteWall...
Thanks +börje ensgård finding a decent local/European printing manufacture seems to be tricky.

Savour the Unexpected!
Introduction
I was born in a sunny little town in Sicily back in the day. My life was happily divided between my scientific studies and practicing the decorative arts until I moved to Florence for my University studies. Here, for the first time ever, I was left free and responsible to cook for myself. Long story short, I soon was catering to all my housemates.
Once I obtained my Master Degree in Physics I moved to Bonn, Germany, to follow up with a PhD. It wasn't long untill I realised how a tight fit a life of pure research was for me. In the period that followed, I started my blog "Recipe Taster" as a way to reach out into what was still a mysterious world to me. 
Little by little though, what seemed at the beginning as a complete shift in careers became more like a natural evolution of myself. My scientific studies have in fact empowered me with the knowledge and attitude that I find essential for developing new successful recipes that work.
I now manage my activity as freelance recipe developer, private chef, teacher and photographer, embracing both my artistic and scientific side.
