1. Burn veal bones in oven (275-300 degrees Celsius) until brown/blackish. 2x 20 minutes? Just check; make sure you get enough colour (->taste) on them.
2. Take bones out and put onion, carrot and celery in the tray; cover the veggies with the fat in the tray. Add tomato purée. Roast in oven until you get some browning.
3. Put bones and veggies in large cooking pot. Add thyme, bay leafs, peppercorns and some cloves. Add water; I think about 3-4 litres to 1,5 kg of bones and 1 kg of veggies.
4. Let it simmer for 10 hours or longer, if you have the time.
5. Take the bones and veggies out. Strain the liquid. Cool it down (I put the pan in the sink with cold water) and put it in the fridge over night.
6. Skim/scrape off the solidified fat.
7. There's your brown stock. I gave it a short second run with some leftover veggies and some beef, for two more hours. Taste it. If it's not concentrated enough: reduce the stock a bit. Take out the veggies; leave the beef.
8. Add strained tomatoes (without any additions) to taste; I added all the stuff in the picture. Taste to find out if you need more salt.

That's about it. I made meatballs. I used 400 grams of minced beef, an egg, a large teaspoon of mustard, a splash of worcestershiresauce, salt, pepper, nutmeg and breadcrumbs.Put them in the fridge for an hour to let the egg in the meatballs set. Add them to the soup about twenty minutes or half an hour before serving. At the same time I added some carrot, celery and mushrooms.

Serve the soup with ground parmesan, fresh basil (just tear one or two leafs in the bowl) and a splash of good olive oil. Then take a piece of bread, run it through the cheese, olive oil and basil into the hot soup and back into your mouth; that'll be the best bite : ).

It is hard to beat a good recipe in a photography thread.

 

I might have posted this again.

didn't you have a blurry version of that pic too? :)
Pretty sure I posted some screenshots of me using them as lockscreen and background on my iphone, but have changed phone since then and didn't manage to find the original post with pics

I did smile.gif. A rather nice camera focus fail, totally bokeh:

Nice, but I would definitely photoshop a pigeon in there, somewhere :)

 

 

I blame the camera, I need a new one so I can overcome my rows of trees obsession.

I had an opportunity to go out and put some of the stuff I'd learnt to practice over the weekend.

This is the first time with any camera I've been out to shoot some stuff in manual mode.

I'm pretty happy with the results. Sadly they're under exposed but I have an idea of what to do next time. The colours on the Nikon D3200 display seem to be pretty inaccurate compared to when I look at them blown up on my PC though.

Under-exposed can easily be corrected, over is a bitch.

I find Sunny 16 very useful, but the first image has tricky lighting.

Some recent shots I'm happy with - would also appreciate any suggestions about how they could have been done better - some very excellent work here brothers.

 

 

 

 

 

This one I think I understand what went wrong - it's very focused in the foreground, but I wanted the focal point to be the guy standing on the shore looking out across the sea, and that's unfocused. I'm wondering if it's because of the movement that's happening (waves) or because I adjusted the focus incorrectly, or both.

I just checked you EXIF data on that water shot you're wondering about. f13 at 1/500 of a second. Unless the fisherman was really moving like when casting your shutter speed should have froze him. I also did some math for hyper focus and the best distance to target would be about 30 feet. The depth of field would be 19 feet to infinity. So with that in mind about the only way to end up with a blurry fisherman would be to focus on something right in front of you.

Here's a pic of an artist doing his thing at a gallery opening I went to a couple of days ago.
