Green Grow the Grapes

Uploaded: August 30, 2011 05:29:45


Something a bit different for a sunny Tuesday - backlit grapes hanging over my head on an old wood arbor at the Mastropietro Winery near Berlin Center, Ohio. Added a filter to give them a painted look and, well, here you go! Speaking of go, we're off with cameras for a while today so will comment when I can! Happy Tuesday, everyone!

A beautiful picture is not beautiful because of one thing. It takes a combination of things to make it a work of art. You have done that here. I love the painted look to start with. Its a gorgeous still life and I enjoy the shades of green and the way the colors are highligthed by the sunlight. The composition and presentation add to the beauty. Gorgeous textures finish it off. A work of art my friend.
Have a wonderful day dear friend. #9642501

Must be the one on Quarry Rd...been there a few times...go to the one in Vermillion,
It's gorgeous inside and I think with a bit more of a homey mood. It's my sister-in-law's cousin that owns it. You'll like it.
And I like this image. excellent treatment. #9642504
