not feeling the first 3 sergio. there isnt enuf going on imo to carry the images. nice for you to remember the beautiful view though.

i like the idea with the coffee cup, i think it may have worked better if you put the cup on the top railing as opposed to the table.

loving the last shot. brilliant use of dof and i love the angle you used there with the knife leading you in. excllent background choice with the wine giving it a real oppulant feeling. i feel like eating something sweet now lol. nice work.

yea.. i wanted to put it on the railing except it was blowing a gale and i am pretty sure my coffee would of ended up in the lake!

excuse my title, i didnt proof it, typed too quickly.. supposed to be "wine country" lol

i have learned a few things from this trip, fist off i need a wider prime, i think the 35 may be calling my name, the other thing is i learned that auto ISO is your friend! forgetting to turn down your ISO when changing scenes wrecks photos... also letting your mrs drive is bad news! missed one of the best sunsets i have ever seen!

I was going to say that about the last shot. Awesome stuff there.

last shot is the best and like Rooz said there isnt enough in the first three to make them special shots. A lack of foreground...
Also, they look at touch soft..maybe a little sharpening?

Nice Sergio, hope you enjoyed the trip. I like the 1st lavender and obviously the cheese platter too?

Look forward to seeing some more assuming you were still stable enough to release the shutter for the rest of the weekend:D

My folks drove last week when I was out there and didn't stop for the fields of yellow soursobs between the rows of vines, did you manage one like that?

lavender shots

50mm1.8 @ f4
iso400
1/500 sec

the last shot

50mm1.8 @ f2
iso1000 (it was meant to be 800 not sure what happened there) bt i did not apply and noise reduction in PP so i guess high iso on d80 aint that bad...
1/100

not sure if anyone noticed but that is a wine barrel in the background i love what it did to the bokeh

Looks I might have to check out the 50mm f/1.8 when I pick up my new gear at the end of the month...
