one of my favs to hit up before a day of wine tasting. you can fill up on samples of food at the shop . I usually spend an hour fattening up before I move on.

Did you take any shots from the top of the hill outside the shop? Looks like you had a nice quiet day to visit. It is always packed when I go there. #2 is my fav, only because it looks slightly ominous

Here are a few more pics (they have some issues and I haven't had any time to play with the RAW files yet):

Amazing place, looks interesting, like a very fruitful mixture of European and American styles!

Couldn't agree more, an amazing and beautiful place. Really like the second image, it has a surreal quality and European flavour about it. You may want to check your exposure, as it looks dark on my screen.

Thank you for the feedback. It was a dark brooding day and looked very much like the pictures show it. But, here are a few of the images, after repossessing the RAW files.







Cheers!

The corrected versions are great!! Looks like a fun place to visit. With a serious case of the winter blues that green grass looks so inviting. Thanks for sharing

Ever since the advent of Post processing programs, there is a tendency for viewers on the net, myself included, to try and improve the images we see. It can be as much a curse as a blessing. Sometimes leads to being overly-critical. I was only trying to help.

That aside, I really like your reworked images, the neutral greens on the figurines, the adobe coloured courtyards and bulidlings, so beautiful. I especially like the figurine with the lion surrounded by the garden. So well done.

Don't take my comment the wrong way, I really appreciated the feedback. I didn't take it as a negative at all and I like the newer versions as well.

Cheers!
