      These shots have such warmth to them I marvel at your ability. As for the bottles and very shallow DoF, can never decide what gets the focus and what gets the "b" word. Here you strike a happy balance and the sharpness runs in the direction off the glasses so we have a visual invitation to taste the wines. Wonderful shot. This from a beer and stout fan! (Stout as in grog, not as in fatso!)

      @lani - you know where to come...the great thing here is that for a few euros you get to taste wines that in any other country can only be found in *** star restaurants at $300 a bottle and up.

      @januaryman - thanks, jim, must admit I was pleasantly surprised how the tamron handled it, (the lens is a bit rough around the edges especially at max aperture/35mm, but this is possibly better than my zuiko 35-70mm). this was shot through a shop window so you can see faint reflections above the glass and the left hand bottle. I blame the fujicolor pro film for the warmth!

      Those "off brand" lenses of years ago were made by fine craftsmen, using the same high quality glass and design as the cameras makers like Olympus and Canon. I have a Tokina zoom Canon FD mount that blows me away for quality and usefulness - What shocked me was that you took this thought a shop window with no ill effects. Fuji is good, I find Reala 100 color rich and Superia 400 cheap, good and normal to a bit on the minus saturation scale.

      Regardless, an amazing shot.
