    It's both, obviously! Cool machine. I imagined in France grapes were harvested by hand by skilled artisans who had to be blessed by some kind of religious figure before starting out each day but I guess not :D

    I love the look on her face. Her right eye is actually sparkling.

    Nice butterfly MHedges.

    I think I like the Black and White version of my above post.

    In Love

    Does anybody have any opinions?

    Background is a bit cluttered for my liking, but if it isn't a posed shot, it is what it is. Maybe f2.8 would have lost some of the clutter.

    A touch more contrast might be nice, it is a bit lacking contrast for my taste (which is personal). Of the two, I prefer the colour shot which is unusual for me.

    Nice natural genuine pose from the girl. I like her face and hand.
    Always learning.

    Innocenzo (Inno) De Cotiis October 6, 1937 - September 26, 2020

    Innocenzo (Inno) De Cotiis October 6, 1937 - September 26, 2020

    I have known Inno since 1997 when I started working for the family.

    Inno was born in this Italian hill town:

    and grew up in the upper right, achieving a grade 2 education.

    HIs family had a farm on the hillside on the right where they grew fruit and vegetables and raised their animals. While tending to the herd and crop, Inno would have looked over this countryside on the right side of the town:

    In April 1959 he and his six brothers and sisters, Vito, Lilliana, Maria, Velia, Michele and Amalio, emigrated to Canada and started a business that benefited from their farming experience, landscaping. In the 60 years since, Inno's share of the landscaping business turned into:

    www.onni.com,

    North America's largest condo and residential developer.

    His younger brother Michele (Mike) turned his share into www.pinnacleinternational.ca and his older brother Amalio created www.amacon.com, my employer.

    I will miss and remember Inno. I ran into him on a regular basis and we would always make time to have a warm chat.
