Dear Trekkers,

A simple capture of black grapes growing on a hill in the vicinity of city of Oppenheim. To get into this vine area is just 5 min walk from my apartment, so it is wonderful to spend some time wandering in this vine area, and subsequently having a bird's eye view of the city of Oppenheim.

These grapes are well riped and ready to cultivate. I thought to capture the repetitive pattern of these vines which gives an idea of depth I feel.

Hope you enjoy the picture.

Kind regards,

Hi Paras,
Perfect sharpness on the grapes! I like the atmosphere you created here with the vineyard in the BG in a blurred and soft method.
Good exposure management. Very neat work.
My regards,

Hi Paras.

Nice touch with the title to this intetersting image. I love the focal point, the detail and the rustic, gnarled shapes of the vines. I may have cropped some more from the lower area but matters little to this fine shot. tfs

stv ;o))

Hi Paras
all these grapes seems delicious...Good focus on the subject
the light is superb
Well done

Olá Paras,
Wise decision of concentrate the focus preferencial on this so pretty grapes.
The blurred BG included the interesting bokeh gives a romantic atmosphere to the scene.

Hi Paras, an appropriate picture for living now in one of the famous wine areas.
Yes, they look ready for harvest - and in a few months the wine will be ready to taste ..... I miss the Weinfest atmosphere here, even there are now grown some grapes around us.
Thanks for sharing - Herzliche Gruesse Monika

Hallo Paras, diese Trauben könnten ja auch bei uns an der Bergstraße hängen, wir haben ja auch den guten Wein:-)) Bin überrascht, dass Ihr nun auf der anderen Seite des Rheins wohnt.Gar nicht weit von uns, wir kennen Oppenheim sehr gut:-))
Eine sehr gute Detailaufnahme, und ich greife jetzt mal zu:-)) Sehr guter Bildaufbau:-)) Perfekt präsentiert.
Liebe Grüße

Hoi Paras,
A very nice capture of these grapes ! Reminds me of the song: "I heard it through the grapevine", listen to link. But I guess this has nothing to do with your photo.

Great capture of the colors and texture. Very good light too. And no, you've not succeeded in creating depth, I guess because of too less DOF. The background is too blurry and nearly seems to be another photo. But it seperates the grapes from the background very well.

Good note with it.

And they should be proud of their grapes! They look very delicious. Good use of the dof with good lighting and nice details. Very well done, tfs.

Good Evening Paras,

The bunch of grapes hanging with their branches is looking marvellous. You've aesthetically taken this image into this frame. Nice natural colors and luminosity. Well done my friend. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,

Hi Paras,
Healthy looking bunches.Nice perspective with the grapes on the upper section and the clear bottom leading into the vineyard with an interesting bokeh.

The fade behind the delicious bunches of red grapes.
Wine "colored" and if table saoporito perfume.
Soon I hope the red leaves

Hi,very attractive composition with the blue grapes standing out against the blurr most effectively.All the best,Otto.

Hi Paras..nice shot...I like the shallow depth of field with the sharpness of the grapes in the foreground. Well done.


bonjour Paras beautif grapes
The skin maybe hard to chew, but this is not its destination, though to look at with your attractive picture makes you want to take it in the hand and taste nevertheless.
welcome blur
bonne journée
