I like your composition: you get the information you need, but not too much, except with the last photo, I would've cropped so that you don't see the tractor.

Nice pics Big Pix, especially the grapes being thrown towards you...

Hang on, you're going to turn on the light on the tractor? Is that your vineyard perchance?

......... well I do what I like during vintage and most of any other time, it is great to have the freedom..... the Vineyard is owned by an old friend and client, and the photo needs of the vineyard are left up to me.

I think I prefer that second go with less of a crop...

PS - Feel free to tell us the name of vineyard if you like, although I can't guarentee I won't turn up for a tasting the next time I'm in the Hunter Valley! I understand if you'd prefer to keep it private though...

Nice shots! I particularly like the ones of the Slab Hut and the low angle of the barrels...
