Nice shot, Louis, I like the light.

Nicely done, Louis!

Oh...fabulous image, Louis.

Right...done the vintage ports, so lets now move onto the tawnies...
Louis: Thanks Ray - there still are the rubies, but maybe they should save some for lunch.
I really like that top image, Louis. A Likey for me!
Louis: Thank you Ginnie, I am honoured.

Texting: the universal way of distraction Louis..
Louis: Amen to that, Chris.

I see no bottles.
Louis: They are tasting, not drinking, gutteridge.
This is a nice candid Louis, in my camera club this would be among the winning images I would think.
Louis: Thanks for the compliment, Brian.
As a plastic surgeron i find your shot's fabulous ! This is the same thing as a plastic surgery but many people think that photography is simple shoting !
Louis: Thank you Docteur, for the appreciation.
You can't concentrate on the pot if you are texting.

Never mind it is a fine picture
Louis: Thank you Bill. When you had enough port, you can't concentrate and neither can one text ...

This is wonderful, Louis. What a fabulous picture with the silhouettes. The picture breathes calm, peace, rest. Lekker op het gemak een glaasje port drinken.
Louis: Thank you, Astrid. Having your port, with a view while seated at the barrel - yes, that is life.
It looks like a painting by Magritte.
Louis: Thank you Claudio. When I saw the people by the window, I thought about Vincent van Gogh's picture https://fineartamerica.com/featured/van-gogh-peasant-woman-peeling-potatoes-vincent-van-gogh.html . That is what I tried to copy with my photograph. I will still work with it and see if I can get closer to the Van Gogh painting.

i hope they will not wake up the next day regretting the messages sent, Louis. i liked the mood in the second image
Louis: If the messages are sent to their children, there will be no regrets. Children know their parents most of the time. Thank you, Ayush.
I know which occupation I prefer smile
Louis: The row of applicants is too long for me, so I took up something else and made this my hobby smile
It looks like daylight still but I'll take your word.
Louis: The top picture is day light and the bottom one I have taken at 22:27. In my comment, I was referring to the latter picture.
There is only one picture on my screen.
Louis: Oh my, here we go again. The mysteries of the internet. I load the picture for inclusion in my comments on Google+ and make sure it's security is set as 'public'. From the comments I know that Ginnie and Ayush did see the second picture - not sure about the rest. A few weeks I tried to load a Youtube, but SC 'refused', then a week later trying to load pictures in comments I kept on receiving error messages and now everything seemed to be working again - until I received your message ...
nice pic
good one !
