Rather unsure if this weeks photo should go here or on my photo site; you see its been given a little tweak in Lightroom with a free downloadable preset (onOne Glow). Lightroom being my latest software toy, although the familiarity of Photoshop beckons. this weeks Sunday Wine Shot is a simple bottle of Prosecco – the photo being simple, rather than the wine.

Last Wednesday a trip up to that London and a delightful lunch with Douglas and the people behind the latest hot prosecco name, Nino Franco. A full post to come detailing the wines but in this photo you can just make out a chunk of the chalky-limestone soil, pinched from a Nino Franco vineyard. It is this white rock that supplies the distinctive mineral-edge to the wines. Grave di Stecca Brut is made exclusively from Glera fruit plucked from the small Grave di Stecca vineyard.

  1. Interested to know more about the on One software – do you use it on everything? Does it save time. Just got LR4 and learning to use it.

    Like how you collected a bit of the stone from the vineyard.

    • I’ve only just started using light room having been using Photoshop alone for several years. I’ve downloaded a batch of presets for light room – I’ll compile a list on my photo blog perhaps – but don’t use them that often. But then its; only been a couple of weeks since I got light room. So early days I have plenty of filters and things in Photoshop that I use a lot – detailing filters and do on.

  2. Thank you for your appreciation!
