This photo was taken on location at a wine warehouse in Napa. There were stacks of shining new and pristine oak barrels just waiting for the wine. I shot this close up using existing natural light coming down from several small sky lights. This is why I needed to use an ISO of 1600.
Cheers and Happy New Year!
