MY COMMENTS:
Once the harvest starts we donít see much of the boys from Eldorado unless it is too wet to run a combine or drag a loaded wagon out of the field. Then we get them in town for lunch. Eating and talking donít go together with this bunch but once the eating is done the talking starts in earnest. The food isnít all that good in this place but the co-owner is a pleasant lady.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Does this thing work? Too complicated? Too many faces? Too much irrelevant detail?

I would think it's difficult to paint such a complex set of images. Well done.

this reminds me of the hustle and bustle of the local "greasy spoons" at lunch time. the diners all talking, the waitresses running around serving and chatting with everyone, the kitchen sounds in the background...the occasional crash and curse from behind the pickup window...:D
i see you even have CNN on the TV. what, no fox news? :lol:

I LOVE this! All the different expressions and personalities, the lighting, the look on the waitress's face, great great great. The tv is too distracting for me though, maybe it's the blue, or the face looking right at us, something about it keeps pulling my eye over there, away from all those cool farmers.

Great work,
Becky
