Thanks Gary!
When I started off with digital photography I was of the same opinion, that you shouldn't do any post processing, but over the years it seems that it's a part of the process, just like the dark room where you processed your images. The only difference is that the possibilities are greater nowadays.
It didn't take that much, apart from being incredibly stubborn, I am not the most patient type either :)

I simply adore the flowers. Never mind getting addicted to the Heligon!  ;)

i promised i would use my circular fish-eye and make a planet.

this is the main tower bell that wakes me up every morning at 6:30.
not only is it powerful but it's about 100m from my window...

Thanks Armando!
More fun to come :)

The basketball themes continues to dominate my summer vacation.
The previous basketball sunset was created using my longest lens 300/4.5, but last night I wanted to use the shortest 8/3.5 circular fish-eye.
That of course wasn't enough, so I made a night shot afterwards.
We enjoyed some night swimming under the starry skies... accompanied with beer and pizza, but most importantly with family and friends!

Heligon or smoking is enough, both together is too much for one poor soul

the diamond stars  looking plant is outstanding

Thomas I haven't used the Heligon stoned just yet. Something tells me it might work :)
Thanks!

Sorry to be so indifferent but I like them all. Esp. mention goes to the bug on the flower and the bw basketball
scene in the middle of nowhere.

Frank, I am glad you like them all.
The middle of nowhere is north-west Montenegro, and my fellow passengers were a bit worried that we got lost and that I didn't know the road :)
