Winter in Piatra

As I've said before, it's snowing here. Yesterday we had a beautifully sunny day, but today, snow again. :-) I guesstimate about 30 cm has fallen until now.
I took this picture on the walk from Iuliana's parents' to her aunt and uncle's place.

Took my camera with me and shot this little beauty :-)

well, okay then

Here's a second one... this is actually what was at my back when I took the earlier one.

Place Royale

Went to place royale to take this pano. 8 exposures.

Did this one the same morning as the panorama.

Brussels in the morning; a panorama of 15 exposures

I was up early this morning and took these with the intention of finally doing a panorama.
I'm very impressed by photomerge! The full resolution picture is 17021*3039 (yup that's 51 MegaPixels for you :-) ) and 158 Mb as a .psd or 21 Mb as a .jpg. :-s


Yes it seems I've been a good boy this past year! Students studying technology at accredited online schools will be jealous of these presents. I got a Wacom Bamboo 1 tablet and a ColorSpyder Express from the old man.
I couldn't be happier :-)

The iPhone version here is only png.

The lighthouse of Cabo Sao Vicente. picture taken from the Fortress in Sagres.
For test purposes, this is a PNG file instead of a JPG. I'm trying to see if there's a quality difference that makes the larger file size worth the switch...
iPhone version here (also PNG).

That holiday feeling

Thought I'd treat you all to a nice sunny picture in these dreary times of 'winter'.

We passed this ruin on one of our walks in Lagos. I really liked it so I snapped a couple of shots.
The iPhone version is here.
PS: all editing for this and the previous picture done in the new Camera RAW and PeeEss Cee Ess Fore , which totally rock!

The church, another view

This is also the church in the Fortalezza do Sagres. I really like how dramatic the sky turned out above the white of the church walls. Hope you like it as well! The iPhone version is here as usual.
