"Storm Moving Thru The Plains"
We've had some major storms in the last couple of days. So here is an image I can relate to.
I think I used a Canon 5D2. And one if the negative of the other before blending.
This is called "Starry, Starry, Night"
Blending seems to always take me to abstraction to one degree or another.
The thing is, you never know what to expect (especially in difference mode). I think you need a whole lot of experience and some trusted textures to say "this is what I want to do" and eventually get there.
"A Walk In The Park"
This is a beautiful park below the Prague Castle. It’s not always open, but when it is, I always like to take a walk from one end to the other. The Castle is on top of the hill on the right.
The stripes are Dunes :-)
Just a pattern and no blend (Perspective crop though):
Inspired by Mike
>I recognize that location.
Not sure. They have different swarms. This is massive one in the shark tank and you hardly can get fewer fish. Of course the fish have lots of motion (actually nice) blur and we needed at least ISO 1250 (5D2) and Canon 100mm f/2.8 IS Macro.
Even more fish :-)

"A Ride In The Countryside" EP-1 40mm f 1.4 CV lens
I shot this photo out the car window on the way to Andrea’s family cottage in the Czech countryside. It’s a beautiful countryside and people are always flying hot air ballon’s and old bi- planes.
And another image from yesterday that I uploaded to the Bokeh thread, but maybe it belongs here.

"Two Roads To The Past" EP-1
Andrea and I were taking a hike near the cottage on our way to a fairy tale landscape which is about a mile away. We came to the fork in the road and I did a quick shot and then we kept on going. Now two years later, I’ve discovered it again.
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
Except there is no yellow wood - but, that should be easy too fix Mike
were the birds in the original shot? Nice touch anyway.
"Hidden Pond" EP-1
Here is another shot from our hike thru the Czech country side. I’ll probably post more in the coming days. This was such a beautiful area and I shot a few hundred photos!
And before you ask Uwe, and I mean it in a joking way, I added the swan, but he was really there. Just down at the other end of the pond. So I took a shot of him there to put in the shot that I wanted. One of those occasions where I couldn't wait around to see if he showed up. I hope it looks real? Now I'm starting to be paranoid!!
