Some toying with adding text and frames, something am not used to :P
This is, as far as my knowledge goes, a Passiflora caerulea, aka Common passion flower or Blue passion flower.
Oh, by the way, the text is based old wives tale in the town I shot it (and apparently a common belief across Europe at least). It's hard to see from this angle but on most individual passion flowers the numbers match their features (by the way, the number of apostles is ten because neither Judas nor Peter are counted).

I love this scene, too bad the light was dim and the exposure rather awful :|
Minimal edits, I intend to redo it with some more time. Raw conversion in ViewNX. WB, "push" and unsharp mask in GIMP.EXIF:

Full-size highly recommended. The look on its face while sunbathing was awesome, too bad it isn't clearly displayed here though. I put a full-size crop of its face in my scrapbook though :)

A good rest after an exhausting day.
The focus was on the paws although with an ultra-compact camera it doesn't make much of a difference.EXIF:

Just a something I liked, this is part of "Casa Salvador", a restaurant in Cullera, Valencia (Spain).
Heavy editing in GIMP. Rotated, cropped, B&W film effect (Ilford Delta 100), wall defects (clumsily) corrected, contrast enhancement, some burned highlight fixing, added film grain.EXIF:

This one was shot from a moving car so I did my best to salvage an acceptable image since a liked a lot that lone tree in the middle of the field; and it also served as an excuse to tinker a bit with filters, image manipulation and the like.
I liked how the old building got reflected in the new one, though the effect didn't show that much in the shot.

Shot near Valverde de Júcar, Cuenca, with my last film camera.
Not very spectacular for a panorama, I know, just two photos, but more a way of practising than a real work.
This was my first (public) try at stitching some photographs together; and my absolute first portrait (i.e. vertical) stitch. Could be better merged but fits well enough for now; thanks to my temporarily unavailable tablet the masks in the intermediate file are a mess though :D
The originals were matte prints scanned and it shows, although I love the strange colours of these prints. Might rework it once I get my paws on better versions.EXIF:

I love violet sunsets, there's something unreal about them...

Some tweaking of a random, dull, field photo shot near Valverde de Júcar, Cuenca (Spain), to get a vintage-y effect.

The latest version of VCS is available to download. It's been a good while since the last release, but there aren't a lot of changes this time around, apart from the usual bugfixes there's better handling of errors and unsupported files. The most important bug fixed is obviously the one I already previewed some days […]
Just a quick note for those encountering this bug where the codec information is misaligned and cropped, you can download a pre-release of the next version now. There's a couple more bugfixes and minor changes, and hopefully not much breakage. This issue has been there for months (first pointed out, together with the fix, by […]
For anyone interested, Thomas has contacted me to let me know he wrote a "Video Contact Sheet Ruby" which reuses part of VCS' code and outputs contact sheets in the same style. Being written in Ruby, its code will be less of a mess and, even more interestingly, it can run on Windows with less […]
En este post explico cómo he conseguido reproducir contenidos de Nubeox Premium protegidos con DRM en Linux. El mismo método debería servir para otros servicios problemáticos basados en Flash, como Wuaki o TotalChannel aunque no lo he probado. Como tantas otras veces, el Wiki de Arch Linux ha sido de lo más útil. El problema […]
I've just published an updated version of Relevation. The main addition is support for the newer format of data files used by Revelation, plus a slightly better handling of international characters in the data file. This is, however, a somewhat rushed and unpolished release to support the newer file format as soon as ready. As […]
Next release (1.13.3) announcement A new update of VCS with a couple bugfixes is available to download. Once again, if you had problems with the previous versions there's nothing new. It fixes a bug when using MPlayer as capturer that could produce one more capture than expected. Thanks to Miya for reporting it. See the […]
Next release (1.13.2) announcement A minor update of vcs is available to download. In short, if you don't use Arch and you had no problems running it there's no need to update. It fixes an uncommon bug and updates the build script for Arch Linux. Thanks to Eris Belew for reporting these. See the full […]
