To Rodrigues: Thanks!

To ban_man: Painterly quality

Manas,

I'm not sure exactly what element of the photos you would interpret as painterly, but I think you may be seeing the effects of long time exposures. Almost all of my images are shot on a...

To Rodrigues: I added a workshop correction of this image.

Joao,
