If you've already taken a look at the original you'll know that I took a few liberties with this one, mostly in terms of blurring the clouds, but also in terms of tidying up the foreground and horizon.

Our trip to Bulgaria certainly seems to be agreeing with Tabby :)

It's difficult to describe the experience of being and living in Bulgaria, but this shot captures some of its flavour: taken during a recent trip to a local waterfall for a barbecue. Libby's in the foreground, and our good friends Andy, Petsi and their young son Mario are in the background (along with Finley, our eight year old).

As a counterpoint to yesterday's portrait of Finn - which didn't really show him off at his best - here's one I took about a minute earlier.

You'd be forgiven for thinking that Finley (our nine year old son) was in a terrible mood when this was taken, but in reality he was just a bit miffed that I asked him to look up. Clearly, playing on the iPod is a lot more important than having your portrait taken ;)

This is the first of what I hope will be many shots from our trip to Bulgaria this year nd was taken opposite our friend's apartment in Gabrovo. I'm fairly happy with how it turned out, but may go back again and take my tripod: 1/17s @ ISOb 800 wasn't ideal.

I think I could probably sit and watch the sea for a very long time.

I've had the X100S for quite a few weeks now but today was the first chance I've had to really put it through its paces. I'm impressed so far :)
