Walking around Midtown Atlanta I just wanted to use my new fisheye lens and this Ferrari caught my eye 

I see a lot of gradient degradation of the vignette in the top left corner. My workflow with this was to process in Olympus Viewer and then in Lightroom because even though Oly Viewer produces better pictures from Olympus cameras, I'm still not completely satisfied with the effects until they go through Lightroom for some reason. Help me by critiquing this picture - post processing settings, colors, etc.

My new blog post: Don't let people walk through your mind with dirty feet

Planning events and trying to bring people together, I’m often in the middle of high-stress, high-demand situations. When everyone else is busy reacting to all the small things that haven’t been done yet or things that are going wrong, I have to be the…

New blog post today: One Man’s Happiness is Another Man’s Sorrow

*Unapologetic*

I am utterly unapologetic about chasing my own happiness. It’s so important that every spare moment I get, I ask myself, often out loud, “OK, what do you want to do now?”

Some people view happiness as a finite resource: if I chase my happiness, then there is less happiness for others to have. I believe there is plenty of happiness out there and you just have to go and grab your own share of it.

Some people say that my happiness is only attainable because I’m standing on the shoulders of others. I’m very grateful to those who have come before me or those who have opened up opportunities for me to be happy. But let me be very clear: I believe they acted in their own best interests and because helping others made them happy.

To act in direct contrast of what makes you happy is a foolish choice and I wouldn’t want to be obligated to anyone because they sacrificed their own happiness for mine. I could never sleep at night knowing someone else had to be unhappy for me to be happy.

This has to be one of the sexiest boot animations in the history of CM. I've been using CM since 6.0 days I think and this boot animation combined with the new font thickness is the right match, I must say. The thickness of the arrow animation matches the thickness of the lettering in the title and the ears. It's just overall sexy to look at. I love rebooting my phone and tablet at the same time just to watch them side by side lol
