After almost 4 thousand kilometers of driving we are ending our holiday at Cres, Croatia. A place I have visited all my life.

Here are a few more/less colorful ones I hope you'll like.

Comments welcome...

I like #4 best, the way the fountain came out is just crazy.

Thanks to all the cats and fountains in the world.

I'm glad you like them.

The cat blew me away even when I was taking the picture.

You know that feeling when you click and you just know that it's going to turn out great :)

Most definitely, Jakov!  Glad you enjoyed such a long journey.  I would second John and #4 is my favorite in the series.  Did you use a full-frame circular fisheye on an IR-modified DX camera?

Thanks Akira!

Yes, I used the full frame circular 8 mm Sigma F/3.5 fish-eye on an IR modified D200 camera.

I actually prefer using it on DX cameras, you can see more of the photo - so to speak. On a full frame camera a lot of the frame is thrown to waste.

Here are two more from today, I paparazzi-ed my lovely Zuze catching some sun with the same equipment as mentioned above, and the second image is a caterpillar that crawled onto my towel suddenly, shot with 85/1.4 and PN-11, a combination I'm getting to like for close-ups.

I'm looking forward to future comments :)

After the beach I spoke with Nina. I know her all my life. She is deep into her 90's and can barely see. She talks a mixture between Italian and Croatian, and only close family members can completely understand her words. She is wearing these slippers since at least 2007 (when I started going to Cress after a 17-year break) and they always put a smile on my face "It's time to save a turtle". I'm sure she's not aware what's written but they are obviously comfortable for her.

      I have a spare micro 4/3 body that no longer sees service, a Panasonic GX-7.  I was looking at having it converted to an IR camera by https://www.lifepixel.com/  Does anyone else have any experience with a converted Micro 4/3 body and lenses shooting IR?  Which conversion do you go with, the standard IR?  My goal is to have some fun and explore an area of photography I have never tried before, and the redundant body with little resale value seemed like a good choice to try?

      My old Nikon D80 is now converted to IR 830.
      This is my first IR image... actually an IR panorama.
       
      1

       
      It was taken a few days ago from the "Passeggiata del Gianicolo", near a lighthouse, where you can have a nice view over Rome and its surrounding mountains in the background... clearly visible in IR; not so in visible light.
       
      The NEF was developed and converted to BW in Lr; some extra editing, punch and contrast, was done in Nik Silver Efex.

      These three IR images were shot on hike of the Queens Route in Vesterålen, Northern Norway in August. The hike goes from Nyksund under the mountains along the sea, then reaching the fishing village Stø, it ascends up on an narrow mountain ridge back towards Nyksund.  It was a day where light and fog was changing the whole time:
