2011-12-25 Thanks to team and the voting community, this shot became the number 15 of the top 100 HDR shots!! I'm really suprized, because I never expected this result. Many thanks!!! :la:
:new: 2014-11-01 Well, I still do not get it but somehow this shot got DD'd. Many thanks to ihamo for suggesting and Kaz-D for featuring! I am a dummy!

:new: 2014-11-13 I received some requests to upload this one in higher resolution -> some user want to print it for their home. Well, you can download it (for free), print it by yourself (that's often expensive), or you buy it here as a print on DeviantArt.

I just uploaded it at the maxium resolution I can offer.
