    I don't know. Neither why I headed out shooting tonight (the weather was soo bad ...) nor why I went to this awkward place where I was not supposed to be at this time of the day, nor did I know what I do when pressing the shutter button ... I'm still quite confused, and I have no clue what exactly I did tonight, but whatever, I'll just post the end result (because a photo forum can never have enough pictures, right?) and go sleep now. Or after a movie.

    Well, perhaps you should leave your brain switched off because this is another awesome pic.

    Another awesome shot is right. Is that the 12 Poki? 3 for 3?

    In case your brain is still switched off. That's a tree.

    I do think much photography is over-thought and planned, there's nothing like easy spontaneity for producing some surprising results! Many things tend to work out better for me when I don't inject careful thought into the equation.... :S

    Thank you all. I'm glad I didn't mess it up totally. And I feel my post processing gets better with every shot - which feels great. :)

    @Hypocaffeinic: Yep, spontanity is something beautiful. It's something that you should always be open to. Although I still think the absolutely best photos out there are the carefully planned and executed ones.
