Photography editing, Clouds – which 1 do you prefer?

clouds at dusk 2
clouds 2 (original)

Both images taken with Taken with Fuji – X-E1. The bottom picture is the original . It was then processed in photoshop cs6 using auto colour correction.
I can usually decide on 1 image if i have multiple images similar but on this occasion i cant make up my mind up which to choose.
when i cant decide i usually print both and put them on the wall and look at them over the next few days.
At the moment i still can’t decide, both have their own quality.

Please comment which image you prefer. πŸ™‚

Probably the most important new about crypto I have read lately.

Ahhhhh, what an amazing country!

Just one week ago that I came back from a holiday trip at Portugal, mostly at Algarve and Lisbon area.

Chatting with my wife we both agreed that Portugal had surprised us in many aspects…

There we found an exemplary country in my opinion, excellent gastronomy, beautiful and clean beaches, preserved nature, modern and efficient infrastructure, healthy industry…

It gave us the impression that the country is emerging from the European economic crisis in a more efficient way than the rest of the southern countries …


… and not only at the traditional levels of the economy….

The Portugal Tax Authority has a very clear approach regarding BITCOIN and CRYPTOCURRENCIES:

“Cryptocurrency trading and payments inΒ Portugal are exempted from tax”

Read the Authority Rule here (Portuguese language) and a more synthetic new here .

Do you think Spain and the rest of European countries will learn from Portugal’s Example?

First day at the Office: Bougth 300 STEEM at BITVAVO and…

…drank a couple of beers during lunchtime, just to avoid a drastic change on my psychological integrity ;-)…

By the way, I have to say and certify that Bitvavo works excellently.

The process of signing, verifying, transfering FIAT and buying STEEM have been done very fast and without problem.

Also, as I wrote in the title, I have spent 50 Euros, transferred directly from my Bank Account via SEPA, buying 301 STEEM this morning…

The fee has been minuscule (0.13 Euro) in my opinion, 0.25% which is peanuts!

If you are an EU resident and you want to buy or sell STEEM without having to buy first BTC or ETH or even use the Blocktrades conversions, you should try BITVAVO .

These 300 STEEM are planned to be powered up in my account but, since I expect to have some nice movements in the price of STEEM these days due to the HF21, which is coming tomorrow, for the moment, I am going to keep them at BITVAVO, just in case I can take some advantage :-)…

I am puting my referral and @soyrosa ‘s referrals below so we can get a portion in your trading fees, which, as I said, they are very tiny… @soyrosa wrote a post a few days ago informing about “The easiest way to buy STEEM directly in Europe – no more crypto conversions needed!” so, I would like to thank her about the discovery.
