Blue Sky Over Vienna

Blue Sky

Usually I'm not very fond of too HDR-ish pictures but I simply loved this sky too much. This picture was taken at the subway station "Rennbahnweg" next to the Wagramer Straße.

This is the Andromeda-Tower in Vienna. We had 19°C on saturday in Vienna. It finally felt like spring for the first time this year.

I am a bit sick and probably can't go outside to take pictures this weekend. Therefore I edited an old flower picture from march 2007.

Graben, Vienna

Graben, Vienna

This is another picture taken at the Graben in Vienna (here are more from this place). The upper part is created from 3 exposures. The lower part with the people is taken from an HDR from a single raw picture. This removed the ghosts which appeared in the version with 3 exposures. The frame was inspired by JannaPham.

I especially like the lady with the red bags.

View large on black.

Döblinger Steg

Döblinger Steg

This is my first serious picture which I took after having finished the 365days project. I am very satisfied with the result. The feedback on my flickr page was overwhelming. It became my second picture which found it's way to flickr's front page. :-)

Greasemonkey Script: Add "Now" Button

Greasemonkey Script: Add Now Button

This is an announcement for a greasemonkey script named "Add Now Button".

It's possible to change the posted date of a picture in flickr. Sometimes it's useful to set the time to the current date and time. E.g. when you upload a picture marked as private and you want to make it public later.

This script adds a link with the text "Now" next to the date and time in the "Date Posted" tab (see screenshot). When you click on this link the date and time input fields will be set with the current values.

To be exact, this script doesn't use the current time but it subtracts one minute before doing this. Otherwise you might get an error message like "The date you have chosen is in the future. Please try again.". This value (default is "-1") is configurable. Just click with the right mouse button on the greasemonkey icon and select the command "Post Now: difference to current time (minutes)" in the menu "User Script Commands".

I don't encourage to use this script for bumping pictures which are already public! I think this is quite annoying and selfish (and I already removed contacts because of this).

You need to have Firefox and the Greasmonkey add-on installed.

If you use this script and think that it is helpful, then I kindly ask you to visit my photostream (http://www.flickr.com/photos/steffenj/) and leave some comments on my photos.

The script is available under the GPL license (which implies that I publish it without any warranty!).

The script can be downloaded from userscripts.org: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/44306

Please Give Me Some Colors!

I think it's time for spring. This is an old picture from last June.
