Big beautiful skies, these can be used over and over in Photoshop, to pep up other images.

Thanks. I totally agree with you, 10-17 is great piece of lens, I used very often, almost on daily basis.

I really like these, partly because the fisheye effect is not prominent, I think due to your good composition. I have a neighbour who is Croatian, and he's lent me a book on Dubrovnik, as I'll be briefly visiting there in September. Your photos of the Adriatic coast make me look forward even more to the visit. Thanks for sharing them.

Thank you for such a kind words. Yes, 10-17 is great lens, but it demands very maindful approach, composition is the key. About my homeland, Croatia. Here are such a beautiful places, no doubt about that, we have so many natural heritage and amazing landscapes. I know that in Australia are many Croats, send best regards to your neighbour. Also, best regards to you, if you even decide do come in Croatia, feel free to contact me.
