Highest Explored Position: 12

Yesterday was a quite an ego booster for me, thanks to all my wonderful Flickr friends! Thanks to all of you, my previous upload somehow managed to get on the top 10 of the the Explored list and the response was overwhelming! I certainly couldn't have done it without your support and so this one is dedicated to you guys :) Have a great holiday!!

    I usually don't really like those kind of effects on pics, probably because lots of people use it in a bad way, but yours are very nice, they reminded me my childhood full of books with amazing illustrations which let you dream.
