Nik should have just sold that mobile product to Google. I don't think Google will have any long-lasting love for Nik's great products like SilverFX Pro or ColorFX. I wonder what will be the future for these Nik Products.

flickr changed or improved little since as long as I know it. they don't apparently know where they should go so it doesn't matter to them anyway.
What a beautiful capture! this image comes back to mind again and again to make me laugh. Thanks for that!!
