It's about time: my photos from aKademy are online. :)
There are not many KDE-related pictures in there because I didn't carry my camera with me during the first few conference days. I tried to compensate at the end by taking pictures of Aaron Seigo handing over the big Konqi to Marcus Furlong to thank him for organizing this excellent aKademy.
(See the full gallery for more Konqi images.)
The rest of the gallery consists of pictures from Dublin. I'm especially fond of two pictures I took at night:

As for the lenses, my main lense is the Canon EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 USM, which I used for the bulk of the photos. For some zoom shots (notably the birds) I used the telephoto kit lense that came with the camera, the Canon EF 90-300mm f/4-5.6. Because of the low-light conditions most of the night shots were taken with the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 lense.
One picture is special. The Wall of Fame is taken with a Sigma fish-eye lense, that I could kindly borrow from Hubert Figuière. My own wide-angle stops at 28mm, which wasn't nearly enough to fit the wall in a single picture. Thanks, Hubert, for allowing me to take an 'impossible' shot!
I haven't used any filters other than UV, though some of the pictures have seen minor retouching with Gimp before I put them online. I tried to leave most pictures untouched, or only cropped, however.
