Death of a Cigarette

Despite a pretty cloudy sky and some rainy forecasts I decided to have a load of fresh air this afternoon. I first went for walk, shooting some fancy flowers in the Botanic Garden (see the blog for finding out what happened to the latter), and just strolled down the streets of Karlsruhe on a rather lazy Sunday afternoon. I kept looking for small details as I more and more like the background blur of the Canon 17-40 F/4 L. I guess the few people on the streets were frowning as they saw me taking a picture of this stub...

Post processing is rather straight forward here: Local contrast enhacements, blue colouring and some vignetting in the corners.
