Annoying 'Maven Dependency Management' error in Eclipse

I had this come up several times in Eclipse. When I try to convert an existing project to Maven project (going through Right Click on Project -> Configure -> Convert to Maven Project), every once in a while I get this error:

The solution is actually quite simple. Right Click on Project -> Maven -> Disable Maven Nature. Now, open up a command line in the folder with your .pom file for the project and run the following command:
mvn eclipse:clean
After it finishes, go back and repeat steps for converting project to Maven.

HDR old town Dubrovnik, Croatia

I took this picture in 2005, when I was visiting a friend in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Of course, that time I had no clue about the HDR or photography in general, so my camera was a simple 8MP Fuji. Recently, I was going through my old photos, and given my fascination with HDR photography, I thought this shot would be pretty good to make and HDR out of...
