Tallinn (old-town section), is an enchanted town with a long history. Wonderful to walk about and explore. This image features the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, seen at the top, which is a Russian Orthodox church. A true storybook looking town.

using a long focus works very well, the picture looks very compact with many details.

Hello David ,

my younger son has already been in Tallinn, I did not have the occasion yet, but as far as I can see, you might have called your photo "Estonia in a nutshell". A very condensed perspective, but what astonishes me most is the use of a 14-42 mm lens, according to what you write. I would have assumed a long range tele lens.

hello David, very nice image here. I've seen some other photos from this beautiful city and i like the medieval feeling of it. I love the orange roofs. Good take.

There is something that makes one think about a fairy tale in this. I do not know at what time of the day you took the photo, but the light looks very nice.
The only problem is that you have just added one city to my 'must visit' list!

You were in Tallinn a week after me, and the weather certainly had changed for the better in those days. You found a very good POV that included so many interesting buildings apart from the Russian cathedral. The colours and light are really beautiful.

Excellent roof top view of Tallinn roof tops and towers, and the big bang with the cathedral's onion domes, and colorful reds dominating.
Estonia must be a special place rich in history?
Thanks for sharing,

Hello David - The rich variety of roof shapes and colours and the way they are layered here makes for a beautiful subject. I like the addition of the trees, the deep greens contrast attractively with the oranges. Very nice composition. Warm regards rosemary

Good morning and happy weekend.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

It seems that all are pointing to the skies, a charming image with a pretty looking architecture that's in a very nice spot especially in summer and what a great viewpoint and perspective with this lovely settled composition. I think that is the reason why you just can't pass it without taking a shot or two and who could possible grow tired of such a stunning setting, definitely not a scene you could ever get bored of looking at. This has a freshness to it, in feel as well as look. Congrats

I think those Russian architectures are beautiful and very ornate. Nice capture of those buildings. I like the lighting coming from the side making the structures more 3-dimensional. Good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
(Yes, those UAVs are more advanced than the ones I saw when I was in the U.S. Navy back in the early 70s.)

Indeed looks beautiful from this POV, where apart from the church, the turrets dominate. The church has its usual Eastern Orthodox structure, with onion shaped domes. Using the 150 mm zoom compresses the perspective. The sky is guess has the day haze..good shot! As for nitpicking, I would have gone for a narrower focus (8 or even higher), so that the sharpness would have increased...

The architectural details I can see here are very beautiful and interesting! Special regards to all those different rooftops!
Truly attractive picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, vertical format, chosen pov and composition really pleased me!
TFS - congrats,
