Tallinn is a medieval city and it's walls have been remarkably well preserved and restored. Most of the old town is encircled by the historic fortifications. At regular intervals around the walls are defensive bastions topped with attractive red-tiled roofs.

Well caputred and the winter feeling of the shot is strongly conveyed. I like the two people in the shot, they add a great sense of scale. The tower is well positioned in the frame and well exposed. Good work.

A well balanced shot of the city wall of Tallinn. It seems to be an impressiive fortification. The snow adds a nice extra touch to the photo. Well done!

Hi Jonathan, You have well chosen a nice day for this shot. Good to use the braches of the trees in the foreground and the snow on the ground to contrast the architecture. The inclusion of the visitors has provided a good size reference. Well done.

I like the simplicity of this lovely picture. The sturdily built city walls are beautiful in the white snow.

I like it when cities retain their old walls - it's relatively rare these days but great when you can still find it. I like the way you used the tree on the right, balancing the frame against the mass of the wall and tower. The intricate curling patterns of the bare branches make for a nice contrast to the straight lines of the wall. Well done!

Jonathan tout me plaît dans cette photo : composition, lumière, couleurs et même la présence des promeneurs qui donne l'idée de la grandeur de l'édifice. Le D200 est un bon appareil.

Impressive and soft white winter light. The sky is important here to enjoy the mood of the moment and you defined the right frame.
Interesting and great. I really enjoy it.

A well composed winter shot of this ancient tower and wall. The POV is superb, and the details clearly seen. The snow makes an excellent foreground here, there are good shadow effects, and the two people in the scene warm and enhance. Very well captured.

There is a peaceful atmosphere in here that attracts me. This medieval architecture don't excite me much, but the composition is very good and I love to see those persons downthere. Good use of the branches against the beautiful light blue tones of the sky. May be it's the monolitic architecture and the winter mood that attract me...
I hope you are having fun in Bangladesh.

Nice angle you got here. The tiny people give a good idea of the scale of that tower.
