Two individuals take a stroll along a snow covered path in the old part of Tallinn. They cast long shadows in the afternoon light. The sun is never far above the horizon here at this time of year. I like the pairs in this picture: the two people, the two trees and the two towers.

Beautiful image, especially for the long shadows and the 2 towers just appearing behind the trees.

Well composed to get the towers and trees as well as the people in the photo. Very nice too to have those three pairs here. Well seen, good work!

This is a great capture. Isolating these elements all at the same time is inspiring. The shadows work very well to give warmth and depth to the shot. Nice work.

Indeed a great repitition of vertical lines!
A moody winterscene with superb graphism and perfect timing.
Well seen and captured!

A very nice winter view. Personnaly, I really like Tallinn which has kept a really medieval atmosphere in some parts but seems to be losing it to tourism nowadays. I find it again in your picture.
I like your "pairs" concept.
All the best,

Jonathan, cette photo est superbe pour sa lumière et surtout pour sa composition. La neige vient apporter son atmosphère magique à ce cadre d'une autre époque. C'est excellent !

Hi Jonathan, good symmetry between the towers and the walking ladies.
Well seen and realized.

Very nice shot! I like the 2 figures in this, approaching each other, with the 2 trees and then the 2 towers echoeing the theme. Great idea and very well executed. The light is wonderful too, with long shadows and nice texture in the snow. Excellent!

Hi Jonathan, A lovely composition here in great balance with the 2 ladies approaching each other at a perfect distance together with the 2 towers - it is very well seen! I really like the colours here, they are very different in a way - it must be the light. It looks very painter like and it's beautiful! Sabine

Yes, it's quite poetic. I love the two, two, two in this image! Beautiful lighting, with a nice game of shadows and marvellous atmosphere. Excellent capture!

Hello Jonathan, you could call this the twins photo (two old ladies, two similar trees and two towers). Love you compostion and POV. Good contrasts, use of light and shadows captured.
john_c (24666) 2006-04-03 16:22
A very well composed shot with a good sense of depth. The dual images - the towers, the people, and the trees really do make an impact here. I also like the marvellous POV, with the fine lighting and shadow effects on the snow. A first rate capture, Jonathan.

imprévisible moment, deux tours et deux personnages belle lumiére d'hiver, et composition.

Hi Jonathan - the pairing you mention is exactly what makes it work, another person, a car would have ruined it, excellent light and shadows.
weswang (18223) 2006-04-04 12:11
Hi Jonathan, I like the pairs you have provided in this picture: a pair of pedestrians; a pair of trees; and a pair of towers. Nice PoV and fun highlight under the sunlight.

Superbe image! Bravo!
Stepan (27210) 2006-04-05 16:21
Excellent perspective and framing. You're absolutely right, all the pairs work well all together. And all of that in a great soft light.
sergio1 (12152) 2006-04-06 11:32
Very original shot. I like the pov and compo (persons, snow, tower, tree). I like the lights and shadows.
I like it very much

Hi jonathon,A very unusual but effective and fine shot,TFS

I like the repeating pairs in this shot - the 2 people, the 2 trees, the 2 towers... Nicely composed scene.
tcht (7565) 2006-04-07 13:49
I like the atmosphere very much. Just two person in black clothes walking towards each other surrounded by the snowy landscape and taller objects. A bit surreal. And the contrasts of whether height or colour also works well. Of course, I like the idea of 'pairs', too. Good job!

Nice capture of this winter scene. It looks really cold. Beautiful composition enhanced by the good contrast of the tree branches with the snow. The light is great.

Very nice shot again about my hometown, strong compo, i can see the point (3x2 system)... Nice work!!! The first tower is
"Maiden Tower" and second one "Kiek in de Kök" was the most powerful cannon tower in 16th-century Northern Europe.

Beautiful symbolism in this lovely picture. The two towers and the two figures moving for a meeting. But will the meet each other or will they each follow their own direction?
zeca (19762) 2006-04-20 2:58
Two towers, two trees, two people... I like your composition! That long shadows are great, and really add to the photo! Enigmatic!
Didi (59192) 2006-04-30 13:58
Every thing going two by two.
Two character in oposition; two trees, two towers and one good composition.
