A walk in a small park on the edge of Tallinn's old town. It's mid afternoon but already the sun is casting long shadows across the snow. The weather is cold but crisp - very pleasant for a bracing stroll.
This will be my last post for a while. I'm on a trip to Bangladesh for a couple of weeks.

Spectacular dramatic light capture in here! I love the strong contrasts, between all the sillouettes and the bright sunlighted areas. Wonderful composition, with that couple and the church adding interest to the image. Congratulations!
I envy your travels...Have a nice time in Bangladesh!

Hi Jonathan, Good to show the warm colors in the cold days with the shadow to well frame the scene. You have well depicted the quiet and peaceful environment.
jafadabret (56501) 2006-02-11 13:15
Jonathan, rapporte-nous de belles photos de ton voyage. Cette photo est superbe. La lumière a très bien été maîtrisée pour donner une ambiance de fin de journée sur la neige. Les silhouettes des arbres des clochers et des promeneurs sont bien rendues. Beau travail !

Hi Jonathan - this could be taken anywhere in Europe but the light and silhouettes combine to give a wonderful winter atmosphere, I like how you hid the sun behind the tree, have fun in Bangladesh, look forward to the photos.

A really nice winter picture. The light is really wonderful and I like the composition too. Very good work. Have a nice time in Bangladesh!

Great golden atmosphere
alvaraalto (13036) 2006-02-11 17:51
Great moody picture. I regret that it aren’t my footsteps in the sun-drenched warm-yellow snow. Excellent the transition in the sky from the sunlight to the blue area’s. And than the great contrast with the trees and the buildings.

Hello Jonathan. Great shot against the light, the sillouettes are great, the golden light streaking across the snow is wonderful and a nice, leasurely inclusion of people top it off. nice work and have a good trip... you seem to never stop traveling!

What a contrast to your Sri Lanka series!
A nice coaapture of wintermood,I like the graphism and the light here a lot.

Good use of the light here. You have captured the shadows well and he silhouette of the trees adds good contrast. The two spires work well in the composition too. Still looking for my D200!
Cormac (26565) 2006-02-12 11:19
Great winter scene! I like the shot toward the sun, with the sun hidden behind the tree. Lots of interesting shadows. I like the two people, echoed by the two towers in the background. Well done!
BlaiseCendrars (0) 2006-02-13 8:38
An exceptionally pleasing detail is the numerical symmetry of the two identical church towers and the couple below. That is excellent timing and attention. Light is superb. You're right about the difficulty in seeing any difference in terms of noise or quality in the low resolution images on TE but I must say your Tallinn shots look very crisp.
Stepan (27210) 2006-02-13 15:26
So different from your former pics and atmosphere !
Great warm light, with a good vertical framing.
Have a good trip.
cengiz (3593) 2006-02-14 9:13

Marvellous atmosphere from the winter sun here - Excellent management of exposure and the overall scene is very attractive with the silhouetted church and the branches framing. Beautiful work. I look forward to seeing some interesting shots on your return!
Vato_Law (12720) 2006-02-15 19:07
great photo, well composed and sharpenned. The colors created by the sun reflex in the snow are very nice
hampshiregirl (493) 2006-02-16 17:38
I love the lightning and composition. I also like the fact that there are two people walking. Beautiful! Best wishes!

This is the best photograph that you have posted since the end of your Afghanistan series, Jonathan. You have controlled the light very well, composition is excellent, as is the contrast and DOF. This very much deserves all the accolades you have received above. Cheers . . . David

Jonathan have you got the wrong year on your "date taken" as the D200 has only just come out!

A beautiful winter sight. The setting to against light is very beautiful, with the silhouettes of both towers and the trees.
The people walking on the snow it gives life to the set.
Good lighting in the afternoon.
