A view over the old town of Tallinn. This is taken from one of the viewing platforms on the hill of Toompea. I believe the church is St. Olav's (13th century) but please correct me if I'm mistaken. To the left of the picture can be seen some of the defensive towers that surround the city. In the distance to the right is the port.

Great POV from above the old part of this town and interesting vertical composition, with the church dominating the image, but also the building doing the corner downthere and the branches in foreground and upper part, giving an excellent dephness. I also like the balancing of the image, with all the sky. Good natural colours and lighting.

This is a place I've always wanted to visit - a classic old Baltic city, untouched by the new developments that have ruined such places in the west. Great shot of this classic old city with the distinctive red roofs. This gives a good idea of what the city is like. Well done!

Beautiful red, white blue composition. The red spots of the roofs shows a delightful rhythm. Personally I should have cropped the “traditional” branches at the top.

Lovely view over the roofs of Tallinn on this sunny day. I like the see a part of the sea in the background. The inclusion of the branch on top is good as well. Thanks a lot for sharing!

Wonderful vertical framing in exceptional winter's light. Good approach for this unique cityscape. Good clarity and vivid colours. Well done.
All the best,

Even if I like to discover Talinn in your gallery, I'm surprised you post about Estonia. Whatever, a good pov at a good moment to have a great soft winter light.

Nice to see you on TE again and congrats on your new camera! :-)
Great use of the vertical format and good POV from above to show us the old town of Tallinn. The light is beautiful and I like the branch in the top part of the picture.

Good exposure here with good quality colours and focus. The vantage point is good and creates an impressive view point. Thanks for sharing.
Bangladesh to come soon, no doubt!
PS I've now got the D200, with great difficulty I might add!

Great view of this charming town. Very nice POV with stunning colours. I really like your framing with the branches on the top and the trees on the bottom. It looks a very interesting place to visit.

Classic view of the cityscape, I have an identical one, taken in spring with the same ugly smokestack and all, but the winter snow and the branches above set it apart and the lack of leaves allows a better view of the lower buildings.

I like the red roofs under the sunlight.Good overlooking pov and nice framing with that branch on top.

I was checking your nice portfolio and I liked this view over Tallin. Like this part of tree framing the photo on top, and the architecture of these buildings. Good light, colours and definition.
