Same "Tuomiokirkko" cathedral I told you about two days ago :)
As I mentionned it, the sunset lasts very long in Finland during the summer so I had plenty of time to walk around the "Senate place" and the harbour not very far to try to make nice night shots from the different building around.
My estimation was that the "Blue hour" lasted for a little bit more than one hour instead of 10 minutes like in Paris in summer. A real photographer dream I tell you !!!
No cropping, USM applied.

Non seulement ca dure beaucoup plus longtemps, mais la lumière est aussi beaucoup plus belle !! En hiver par contre, c'est un peu moins gai...
Une jolie prise de vue pour cette cathédrale, qui accentue encore sa position dominatrice sur la ville. Bien joué !
(tiens, je remarque que deux piliers ont été endommagés depuis que je l'ai vue en septembre dernier... Tu n'as pas tenté un petit coup de tampon pour réparer ca ?)

This is an amazing shot. The deep sea blue sky colour contrasts well with the sharp, well lit Cathedral. Perfect composition with a good angle to view from. Nice one!

I like your bold, centred composition. It gives a strong impression of the size and power of the building.
Great light with the blue still in the sky and the warm spotlights on the building.

I just love this shot of the Lutheran cathedral. I tried to do something similar during my visit to Helsinki, but never maanged as good a shot as this. You captured the building in that magical hour on dusk - great lighting, nicely symmetrical and sharp imagery. Great stuff!
