This year Christmas in Tampere will be snowless. So this one is from the last year.
Christmas market tradition is actually rather young in Finland, and we have got a lot of influence from German Weihnachtsmarkt. And Market of Tampere has a few traders from Germany too.

En Finlande, c'est à l'extérieur que les choses se passent en hiver.Les gens semblent bien apprécier ce marché de Noel avec cette belle lumière qui semble réchauffer. C'est techniquement très bien réussi.

That looks cold night shot but pleasant to view where the joyous mood is so well depicted here. The pov and compo is fine with the big Christmas tree anchors as strong focal. I love the use of warm light, people presence and all the splash of colours fulfilling the moment, calm and peaceful in true spirit of the occasion. You did your best here, its a splendid capture so well executed.
Seasonal greetings.. Have a Wonderful White Xmas

But at least there are archive photos. marvelous Market, nice magic atmosphere. The markets in England, specially in Birmingham were also german, from Frankfurt. lovely view.
I wish you beautiful Christmas full of love and joy.

After sweating in such humid conditions here, it really is so strange to see White Christmases and people wearing heavy coats. But you'll see what I mean when you arrive here soon. I like the Christmas lights, the reflections and the sense of movement. It creates such a warm, homey feel. Good to see the Christmas spirit is alive and well in Finland.

After very long journey and even longer after-journey recovery I’m again able to view and comment all the beautiful TE photographs.
Nice night market photo with excellent Christmas mood. The lighting is superb and the composition with the Christmas tree and well lit church very goo. The shoppers add nice life to the scene. Very well done.
Wish you and your family a Happy, Healthy & Prosperous New Year.
