Big christmas tree on Keskustori (Central Square) of Tampere. Vanha Kirkko (the Old Church) in the background. In Finland christmas trees are practically always Norway Spruce (Picea abies).

Hi Kari. Lovely atmosphere. Quiet for a central square- just nice to admire the tree and the church. Beautiful coloured sky. Regards. Klaudio.

The colors have become perfect. especially the white/cream color of the church suits well with the snowy place. furthermore, the lights on the tree makes a warm atmosphere. Overall it is a fine night photo

Only one person in sight in the blue hour and she looks as is she is getting ready to take a photo too. You chose an excellent POV as the resultant composition works very well with the huge tree balanced by the church. Both elements are well exposed. Good work

Perfect graphical contrast between the Christmas tree and the elegant architecture of the church. The setting is organized well, and the presence of the woman gives a good reference and many life to this scene at the blue hour, which has a good aesthetic effect.

A lovely capture in square frame that makes it even more attractive. Great sky color and the tree with the church tower looming on each side complete this holiday composition

A nice Xmas scene though a bit late in the blue hour, the woman helps well the church to balance the scene. Considering the date I guess shooting time was about 2PM ;-)
Have a nice day, JY

la Finlande semble être un des berceaux des contes de Noël et du Santa Claus.
D'ailleurs pourquoi des rennes devant le traineau.
Voilà une photo qui respire bien les fêtes de fin d'année.

This is a fine composition, where you make well use of present light!
Wise to include the girl, and the combination with the church is wonderful...
Seasonal greetings from Norway,

I like a lot this one, with great use of the blue hour last light, and perfect exposure on all parts of the image.
