The recent night shots have been great. I love to see these, since most of them aren't the typical postcard shots of Uspenski or Lutheran, or Eduskunta. Adding the local context of the city - these row buildings, some streets and signs, people, etc. - makes these big shots so much more real. Right on, Niklas.

Very nice. Out of pure curiousity, what shutter speed and aperture did you use to take it?

2 seconds and F/4.1 automatically set by my camera at ISO 50. The picture was shot in RAW mode and exposure compensation (+1,5 EV?) was applied to the dark parts of the image.
