December has been temperate in southern Finland. No snow, no ice. I took these three shots of the dark city three days ago. Three different subjects, three different postprocessing.
The first image is a traditional Christmas time view to the Helsinki Cathedral.I was one of the many taking this picture. (One image, hand-held, standard postprocessing, 1/30s, f/4.0, ISO 3200.)
In the second picture is a cruise ship (or ferry) almost ready to sail to Stockholm, Sweden. (Combination of two images of different exposures, to make sky more dramatic, 1/5s, f/4.0, ISO 3200.)
The third image is towards Katajanokka, where is a Ferris wheel offering an unobstructed view over Helsinki. (One image, the wheel edited in Photoshop to create vertiginous feeling, 5s, f/4.0, ISO 100.)
