    Too funny D70, but my boss would murder me. We've got a few months of hard yacka left in front of us this year to roll out an electrified rail network, we're at the pointy end of the project.

    Thanks for all the replies. Sorry if I'm a bit slow replying, I had to do lots of work this week for my graduation project.

    There were lots of colourful builidings in Riga and Tallinn, so in that respect I think the pictures give a fairly accurate depiction of the cities. However, the processing and camera settings also play a role here.

    My camera is on vivid. Additionally, in Capture NX I ofen use a combination of D-Lighting and curves that to increase the contrast. As a side-effect, this does cause some increase in the saturation. Especially the greens tend to become a bit oversaturated, so I typically reduce the saturation locally to keep the pictures realistic.

    Many of the pictures in this thread were taken between the late morning and early afternoon and under these lighting conditions, colours tend to get washed out a little. In processing I try to recover these colours, although, admittedly, I sometimes go a bit over the top.

    I missed the news on the fire. I couldn't find any information on it either. Was there a lot of damage?

    The Freedom Monument was build by the Latvians themselves in 1935 to commemorate the Latvian war of Independence (against Russia). Although the style of the monument looks somewhat Communist, it is an actual freedom monument. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_Monument)

    Thanks Prospero. So it was built to commemorate freedom from a foreign power which is fair enough. It always rankles me to hear about the Commies claiming they 'liberate' people. All they do is enslave in the name of freedom.

    Try to make it to the Geiranger Fjord if you haven't been there. Despite looking in Flickr and search engines, I haven't yet come across a picture that truly conveys the impact of seeing it (on a non foggy day) in person. We were already very impressed by the mountains and scenery on our way there, but we were in shock when we first saw it and all that we saw before reaching the fjord was more or less forgotten in those moments. Blown highlights combined with the dark rocks of the mountains could be a bit problem for cameras there.

    I was just joking with Dread as he just completed a 5 week jaunt, with his tribe, across the USA...

    ... although it would be fun to see that part of Europe, as I've never been North of Kobenhaven.
