This shot has a too high contrast and balck point imo, I do like the compo, so a little longer exposure could give a beter image. While i like the shades in the lower left, the one of you could be prevented maybe. TFS Aavo.

I have no original one more, because it is not important scene for me, just nice sunset time. I remember, I turned light littlebit off, but not added contrast. It was not so dark. I changed my main monitor brigthness littlebit down few weeks ago and now back brighter again. So, I probably see pictures littlebit brighter on my desk, than you. I try not to forget about it furter :)
Here is touch more light. You will probably see now brighter pic.

And about my own shadow. This is weekness of 2011 model EVF - in reallity I was not able to see my own shadow in low light area, if compared to it well lighted areas are included. so, the best VF for camera is EVF/OVF combo. We can see, is something for NEX or future NEX cameras coming Despite of this I like EVF much more than OVF. I left my shadow on the pic, despite the scene can be croped.

We spent a couple of days in Helsinki. Weather and light wasn't the greatest but here's some to share:

1: Temppeliaukio-kerk (integrated with the rock it is dug out of)

NEX5 + E10-18/4

2: Sibelius and his monument (by the look on his face he isn't too happy with the monument either)

NEX6 + E16-50PZ

3: Stockmann, a luxurious (and expensive) department store

NEX6 + E16-50PZ

4: Hakaniemi Market Hall during the blue hour

NEX5 + E10-18/4

5: Aleksanterin teatteri, a lovely little theatre laying a bit out of the city centre

NEX6 + E10-18/4

6: With beautiful entrance arches

NEX6 + E10-18/4

More to come
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here
