Stunning modern architecture in Tallinn, Estonia
Lens: DA16-85 Camera: KP 
Posted By: newmikey, 06-17-2022, 09:50 AM

I'm here for a single week for work so most of what I see is the airport, the hotel and the office. But I do get to walk around a bit as this is the time of the "white nights" in the Northern midsummer when it almost never gets dark and the sun only sets late at night. The architecture in the industrial zone caught my eye last time I was here but I only had the 50-135mm with me then. This time I packed light (on purpose) and brought the much-maligned 16-85mm. It warps and distorts like mad but the Lensfun library in Darktable seems to have an exceptionally good grip on this lens.

Besides just converting the raws in Darktable, I also did quite a bit of 2-way keystone correction in that program. The automatic line-finding module did excellent with these. Afterwards, I post-processed and finetuned framing in Showfoto (Digikams image editor) and tweaked colors and sharpness quite a bit.

Intriguing images. I love the way the glass distorts the reflection in the third picture. Thanks for sharing.

The city certainly has some interesting architecture. Didn't realize it had such extended daylight hours. Looked it up and found it to be quite north. Thanks for sharing the nice images and information.
