Hienoa Jukka niin kuin aina! :) It's great to see her in Helsinki after so many years, even for a while and as Tallink Latvia's ferry. After all she trafficed that actual quay for two years out of her three years post between Helsinki and Tallinn in the mid 90's. Those were the days. ;)

Hi Michael! Thanks for your compliment. I am sorry to disappoint you, but this picture was shot with a normal "pocket camera" lens (a good Leica one, it is true) and a built-in exposure program. My camera is a Panasonic DMC-FZ50 "super-pocket" one. One of its built in scene programs ("Night Scenery") automatically chooses the appropriate settings, in this case it used a shutter speed of 3.2 sec, aperture 6.3 and ISO 100. That's all - I just had to push the button. With a tripode, of course.

Kind regards,
