2. Next to the university


3. Lovely houses

Hi There Geoper. Nice photos, it looks sooooooo cold. Like the last photo, nice composition and the building colours look super against the snow and the sky. I bet Finland is a lot colder than Thessaloniki !!!!

Gloves are a must for sure....... I generally forgot mine and end up with FCF ie frozen camera finger hee hee. Yes the snow is fantastic and makes everything look so beautiful ........ wait till it starts to melt and turns to slush!!!

Beautiful shots, really like #1. What is the difference between tone mapping and HDR? Sorry but I'm really ignorant about these post processes.....

Sorry my fault i just wanted to say that the 1st and 2nd are single pictures that have been tone mapped but the last one is 3 bracketed photos that have been tone mapped. I think they both are called HDRs.

Sorry, but I still don't know what a tone mapping is.... I think I know what HDR is, though. Is tone mapping a technique to improve the dynamic range using a post process software?

Hmmm, it sounds like HDR is one type of tone mapping. HDR utilizes multiple images combined into one. While tone mapping is a more general term to enhance the dynamic range of an image using different methods.
