Vilnius is a very nice looking city! I do like the buildings and streets here, they are really clean and easy on the eye.

Great shots. The city looks quite clean and all the newly renovated buildings look fantastic as well.

Fantastic pictures of a magnetically attractive city! Looks like you use polarizer?

Hmm, I'm not so sure - I have took many beautiful sunnytime pics without it. I tried out polarizer and really can't decide whether it's better with or without it. The sky looks better with polarizer because then there is something more visible, which otherwise is lost in reflected light. I like the unusual contrast effect between sky and buildings too. But, on the other hand, polarizer makes pics a bit more dim, less bright and vivid, and actually, the pic is farther from the real view which you see with eyes and for me it is quite important to make picture look as close to reality as possible. But sometimes some interesting effects are very great - so, I couldn't decide and today I walked around the city and took 2 versions of almost every view - one with and one without polarizer!

By the way, what is your camera?
