Tallinn, May 2009

A month ago I took bus and some 4th time visited the northern neighbour of Latvia - Estonia's capital city Tallinn. For people who don't know much about Tallinn - in short, it's a city of 400 000, located at the northern coast of Tallinn, just 80 km to south from Finland's capital Helsinki. Tallinn has amazing, greatly preserved and authentic feeling Old Town, it has also new modern highrises business district which consists of some 6-7 highrises. It has also lively port, providing intense ship traffic with Helsinki. In my web page there are about 100 pictures of Tallinn from my short 1st May trip. Go to www.urbancentre.net and enjoy! Some examples of the pictures here:

They should remove that ad, it does not belong there.

You should optimize your images Vecais to 200kb. It's enough for the best quality image 800x600 resolution, to believe me look at my photo thread. I heve never saw a full set of your images because my internet (at home and also at work) is too slow for your threads

Unfortunately for you I'm really paranoid regarding to any quality reduction. But now there is a solution for you - see my pics at my web-site! There are gallery type view, you can choose those pics you are interested in and then open each of them separately! For now, there are photos of Tallinn, Vilnius, Paris, Rome and Riga in the page. But I'm working further, and with time there will be all my best pics. I'm working towards huge collection of Riga city pictures, classifying them by 3 criterias: Riga districts (at first - only centre districts, with time - all city), streets and object type.
Btw, my threads will not consist zillions of pics anymore - there will be only some preview pics of web-site, like here - some 10-11 pics. I hope it shouldn't be problem to load them even for slow internet. Btw, what is the speed of your connection?
