OK, let me start this thread with a few pictures of my own, but everyone who participated should add his/her own pictures too!

I am quite devastated as one of my CF cards got corrupted, and I lost about 50 of my pictures.. :( All my sunset pictures are gone... :eek:hno:

Love lockdown?

So great to see another bunch of photos! It is soooo sad that you have lost 50 of your photos. Hope those several which you made standing on Mindaugas bridge are still alive :) Can't wait to see the rest of the photos. Great job, DD :eek:kay:

Thanks, all.

@Big Cat: The pictures from the bridge as well as the sunset ones and the ones from the hill near Belmontas were among those lost... :(

IceCheese is looking for a suitable place for his new love padlock while Big Cat is regretting he threw away the key to his.

What a great pleasure to see photos of Vilnius taken by a non-local photographer :)

DD, how did you enjoy the view from the TV Tower? I guess it's no much short of Pyongyang :D... but I actually like it. Looks so urban and big from up there. My commieblock can also be seen somewhere in that mass of concrete (although not in your picture, it's just slightly to the right at the top, far far away).

Waiting for more! :)

Great photos guys - the place looks lovely!

I hope to see some from when alcohol was involved :D



@DD - I think there a programs that can reconstruct data on broken memory cards - it may be worth looking into..

I haven't try so I can't recommend any program by a google search gave a lot of options..

@muster: Thanks!

@Pansori: Yeah, I think Vilnius looks much bigger than it actually is. Maybe I caught your block in another picture.

@FREKI: Thanks. I figured there would be something like that. I am just wondering if it will be worth it, or if anyone can recommend a tool to correct broken data on a CF card.

I think most of my pictures involved some level of alcohol considering all the bars and restaurants we went to.... but I guess you want to see some embarrassing ones... ;)

Thanks, IceCheese. Finally, I'm not the only one posting pictures from the meet-up!


@Big Cat: Thanks, man!

@Þróndeimr: Thanks, yeah, I know it happened to you too... :( It sucks... Did you use any program to try to fix it? If so, what did you use and how were the results?

I tried several recovery programs that were supose to be the best. Nothing helped though, but you should try them just in case the card isn't as broken as it might appear to be. I have one last option, send the card to a professional firm that recover things from destroyed datas, but that costs a fortune. Recovery of my 8GB card would have costed more than a flight ticket back to HK...

Thanks for posting your pics guys. I see the SBA/Green Hall building seen from TV tower blends in nicely in the overall highrise view.

The drink is known worldwide as "kvass" (or kwass) although in Lithuania it's called "gira". Did you try it? How was it? I personaly love it much better than any of the soft fizzy drinks. It's like an alternative to beer if you don't want to get drunk.
