I pass this place frequently, and I’ve been meaning to take a picture of it already for quite awhile. Not specifically because of this, for this blog, but just because it’s such a cute, almost idyllic place.
Maybe in this particular form it’s not really such an idyllic place, but it shows well how looks can be deceiving. I wondered about it when I first saw it.

That’s one of the chimneys of Helsingin Energia in the background. The exhaust is especially pronounced in winter, during those cold and crispy days.
(oh, and yeah, I did some stuff in Photoshop on the top one. It’s hardly noticeable, but I thought I’d mention it 😉 )

So not to confuse with HDR, because this hasn’t seen any HDR (and no, it’s not just about dragging the saturation slider to +100)  😉
If you’re intending to over-do it, with pictures that are suitable, it’s actually quite fun…
