Greetings from Suomenlinna


Nine new pictures from one of my favorite place, Suomenlinna. This old fortress island is just 15 minute ferry trip away from Helsinki. One can easily spend the whole day just walking around and admiring very idyllic views.

On these pictures I have used the trick I once discovered. First I did my quick and dirty edit, and then I added an extra layer set for 'Multiply' mode and 50% opacity. Then I ran 'Filters > Artistic > Photocopy'. This way I got nice dark cartoon like edges.

  5. Nice! As a land-locked person I particularly enjoyed seeing the lighthouse. I will try out your Gimp-editing suggestions.
