Copenhagen Gallery 2012

In May 2012, I spent a weekend in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark. In contrast to my usual habit, I used a compact camera this time, a Nikon Coolpix P7100. I like this camera because it is
able to shoot in RAW format and because many of its functions can be controlled manually. The image files were processed with Adobe DNG Converter 6.6, Rawtherapee 3.0, The Gimp 2.6, and Imagemagick.
The P7100 produced excellent photos at ISO 100. At higher ISO values, the images became too noisy for my taste. I had expected this because the sensor is relatively small (compared with my Nikon D300S).
I enjoyed my short trip Copenhagen. Unfortunately, I didn't have the time to stay longer. The city has a rich cultural heritage, and the Danes impressed me by their friendliness and relaxed lifestyle. Here are a few pictures:

The M16 assault rifles are a bad match for the historic uniforms. Muzzleloaders would have been a much better choice...
