I have few more photos of the Eiffel tower edited, but so they are just not in a row, here is one from last year, taken in Zaandam, near Amsterdam. This Intell hotel is quite the unique building, isn’t it?
This is a two shot vertorama, each shot from two exposures.
If you are in Netherlands in early spring, you should definitively visit Keukenhof park. It’s just so full of tulips. I almost visited it a week ago, but than had to skip it. But I will maybe get back soon :) And don’t also forget to check other photos spots I recommend around Amsterdam :)
The colors of Keukenhof
This is quite an untypical photo from me, but I wanted to bring a bit more color to the page :) Also, this was taken one very sunny day, so I’m not completely happy with it, as there are quite a few highlights here. And you can’t do that much with them, as darkening them looks just strange.
I took this photo about two years ago, in the Keukenhof park, at that time still with the Canon 5D mark II. So maybe a bit more dynamic range would help here. But I will see if that helps when I get back with the 5D mark IV.
Probably in every city I visited multiple times, I have a favorite spot from where I like to take photos. And in Amsterdam, it’s this one at the canals. And since there are always multiple other photographers there, I’m not the only one :) You can see all my favorite spots from where to take photos in Amsterdam here.
Blue hour at the canals in Amsterdam
Last week, I spend only one evening in Amsterdam, and so I did not take that many photos. I was staying close to this spot (first one on the Top spots list), so I decided to go there. I took only few shots, during the blue hour, as I was quite tired from the very busy previous day. But from those there are few nice.
So here is one. This is a two shot vertorama, each one from three exposures. I used a brighter one to get the water and a darker one for the sky.
And I’m back after a bit longer trip, that I first thought it will be. I did a lot of photos, but not many landscape or city shots. Still I got few new, that I will share with you in the next days, or until I have to leave again :).
Early morning at the Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam
I spend around half a day in Rotterdam last week, and while the weather during the day was quite ugly, the morning blue hour was quite nice. But just the blue hour, as the sun did not came from behind the thick clouds at all.
So I did a little walk around the Erasmus Bridge and got few shots. I was really happy that I decided to do so, as soon after the sunrise it started raining, and I did not get much afterwards. But I did walk around the center of the city, so I seen a lot of great spots that will really require a revisit, probably very soon :)
This is a blend of two exposures, done in Photoshop.
Last year I just took so many vertoramas. The tilt shift lens I got enabled just so many new compositions and views, many more than I expected. And here is one of them, that I took in the Zaanse Schans in Zaandam near Amsterdam. I actually should go back to Amsterdam again this year, so this will be one of the spots I will definitively revisit again :)
