Circled view in Antwerp

I have not been to Belgium that much yet, only for a 1-2 days few years back. But I never posted a photo from there, that is until today.

This photo was taken from the top of the Museum aan de Stroom there. It was freely accessible, so I tried to get a photo from it. But as you can see, the top is completely surrounded by a glass wall. And towards every side, there was only one hole you could put a lens through. And it was not even that big. The weather and sunset were not that spectacular, so instead of taking a photo through it, here I did a photo with it. It does add something different to the composition. Normally when I do photos like this, I like to create an out of focus version for the border, so that just the middle part is focused. But looks like I forgot to do that.

If you wonder why I did not do a photo of the beautiful main square instead, it was because of bad luck. The only day I was there, they were preparing for a marathon or a bike race, or something like that, and there was a huge ugly tribune right in the middle of the square, hiding everything. So no luck there.

This is a three exposure blend, done in Photoshop.
