Rainy morning at the Rijksmuseum

Today I have for you another photo from my huge photo archive. This one is from one very early rainy morning in Amsterdam. Something like we had today in Bratislava. But as you can clearly see from all the tulips, this was not taken in Autumn, but in the early Spring. That’s why there are also no people in this photo. I saw almost no one around so early in the morning.

This is a blend from 5 exposures, done in Photoshop. This is the fountain behind the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Flowers in Keukenhof

To post something different than a landscape photo again, how about few flowers. I still had some from the Keukenhof park near Amsterdam that I had not posted before, so here they are today.

I do recoment a visit to Keukenhof when you are in Amsterdam, but of course only in the months it’s open. That would be from from the end of March to the end of May. Check out my Top photography spots in Amsterdam for all my recomendations there.

Colorful evening in Amsterdam

Let’s do a photo from Amsterdam today. This is actually from one of my favorite spots there. You can get my whole list of spots in Amsterdam here, and while this exact one is not on the list, it’s really close to spot number 2. Just follow the canal and you will find it. The building on the corner is a bar, and it’s really hard to miss it.

To edit this photo, I split the RAW file into three and edited one for the highlights and one for the shadows. Then I blended them all together in Photoshop.

And here is also a comparison to the original RAW file. As you can see, I mostly kept the sky and brightened everything else.

Colorful bicycle in Amsterdam

I like to use bicycles as foreground elements in my Amsterdam photos. There are so many there and they just fit the city so much. And if I find a nice one, the better. So when I have seen this very colorful bicycle, I knew I wanted to use it in a photo.

This is a two shot vertorama. The bottom part made from a single photo, the top from two. I needed the second, darker one to get rid of some overexposed light in the background.

At the canals in Amsterdam

Let’s stop by Amsterdam with today’s photo. I tried to include the bicycles here, as I do with most of my Amsterdam photos, as the canals with them just identify the city so nicely. Actually while I was taking this one, a car passed behind me, and lit up the bicycles. It was only on one exposure, but I could blend it in easily. Really great to have multiple exposures to work with :)

This is a 5 exposure blend, done in Photoshop.
