Most of my shots from recent travel are from blue hours. With the weather and absence of any leaves on the trees, this is for me the best way to get some color into the shot here :). This is mostly a single exposure, I used a second, darker one to darken few spots, especially a strong light that shined right onto the tower.

So finally it was not raining in the morning, and I could go out to take few photos. So I decided to go to the I am Amsterdam sign. I hopped on a bus, and since I don’t know the locations of all the stops, I was looking at the display, to see where to get out. And it was, 4 stops to my destination, 3 stops, 2 stops, I’d should have gotten out 2 stops ago. What? I have no idea why, but the bus just skipped few stops, and I ended on a completely different stop I needed to. So until I caught a bus back, the morning blue hour was almost over and I got maybe 3-4 shots before the lights turned off. Just my luck.

But here is one of the photos I got. It’s a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

The weather is playing tricks on me these days. The second day in a row, I got up before sunrise, looked out the window and it’s not raining. So I get dressed, take my gear, and the moment I step outside it starts raining. I presume, the day I stay in bed, will be the best sunrise ever :)

So no sunrise shot here, but here is one I took yesterday evening. I’m not really sure, the bicycle was really broken, but from the way it’s standing, I would think so :)

My luck with the weather yesterday was just horrible. First I forgot about the time change, so I was waiting for the sunset one hour too early. Then it started raining like crazy (which is really bad when you camera is not weather sealed) and only after I gave up, returned to my flat here and thought I get no photos for that evening anymore, it just stopped and the sky completely cleared up. Really hard to predict the weather conditions here.

But still, I just turned around, and went back out to get at least few shots. And here is one of them. This is a two shot blend, as I needed a darker exposure for the building in the middle.

I wanted to share with you a photo from Amsterdam yesterday, but due to the late arrival, I was not able to. But today I got to take new photos, so here is the first one. As this is quite a popular spot for photographers, I thought to go with a bit more unusual composition, where the TSE lens really helped a lot. I hope you like it.
