First image 2020

I have edited the very first image of 2020 and lets share! ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s a 180 degree panorama at the Kloveniersburgwal shot at 6:40am in spring a couple of years ago. Big advantage of the morning blue hour is of course the mirror-like reflection, no photoshop needed (what you unfortunately see so often…)

Amsterdam in winter, at night and some more testing

Hi there, back with some hometown shooting and testing different effects, filters, settings etc.

Let’s start with some night shots with (or without) the moon on some cold winter nights ๐Ÿ˜‰

First a very famous touristic spot on the Singel canal, blue hour 14mm wide angle

Next a 180 degree panorama, same night, at a nice intersection at the Brouwersgracht and the Herengracht, one canal behind the previous image

Same place, next day, now with the moon above the canal houses in the blue hour

And back to the Singel again, same spot as the first image, this time also with the moon shining bright. Taken with the Samyang 14mm, I guess at f9 (manual, so not sure)

This is at the Bloemgracht, as you can see next to the Westerkerk church. Beautiful little canal but difficult to capture because of the tight working space and therefor extreme angles needed. Maybe next time I’ll try to panorama this spot…

Unfortunately we won’t go skiing this year (for 2 obvious reasons) but we do have the memories of our vacation back in 2016. Here is a small selection (1,63% haha) of the images I shot.

Hotel view, called panorama hutte for obvious reasons
