During a recent business trip to India I had one Sunday free to take some photos around town.
Night time exposure in Amsterdam with a view on the Old Church (oude kerk) during dusk.
Daytime long exposure (one minute plus) of the grachten of Amsterdam. People, boats, anything moving disappeared and turned the water nice and smooth.
Long Exposure at Scheveningen. Not really sure why I left it in color, its tinted and doesn’t really add much to the image. Also the water didn’t smooth out as nicely as I expected. Should have close the aperture more and gone for at least a 4 minute exposure.
Long exposure at the Dam with a view of the Palace. Lots of tourists around and street performers who all slowly turn blurry and invisible.
Minimalistic sunset over Scheveningen Pier which is for sale for 1 euro. (the pier not the photo).
GIF taken at Kinderdijk, one of the major tourist attraction where you can visit windmills.
In 2012 we visited the South of Spain and one of day trips was to Cordoba to visit the mosque/cathedral of Cordoba. It’s huge and very interesting because of its history of switching between a mosque and cathedral. Currently the building is used as a cathedral and Islamic prayers are not allowed.
My Canon ultra wideangle came in very handy. One the many Unesco World heritage site we’ve visited in the world. I should make a list one day to see which ones we have been to.
I’ve also noticed when editing these photos that it is hard to keep the lines straight. Especially in such a building with many different lines and using a wideangle lens it is very easy to get crooked lines and distorted perspectives. Not real advice, but keep that in mind.
