Going Forth

Leave a comment

For now a small break from the writing with images as i notice i like to share some photos too. This one was taken back in 2013. It was very impressive to stand in front of the Forth railway bridge near Edinburgh back in 2013. Such an amazing sight. And then to think it’s over a century old. I tried to create a bit of a mood in this picture. Really worked with the light and the contrast here, to emphasize the bridge and the clouds.

The Star of Rotterdam

Rotterdam star

The infamous Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam has become the icon of the new skyline. Tried to give it a personal touch.
Used this image (https://pnco.wordpress.com/2014/05/16/de-zwaan/) to create this ‘star’. Really love symmetrical photography 🙂

Oh and i’m thinking about picking up a bit of writing too. To be continued!

Reflections of the city

Rotterdam reflectieraam klein

Rotterdam contains an increasing amount of great architecture and tall buildings. Old and new blend in seemingly without effort. Last year when i visited friends i took quite a lot of pictures and i still enjoy strolling through these photos. This is one of them, which i ‘rediscovered’. It’s a photo of a reflecting window with less reflecting panels alongside of it. This is the result i got from it 🙂

Waterwheel

Waterwheel

Today i was testing my parents new camera (Samsung  NX 300M) and it actually is quite a nice camera! Have to learn how to work with manual focus for macro, cause the automatic macro tends to focus on things i am not interested in. But apart from that i’m happy with the way it processes light and shade and also long exposure for waterfalls. So i went to a familiar place and took this photo of a no longer working waterwheel with a small waterfall. Didn’t edit anything but a little autocontrast. It’s fun to explore a new camera!
