Portrait try-outs

Tried to create double exposures with a self portrait i took on Sunday. Fun to do, still looking for the perfect fine tuning. But it was nice to see how easy it actually is.. and the final image is a B&W portrait from the same session which i’m quite pleased with

The Kop van Zuid is an area in Rotterdam situated along the Maas river and is developing into a very modern part of the city with large skyscrapers. Took a few images a while back when i was in Rotterdam and made a new edit today. Shot taken from the Erasmus bridge

Euromast: Rotterdam’s Tallest

Leave a comment

Euromast klein

The famous eyecatcher of Rotterdam, the Euromast, has an elevator which brings you up +200 meters in the air while spiraling along the central column. When i first moved upward i was a bit shocked to notice we would turn around the central column. But then i realized that as we were all buckled in our seatbelts, we needed to go round to see the entire cityscape. This is from another time, when we were strolling the city. Took this photo while passing through and found it today. Never edited it before, but i think in this cut out it its actually quite a nice architectural picture..

Wish you a nice weekend in advance!

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 🙂

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 🙂

Holland Amerika Lijn

Holland Amerika Lijn

As i promised yesterday, this post is the original for Abstract Sky. It is a picture of the old warf building for Dutch travelers going to America, hence the name Holland Amerika Lijn (lijn is Dutch for line). It now serves as a hotel and it is very nice indeed to see this old building in between the giant cruise ships and the two towers surrounding this famous building.

Can you recognize the pattern from Abstract Sky? I can’t actually, but it’s probably part of the sky hehe
