Amsterdam - The Netherlands

Amsterdam

By me

First pictures are from February 2009, more pics will follow when I visit the city again. Which happens about 5 - 10 times a year These first 82 pictures are from the oldtown. I'll make pictures of the businessdistrict and other stuff later this year or next year.

13. This sucks about Amsterdam. There is no place to have a great overview of Amsterdam. Maybe some church towers, but they are all closed during the winter. So here are some crappy pictures, but just to give you a view. Made them through a dirty window.

Very nice collection of a beautiful city!

One point of advice. Try to take street images with more perspective with a fore and backhground.

Okay then, how about some NIGHT SHOTS next time?!

There are some dark-ish shots here, but no proper night shots. Amsterdam looks so beautiful at night!

I know I know.. I was about to, but my photocamera and the night just aren't a great couple.. Don't know why, but it doesn't matter which function I use, all my nightschots are blurry and ugly..
