Singel Canal by Francy-93 Singel Canal by Francy-93
Amsterdam by night: long exposure shot.

This is the Singel, one of the best canal of amsterdam, that encircled the medieval city.
The canal runs from the Central Station to the Muntplein square, where it meets the Amstel river. It is now the inner-most canal in Amsterdam's semicircular ring of canals.
Amsterdam's famous flower market, Bloemenmarkt, is located along the Singel. The market stalls are actually boats floating in the canal, I visited it and it's really a wonderful view.

Beautiful shot! I was born and raised in Holland before I moved to Alaska in '99 :) Amsterdam is so amazing. The channels.. the old architecture.. Definitely something I miss! You sure captured it in this one! *homesick*

I really loved that city, I wish I could visit it one more time! Did you see the windmills in Zaanse Schan? They're also in Holland and I found that place very beautiful!

De Zaanse Schans :) Yes very pretty! I love the old windmills in Holland. Especially if they are lined up like that. I am originally from Utrecht myself. Very beautiful city and I miss it all the time. Good thing I go back almost every year to visit haha

Very nice! I guess the most difficult part is the cars passing by at the lanes and the leaves moving.

a critique from an amateur :-)
- composition - i like it for not being symmetrical so good choice, however, i would not include that branch , i don't feel it contributes anything to the photo especially when it's not focused and bit blurry (i guess due to the wind and long exposure).
- light - i think the best time for such a shot would be right after sunset when the sky are cyan blue and rather than night, yours does have a blue sky but the overall tone is night.
- there is a bright spot on the trees on the right, i hope its not a speck on the sensor.
- you could take 2 exposures: 1. to get the moon in details 2. this one, then blend them together.

but overall, not bad to get yourself a :hug: :-)

Thanks, I really appreciated that!
I wish I could have done it during sunset too, but I didn't have the time :(
For the spot I think it's just some dirt on the lens, because I don't have problem with the sensor right now :)
About the moon.. well it's a great idea, I didn't think of that, next time I will absolutely try it!
Thanks again! :D
