The Classic Amsterdam Shot


Amsterdam, Netherlands

December 24, 201618 mm: ISO 400: f/7.1: 1/60 sec.

In scouting out the internet for photo locations in Amsterdam, this is the shot I saw more often than anything else.  As we walked around the canal ring throughout the day, I kept my eye out for the perfect location and I never found it.  Almost every bridge was covered with bikes so I couldn’t get a single strong subject.  This bridge came pretty close.  The bike wasn’t my favorite and I had to cut it a little short on the right edge to avoid a second bike, but overall I am pleased as the houses add good color and there is a church in the background.
