Photographer's Note

Here is a photo of Haarlem, which I took when I was standing on a brigde over a river called Spaarne.

The tower you see is the Bakernesser tower, which was founded in 1250. To the right of the church, you see a grey building with a dark roof, that is the Weigh House (Waag), which was erected by Lieven de Key in 1597-98. It was in use until 1915 for the weighing of goods brought in on the river Spaarne.

To the very right is the Theylers museum (with the green statue on the roof), the oldest public museum in the Netherlands. The people you see are all waiting to see a Michelangelo exhibition.

The round roof between the Weigh House and the Theylers museum is the roof of a prison (I thought).

It was snowing today in Haarlem, but sometimes the sun came and most snow is already melted. I took this photo when the sun just came from behind a cloud.

This is the pp-work I did with the photo:
-rotating and cropping
-more contrasts +27%
-more blue +23%
-resizing
-sharpening + 37%
-more light + 2%
-kill the noice of the sky with the dust function on 1 pixel
