Dear TE Friends,
I was walking much in Amsterdam night, I made long walks to my accomodation I enjoyed the evening mood. I think, to take a worthy photo of their mood. I hope, you like this.
Amsterdam is one of the greatest small cities in the world. From its canals to world-famous museums and historical sights, Amsterdam is one of the most romantic and beautiful cities in Europe.
Amsterdam is also a city of tolerance and diversity. It has all the advantages of a big city: culture, nightlife, international restaurants, good transport - but is quiet, and largely thanks to its canals, has a little road traffic. In Amsterdam your destination is never far away, but get a bike for most authentic experience.
Amsterdam is the capital and largest city of the Netherlands, located in the province of North Holland in the west of the country. The city, which had a population of 747,290 on 1 January 2008, comprises the northern part of the Randstad, the 6th-largest metropolitan area in Europe, with a population of around 6.7 million.
Its name is derived from Amstel dam,indicative of the city's origin: a dam in the river Amstel where the Dam Square is today. Settled as a small fishing village in the late 12th century, Amsterdam became one of the most important ports in the world during the Dutch Golden Age, a result of its innovative developments in trade. During that time, the city was the leading centre for finance and diamonds. In the 19th and 20th centuries, the city expanded and many new neighbourhoods and suburbs were formed.
The city is the financial and cultural capital of the Netherlands. Many large Dutch institutions have their headquarters there, and 7 of the world's top 500 companies, including Philips and ING, are based in the city. The Amsterdam Stock Exchange, part of Euronext, is located in the city centre. Amsterdam's main attractions, including its historic canals, the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, Anne Frank House, its red-light district and its many cannabis coffee shops, draw 4.2 million tourists annually.

Très belle photo nocturne de ce bel endroit. La saturation des couleurs donne un aspect féérique à cette belle image d'Amsterdam.

A lovely street scene of Amsterdam with beautiful colours and fantastic light and reflections.
Very well done.
jurgen (2074) 2009-03-17 3:42
Certainly a nice picture of this interesting city. The use of yellows and blues --negative colours to each other-- helps to draw the attention to the picture.
I do remember the city as you portray it here, with bridges, classic houses some storeys high and cannals everywere.

A great photo composition here, friend. The exposure looks perfect in the blue hour. well done!
ktanska (26809) 2009-03-17 5:01
Beautiful blue hour lights. Those white window frames show really nicely even on low light. Reflections from the canal add warmth with that glow.

great city lights that make the night amazing.. didn't you use tripod for 2 seconds? really nice result..
asajernigan (21427) 2009-03-17 9:42
This is a great blue hour shot with excellent blending of natural and artificial lighting. The reflection is fine giving the shot good depth. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and detail. The canal leads the eye into the shot giving the photo nice direction.

Once again nice image from Amsterdam.
You perfectly used the lights here.
Have a nice day,
hispic (9652) 2009-03-17 19:58
Warm lights of Amsterdam have been beautifully captured with an excellent composition. It seems that it was a windy day a little. the reflection may be better when it's more blurred softly. Light balance between the windows and the sky in blue hour is truely excellent.
ChrisJ (109532) 2009-03-17 21:11
Superb warm -vs- cold colour contrasts, between the blue & amber, in this marvellous nocturnal shot. Good sharpness & contrast. The triple arched bridge makes a fine focal point. Tfs!
Cretense (68701) 2009-03-18 5:09
Fantastic blue hour, excellent architecture photo! Great framing and composition and once again that combination of blue and orange-gold that I love so much! Congratulations!

Bonjour mon ami,
couleurs nocturnes très chaudes. C'est la 3e photo d'amsterdam que je critique en quelques minutes, c'est dire que cette ville magnifique d'ailleurs, à beaucoup de succès. Le force séductive des maisons d'antan.
Nette et bien cadrée.
